What Mood Is on Your Color Palette

What Mood Is on Your Color Palette

Choosing a color palette that conveys the desired feel of each room in your home.

Colors are expressive and communicative. People often associate colors with certain thoughts, emotions, and moods. When picking out your paint color, it’s important to consider mood, style, space, and lighting. Each factor has a direct impact on how a color is perceived. Colors have the power to define and alter the personality, space, energy, and appearance of a room, influencing the mood of the room’s occupants. There are endless possibilities when choosing color options for your home. Having a clear understanding of what to look for in paint colors can help you select a color palette that conveys the desired feel of each room in your home.

Warm Colors

Warm colors consist of yellows, oranges, and certain reds and greens. These colors tend to be bright, cheery, energetic, inviting, powerful, and cozy, to name a few. Warm colors tend to stand out and brighten up rooms. They’re typically used in rooms with the most activity, such as the kitchen and living room.

Cool Colors

Cool colors are commonly perceived as calming. Although they can take on some of the same characteristics as warm colors, they generally invoke different emotions and moods. Cool colors consist of blues, lighter shades of purple, pinks, and greens. These colors are known for creating a calming, formal, and relaxing atmosphere and are best used in bedrooms, bathrooms, and offices, to name a few.

Neutral Colors

Neutral colors consist of browns, greys, tan, white, and black and can be used in almost any room. They tend to take on the characteristics of the colors they’re combined with, enhancing or mitigating those effects. For instance, neutral colors can stand alone or pair with warm or cool colors. Neutral colors can create several different moods, emotions, and thoughts, including mysteriousness, relaxation, calmness, coziness, openness, warmth, and sophistication, to name a few.
