We have chosen Red, White, and Blue! It is July, we are celebrating our independence
The colors our flag!
As we all know, colors have a direct effect on how we feel. Most of us also know that changing the colors in one area can dramatically change the way a room looks and feels. Colors can affect different people in different ways; sometimes our perceptions of color are affected by our specific cultures, experiences or traditions.
Blue: It’s considered a calming color, primarily because that’s how most people feel looking at a body of water. Light blues – such as aqua or turquoise – are serene and suggestive of energy and creativity. On the other hand, deep blues – such as navy and indigo – are more formal and suggestive of tradition, sophistication, and intelligence.
Red: Red has a variety of meanings that range from love to war! Red suggests warmth, energy, and strength. It is considered royal in some cultures and exudes confidence in others. It’s a very strong color and must be used carefully!
White: What comes to mind when most people think of white are purity, clarity, and innocence. (At least that’s what comes to my mind … what about you?) To you, white might represent integrity, calmness, and cleanliness. It definitely can be used to make a space look larger, lighter and brighter.
Like red, white can be tricky. Sometimes people think they can use any white with any other color and it will work nicely. Well, there are so many shades of white – and they can look very different next to other colors – so choose wisely. Sometimes mixing various shades of white in one space can add sophistication and class so you might consider this approach.
