After a long, dreary winter, most of us are ready to grab onto the sights and sounds that warmer weather brings. One way to do that is by updating your home – both indoors and outdoors — with pops of vibrant color.
You’ll see how easy and affordable these changes can be with towels and rugs from the Arkwright Home collection. But, first, why is color such a force in our lives? Can color really change our moods?
Scientists answer yes. According to research in what is called “color psychology,” color can evoke emotions, inspire reactions, and change thought patterns.
Colors in the red spectrum (red, orange, and yellow) are considered warm colors that can create feelings that range from warmth and comfort to anger or hostility. On the side of the color spectrum, blues (blue, purple, and green) are the cool colors that can help produce calm feelings but also sadness.
Here are some more specific emotions associated with colors:
Orange represents energy and enthusiasm.
Not everyone experiences color or patterns of color in the same way. In other words, a color or color combination that makes one person feel happy could make another person feel sad. Scientists think the differences in the ways we respond have to do with our culture and past experiences.
What researchers do agree on, however, is that bright colors do tend to liven us up way more than muted shades. So, if you’re ready to let the bright colors of spring and summer reign, here are some great ways to do just that.
