A New Way to Approach Colors


Everyone knows that different colors influence our moods and behavior in different ways: from red, which is energizing, to blue helping to soothe the mind.... 

                                                Which one is your Color? 



Whether we are aware of it or not color plays an important part in all of our lives it affects all our senses, sight, sound, smell, taste and feelings. Seeing color can change our moods very effectively both on a conscious and an unconscious level, 
red for danger or white for peace. We express our creativity 
through color, what color's we choose says a lot, not only about how we feel but how we would like to feel. Color is also used in healing as it has such a powerful affect on the body. This means that all color's can have a positive or negative effect. This effect depends on the individual, the extent of color use, and the purity or saturation of the hue.

COLOR SCHEMES…

Young children love bright primary colors but large areas can be overwhelming. Decorating the nursery room with a subtle, calm color scheme is usually a better choice. Introducing warm colors - rose, peach or primrose - into your baby room decorating ideas will help create a feeling of coziness.
While decorating the nursery with the cool colors - aqua, mint or sky blue - can create a feeling of spaciousness. But it is probably best to keep ideas based on this color range for a room with a warm, sunny aspect.
Touches of bright primary colors bring extra interest and visual stimulation. Introducing wall murals, nursery bedding sets, toys and accessories can transform a room. These are the finishing touches that can bring nursery d├ęcor alive!
