Colour Your Room using My Storage

Colors affects people in many ways, depending upon one’s age, gender, ethnic background or local climate. Certain colors or groups of colors tend to get a similar reaction from most people – the overall difference being in the shade or tones used. So when it comes to decorating, it is important to choose wisely.

Colors behave in three basic ways: active, passive, and neutral. You can easily match every room’s colors to your personal desires, to your taste and to the room’s purpose. Light colors are expansive and airy, making rooms seem larger and brighter. Dark colors are sophisticated and warm, giving large rooms a more intimate appearance.

Each color may have different impact to the room and the people inside.

RedroomRed raises a room’s energy level. Red stimulates conversation, creates a strong impression, stirs up excitement particularly at night.

Application: living room, dining room, entry way, bedroom.


Yellow roomYellow is energizing and uplifting. Yellow can feel expansive and welcoming in the small space. However, in large amounts, this color tends to create feelings of frustration and anger in people.

Application: kitchen, dining room, bathroom, hall, entry.


blue roomBlue is considered calming, relaxing and serene. However, be careful with the tones of the blue. Pretty pastel blue can come across unpleasantly chilly if applied in large amounts, especially in a room that receives little natural light. While dark blue may evoke feelings of sadness.

Application: bedroom, bathroom, family room, living room, large kitchen.


green roomGreen is considered the most restful color for the eye. Green is combining the refreshing quality of blue and the cheerfulness of yellow. Green is calming but warm, promoting comfort and togetherness.

Application: suited for almost any room in the house. Green is associated with fertility, making it a great choice for the bedroom.


purple roomPurple in its darkest values (eg. eggplant) is rich/luxurious, dramatic and sophisticated. In the lighter version (eg. lavender, lilac), purple brings the same calming quality as blue without the risk of feeling chilly.

Application: dark purple as an accent or secondary color, lighter blue for the bedroom.


orange roomOrange evokes excitement, enthusiasm and is an energetic color.

Application: exercise room.


Neutrals (black, gray, white, and brown) are basic and flexible. Add color to liven things up and subtract it to calm things down.


Crimson invokes feels of rage and hostility, and can even make some people feel irritable.

Application: just as an accent or secondary color only.


For the ceilings, it’s a general rule that ceilings that are lighter than the walls feel higher. While darker ceilings feel lower. Visually, the higher ceilings create spacious feeling, while lower ceilings can evoke cozy intimacy.

For the walls, as a general rule, dark walls make a room seem smaller and light walls make a room seem larger.

These general guidelines are a good starting point if you’re considering a perfect paint color for your new home. But remember, color choice is a very personal matter. You are the one who has to live with your new paint color, so choose a hue that suits you, your family and your lifestyle.
