Introducing a new color palette into your Boulder, CO, home or office always brings with it a distinct mood, level of energy or emotion. Most everyone responds to colors in typical ways, making it fairly easy to predict how a room will feel with a new color scheme. Once you know what feelings a color will communicate, you can begin to narrow down your choices.
Understanding how colors can generate a certain disposition will help you in your quest to choose the right color for the right space. At Jacobsen Brothers Painting, we understand the Feng Shui of colors and we can help you select the best color palette and paint for each room.
Looking for more energy to complete your kitchen tasks? Look no farther than a sunny yellow. There’s a reason yellow has been a popular kitchen color in decades past. Yellow brings energy and vitality with a side of nourishment and healthful living—an excellent foundation for any kitchen.
Or, try whites, greens or blues for stability, creativity and tranquility while you enjoy a calm space after a busy day. Unleash your inner chef’s creativity in this supportive and beautiful environment.
Natural colors such as sandstone, browns, terra cotta or taupe can add a spa feel with its restful properties. Eggshell white, gold and yellows are great accompaniments and finish adding the earth qualities to a room that overkills in water qualities. Lavender is also a great bathroom color and brings a sense of relaxation and healing to the space.
If you love blue, this is the place to use it. Blue is the most restful and peaceful color, followed closely by green. Green also adds a sense of healing, growth and renewal. Pair the two and you’ve got a pleasingly sedate setting in which to recharge.
Pink is considered the color of love and is a great choice for the bedroom to create a soft, soothing, loving environment. This gentle color can be used as an accent or as the hero color. Or, try moving into a pink-peach which can be more aesthetically pleasing to both men and women.
Dining Room Distinction
Red has long held the crown for dining rooms as an appetite stimulant and a conversation catalyst. But few have noticed the power of brown in a dining room. Medium browns can subliminally convey satisfying treats, like brownies or coffee, and can keep a calm atmosphere that is good for digestion.
Sage green can also make a beautiful dining room encouraging household harmony and balance. Pair it with another shade or two of green for more depth. Or add a pastel color to add interest and energy.
Living Room Luxury
A cozy living room can be easily found in the colors of blue, blue-green and green. Add a beautiful gray as the trim to help you think creatively or white for a clean look. Accents of pink, peach or orange can add energy and stimulate good conversation.
When you need to get a lot done, make good decisions, and communicate an air of stability and trustworthiness, consider using brown in your office. Red accents add energy to a room and yellow touches help with mental clarity throughout the day. White is a great trim color to bring a fresh touch to your office. Bolder greens, purples, blues or gold can also make great office combinations that can add energy to your day.
How do you want your home to feel?
Looking for security, openness, peace, energy or healing in your home? Busy areas can handle more color, so have fun decorating the laundry room, exercise room and garage. For the other rooms, consider what atmosphere you’d like to create, and then start perusing variations of the colors that work best for that emotion.
At Jacobsen Brothers Painting, we work hard to make sure your home or business has the right ambiance to make life feel a little better.
