I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, You eat with your eyes, but have you ever considered how true this saying actually is? In fact, there’s more to it than meets the eye – your visual experience also plays a significant role in influencing your subconscious mind, specifically in making you feel certain emotions that affect your mood and behaviour. That’s why it’s important to understand interior design psychology before you make any changes to the way your home looks or feels.
Colour has an enormous influence on your subconscious. Specific colours can invoke feelings within us that we may not even be aware of or be able to verbalize. For example, the colour red is known to evoke emotions such as passion, anger, excitement, adventure and more. Green is known to elicit feelings of relaxation, trust, and calmness. These are just two examples out of a myriad of possibilities when it comes to colour psychology! Do you have a favourite colour? How does it make you feel? Be aware! The next time you’re in search of decorating a room in your home, think about whether or not some colour psychology will help set the mood. Is there somewhere else in life where you could use some influence from colour psychology? Maybe at work, school, wherever! Just something to consider…
Interior design shapes can have an effect on your subconscious mind. The shape that is seen more frequently in your home has a psychological impact. Try to make sure each room has a unique shape, such as a circle, oval, or rectangle. This will help you escape from any negative vibes in your life. Different interior design shapes are best for specific rooms, like rectangles in living rooms or bedrooms, while ovals are great for bathrooms and circular shapes work great in kitchens.
