Colors that help

 

We are still confined, and this seems to be going on for a long time. Enclosed between four walls, homes need more color than ever. And we want to dedicate this article to the colors that best help create harmonious and peaceful spaces, which is what we all need right now.   

Colors directly affect our nervous system and emotions. Has it never happened to you that when you enter a room it has generated a feeling of peace and tranquility, and yet others have generated the opposite? Much has to do with colors. Here is a small selection of some colors that help us generate good feelings for these days of confinement. 

 

Blue 

Blue is a relaxing color and can help calm a busy mind. If it is painted in very soft and neutral tones, blue is an ideal color to use in a room since it is a color that helps to fall asleep. Bright blues can be overly stimulating.

Violet

Violet has a blue base, so this color is also quite relaxing. A soft violet or lilac tone can bring balance and inner peace, as this color helps calm the nervous system and connect body and mind.

Pink

You may not immediately think of pink as a calming color as it has so many bright and vibrant versions. However, a soft pastel pink can bring an element of peace and tranquility to a space.
