How to use color to convey in interior design
We are wrapping up our series on the psychology of color with this post about natural colors. In Parts 1-3 we discussed dark, light, and bold colors. Our feature series wouldn’t be complete of course without hues that remind us of Mother Nature. To review, we’ve been chatting about the ways that color affects the way people experience a space.
It is not a must that you give this consideration when deciding how to decorate. But, if you want to create a space that has the wow-factor you experience when you enter a room designed by an interior designer, considering color psychology is highly recommended. Especially if you love natural color because you can create an exquisite space that feels grounded and lovely, but also invigorating! Enjoy!
