The Psychology of Colour

We all perceive colour in a different way as we quite often associate colour with a certain event or experience.

Understanding how using colour can be a powerful too. It can trigger deep and subtle responses on a subconscious level. We all react to colour, for instance when its a cloudy and a dull day we all feel a little down and can lack energy, yet a bright sunny day will have the opposite effect. Studies have shown that different colours have different physiological effect on us. For instance the colours of red, orange and yellow often have an invogorating effect on us and can pump up our blood pressure therefore these are colours to avoid wearing if you suffer from high blodd pressure.  Colours will stimulate our nervous system and this effects us in different ways. If you was to spend time in a red room for instance and hour would seem to pass far more quickly than if you was sat in a green restful shaded room. 

Different Frequencies of Colour

Each colour offers very individual propertiees. We all have colours that we love and some we detest. Colour can be used to shed light on our personalites and emotions. For instance the colour Orange can make us feel uplifted and boyont, but if you liked a quite life for instance you may feel the colour red and orange make you feel unsettled.  Colour has been known as the “language of the soul”

Black = sorrow

Red = Passion

Green = Envy

White = Peace
