The Mood of Red


 
Interior Design
According to psychologists the color of a room has an effect on your emotions. Here we look at the color red in home decor and the resulting effect on one's mood.

Psychologically the color red is associated with war, anger, strength, danger. It increases metabolism, blood pressure and respirations. It attracts attention and is often used on signs to warn of danger. For example the highway stop signs are painted red. In classic Rome the most powerful men wore red. If your favorite color is red, according to psychologists you are aggressive, you demand attention and you strive hard for success.

So, how do we use red in home décor? Since red is stimulating, one must use it carefully in the home. Too much red can be over stimulating or can produce that over powered or stressed out feeling. Darker red, like maroon or burgundy, are more restrained while brighter shades represent more energy.

If red is your color you have many places in the home in which to use it in varying shades and amounts. Its not easy to come up with the right shade of red for a room. The warmer shades have more orange while the cooler shades have more blue.

Lets start with the first room you are likely to enter when you wake up. If you have a neutral colored bathroom, bright red towels and curtains would be a great "waker-upper." Or you could pull out all the stops and paint the walls red. The brighter the more awakening.

The use of just the right amount of red in a kitchen can make it peppy. Don't overdo it. Use a splash of red here and there in an otherwise neutral room to add energy. Red is said to stimulate the appetite making it a good choice for the dining room. Again, use accent pieces such as a red table cloth and bits of red in white curtains and/or wall décor.

I would suggest a warmer shade of red for the living room in order to provide a more restful atmosphere. The warmer shade is obtained by adding orange to bright red.

Red is not recommended for the bedroom of an overactive child because of its stimulating properties. For most children just a neutral background with only accents of red are recommended.

We'll end this color tour in the bedroom. There are many diverse opinions on whether or not to use red in the bedroom. Red, being a symbol of love, is often the choice while others believe that red is too stimulating for the bedroom. If you like the color red why not go ahead and use it. If you are in the bedroom only at after dark you will see the room by lamplight thus the colors are muted. One attractive bedroom visited by this writer had one wall painted red behind the bed with a matching red chair on the other side of the room. The background color on walls and bed spread was ivory.

In conclusion, if red is your favorite color go ahead and use it by all means. Just remember a little red goes a long way.
