About the Living Room Color Schemes
The living room color schemes you choose for decorating your room can affect much more than the way your room looks. Psychologists have learned a lot about the way colors affect mood and perspectives. Before you decide to paint your living room motor walls with red fire, learn a little about how the colors affect the living room of your family and your guests.
Color plays a very important role in interior design for a good reason. The colors of the walls, carpets, accessories, and furniture form an enormous part of their environment. Since color can evoke emotional responses – and, some research suggests, the physiological responses of our body – it makes sense to choose the colors that evoke the emotions and feelings that people want sitting in their living room.
The colors you choose for your living room can affect emotions, make your room look bigger or smaller, hotter or colder, sophisticated or rustic. Interesting research conducted in Japan in recent years has even shown that many of the emotions associated with different qualities and values of colors are true across different cultures. In other words, even though many colorful cultures associated with very specific celebrations, people all over the world have emotional reactions similar to most colors. That does not change the fact, however, that many people have very personal reactions to colors based on their own history and experiences.
