HOW THE COLOR OF YOUR DRAPES CAN TRANSFORM A ROOM

Did you know that color is associated with so many things from energy and feelings to memories and associations?  The psychology of color is a real thing and is a very important element to consider when designing a room, from the ceiling down to the floors.

Interior paint, wallcovering, and upholstery are an easy way to bring color into your room, but they are difficult to change.

Contemporary drapes and custom pillows are not only an excellent way of adding color, but you can easily change them when you are ready to freshen your space or even just for the season.  No mess required, just swap out another set of drapes on your same rod, design custom pillows to match, and your room evokes a completely different emotional experience for your family and friends.

Let’s review some popular colors and how they influence mood in a room: Yellow Curtains:

Yellow is a bold color; It’s also considered bright and associated with bright, energy, and of course, the sun.  Some would say it’s an aggressive color, depending on the tone of it, so unless you’re intending to make a bold statement it would be best to stay in the light pastel colors where yellow induces a sense of happiness and “sunny” joy. Red Curtains:

Red is the color of passion and romance; it’s the color of energy.  It is said that the blind can feel red of all the colors because of the pulses that it gives.  Use red in rooms where you want to create energy or an intimate feeling.  Red is sometimes considered for a master bedroom, but because it’s a stimulant color, it’s best for a room you’re not needing to go to sleep in, such as a living room, dining room, or even kitchen. Orange Curtains:

Orange is considered a friendly color; a mix of red (passion) and yellow, (bright and sunny) it’s typically associated with fun and creativity. Orange is an inspiring color, typically promoting movement.  Like red, it’s a stimulant color, and best suited for rooms in which you want to create some energy. Green Curtains:

Green is associated with many things; money, nature, envy…depending on the shade, it can be very relaxing or it can be electrifying. It can remind you of tall pine trees, grass, or even emerald green waters. Green is flexible and can work for any room of the house whether it is to relax or to be entertained. Blue Curtains:

Blue seems to be a common favorite.  This color is typically calming.  It’s associated with the sea, the sky, tranquility restfulness, and peacefulness.  Darker blue fabrics are a great choice for curtains and will add depth to your contemporary interior design. Blue is also said to be the color of honesty and devotion.

All colors have an impact on our emotions and how we experience a space.  Think about how you want you and your guests to feel in a room before deciding which colors to incorporate.
