How does colour therapy work?

Colour therapy determines the energies of different colours to provide the best colour strategies for your home

Before we move on to the different spaces of your home and how to instil positive energy in them using wall colours, you need to know a bit about how colour therapy functions. Colour therapy provides extra attention to not just the shade of colour that you will use on your walls but also the sort of energies associated with them. For instance, the colour of the sky represents freedom while red signifies passion. Taking all the energies and the auras surrounding the space being coloured also into account, a colour therapy expert will determine which colour will be optimum for a particular home space.

Living Room

The bedroom is mainly a place for relaxation, healing and sleep. It is also a space for passion and sexual discovery. This idea is crucial to the decision taken by several couples when they paint their master bedroom a shade of red. Do not make this mistake! According to colour therapy experts from around the globe, you should not use overtly bright colours, especially red, in your bedroom. Colours such as red and orange prevent you from having a comfortable sleep, cause arguments and also physically harm those who already have an abundance of the fire element in their auras. It is therefore advised that you go for earthy shades such as beige, pink, clay, peach, brown, sky blue and so on that would calm you down and lull you to sleep.

The living space has to be the most attractive part of your home. You receive your guests here. So, it definitely demands a lot of attention. The living space should be able to provide your guests with a vibe of your home as well as reflect what kind of a person you are. So, go for something hybrid — shades of yellow, blue, or green because you might need some vibrant colours to make the space pop a little, mixed with a white backdrop, perfect for intimate discussions and some me-time. On one of the walls, go for wallpaper, wall murals, wall graffiti or maybe even wall doodles that portray what kind of a personality you possess as an individual. This will add a new dimension and incredible charm to your home decor.

As colour therapy experts, we usually tend to advise people to paint their kitchen walls with myriad shades of yellow, red and orange. This provides protection from the soot and oil as well as maintains a fiery element which is the major energy that must be a part of every kitchen. But, too many vibrant colours might not only be irritating for the eyes, but also cause fire hazards if overdone. If you have an open kitchen, it might even look too garish. So, mediate the shades with a mix of a pop of red or orange with some silver, peach, lemon yellow or other whitish tones. Remember that the key in maintaining vibrant energy lies in balance!

Bath Room

Soaking in the tub or taking a shower can wash away not only the grime from our bodies but also provide the rejuvenating energy we need. As a result, experts on colour theory suggest painting bathroom walls with soft shades like white or light blue or sea-green. All these colour suggestions feel soothing to the eyes and will make sure you exit your bathroom a brand new person. You might also consider having some minimalistic floral wallpaper or light-coloured tiles to add some extra oomph to your decor.

Light Colour
  • If you have a small space and want to make it look bigger, go for lighter colour shades. Dark colours constrict spaces.
  • Avoid too much red as it excites temper and creates scuffles in the household.
  • Orange might be a great colour to handle psychological turmoils.
  • If you are healing and seeking therapy regularly, shades of green are the best for you.
  • Go for more and more pastel colours in your living space as advised even by Vaastu.
