Creating Emotion through Color: Blues

Blue Home

Scientists have studied the effect of color on our mood, health and way of thinking for many years. The preferences we have of one color over another may have something to do with the way color makes us feel.

Light is absorbed by the eye and converted into another form of energy, which enables us to see color. This energy affects and is felt even by people without sight. Light energy stimulates the pituitary and pineal glands, which regulate hormones and other physiological systems in the body.

If a particular color is preferred, it most likely is needed by the body. The pleasant and appealing response the body gives is a sort of “thank you” from body to brain.

Blue is a relaxing color. Pleasant dreams might be the end result of coloring the bedroom in shades of blue. It has a calming effect on the body: it lowers blood pressure, heart rate and respiration and in hot, humid weather has a cooling effect.

Using this information to create the mood you are looking for with your bedroom or sitting room can make the perfect relaxing escape that you need.
