Colours and emotions
Interior designers have long believed that colour can dramatically affectmoods, feelings, and emotions. So it’s important that we set the right tone in our home when we are looking at renovating.Warm colours like red, yellow and orange evoke emotions, such as love, passion, happiness, and anger. Cool colours, like blue, green and purple are linked to calmness, relaxation and creativity and neutral colours such as white and cream are associated with warmth, humility and comfort.
What is a Pantone Colour?
Pantone is the world-renowned authority on colour, producing a standardised colour system that allows individuals to reproduce colours exactly, regardless of their equipment or location.There are over 3000 Pantone colours today and it continues to grow year on year.
Pantone is also recognized globally for its colour expertise, with the company releasing a Colour Trend Forecasting report on an annual basis. In this report, Pantone identifies the colours which industry professionals can use to tap into consumer trends for the year ahead, as well as the much-anticipatedColour of the Year—a colour or colour duo chosen by Pantone’s colour experts as a particularly on-trend hue for commercial design in the coming months.
