Making the Right Choice
Whenever we think of redecorating our house, the first task that immediately strikes our mind is to start with the walls. Choosing the right color for your walls is very crucial since colors have a psychological value. Leslie Harrington, a renowned color consultant and expert in residential and industrial decor says, “What color you paint your walls isn’t just a matter of aesthetics. It’s a tool that can be leveraged to affect emotions and behavior.”
The Color Comfort

I always tend to choose green as it is restful to the eye. By combining the refreshing quality of blue and the cheerfulness of yellow one can have green as the most suitable color for any room. The use of green in kitchen, dining and living rooms tend to cool down things. Though a color that encourages unwinding, it has enough warmth to promote comfort and togetherness. If you are looking for a relaxation effect in your home, choose green to relieve stress. In addition, green helps with fertility thus making it a great choice for bedrooms.
The Green Balancy

A color of balance, green strikes the eye in such a way that no adjustment whatsoever is needed. However, though green is recommended as the color perfect for any room, I suggest you restrict it to the bedroom only since you would definitely hate being lethargic in your kitchen room or in your workout room.
Is It All About Psychology?
So does the usage of green only indicate thinking from the perspective of human psychology? Definitely not. From the architectural point of view, I prefer green more because it occupies more space in the visible spectrum of the human eye than most colors. A pervasive color in the ideal world, green is ideal for interior design since we are so used to associating it with nature. Remember running barefoot on the fields wet with the early morning dew or plucking green vegetables and fruits at the peak of their ripeness and eating them away? That is when the sense of freshness arises and brings in a natural feeling of tranquility with a balance of cool and warm undertones.
The Recommended Color
So go for green if you are looking for some peace at home. If not, there are always some other colours to choose from.
