Welcome to our colourful world of stationery. Colours have a remarkable ability to evoke a range of emotions within us. From stimulating and energising to calming and soothing. What better way to harness the power of colour than infusing it into your workplace to boost productivity?
Now, let's delve into the art of choosing palettes. Each of us has our preference for different hues, and finding an aesthetic that resonates with you can bring joy at any age.
Have you ever wondered how colours influence our feelings and decisions? Colour psychology reveals the profound impact colours have on us. Our perception of colour is influenced by our minds and collective cultures, making it a truly subjective experience.
Being in a yellow room could make some people feel on edge, while the colour blue can induce a sense of calm and relaxation? Artists and interior designers have long recognised the power of colours influence on the mood. As Pablo Picasso once said, "Colours, like features, follow the changes of the emotions."
Ancient cultures such as the Egyptians and Chinese practised chromotherapy, using colours to heal and restore balance. This practice, also known as light therapy or coli-urology, acknowledges the therapeutic potential of colours.
While perceptions of colour may vary, certain colour effects have universal meanings that transcend cultural boundaries.
Here are some examples:
- Red - Passion, energy, excitement, and love
- Pink - Softness, reserve, calm, romance, and earthiness
- Purple - Mystery, nobility, inspiration and creativity
- Blue - Wisdom, calm, hope, reason, and peace
- Green- Nature, growth, security and freshness
- Yellow - Happiness, hope, joy, and danger
- Orange - warmth, kindness, joy, and creativity.
- Brown - Dependability, warmth, security, and earthiness
- Black - Nobility, mystery, and power
However, it's important to note that the colour effects are not absolute. Experts have discovered that individual, cultural, and situational factors can influence how colour impacts our emotions and actions. So, when choosing your preferred palette, if you feel the benefits, it's a win-win situation. While we await more scientific research to understand colour psychology better, exploring the world of colours and finding what resonates with you is an exciting and enjoyable journey.
