Warm Up Your Home for The Holiday Season
Christmas Season is just around the corner and it’s time to start warming up your home to be cozy and inviting, getting you and your guests through the cold winter weather. Christmas decorations always bring joy, and shopping for them is always fun, but let’s be honest – it’s easy to overdo it with the color red!
Why is that bad?
When decorating your home, it’s important to choose the right colors to set the right mood. Psychologists have proven that the color red, speeds up our heart rate and raises our blood pressure to the extent that too much of it is actually harmful to people with high blood pressure. Moreover, did you notice that most fast food restaurants choose Red as their primary color? That’s because with the fast heart rate comes a big appetite! Yes, color is THAT important.
With this information in mind, we would naturally recommend for you to use the red color around the kitchen and dining areas; but lower its intensity in areas where you want to focus and relax, like the home office, bedrooms, and living areas.
The good news is that Green, the second favorite holiday color, is great for those other areas!
Green has the opposite effect on the human body. It slows down the heart rate and is considered the most calming color for the eye, especially when used as the main color for decorating. It promotes comfort and encourages socializing and unwinding. It’s a great color to consider when decorating a living room, a family room or even an office space!
To complete your home’s overall warm look, use deep tones of orange and yellow to make your home more warming and welcoming in the winter.
Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones!
