interior desig 1. How color influences our emotional state

Specialists noticed that green hues help with bronchiectasis, stimulate heart muscle contractions, increase mental capacity; red hues stimulate the secretion of digestive tract glands, recover the physical capacity and yet they can lead to over-agitation with some people, and soft brown and blue hues speak about rest and relaxation.

Those people who are easily agitated shouldn't live in a room with red walls, just like a melancholic person should not choose the purple and violet interior.

All colors are divided into warm, cold and neutral hues. Warm hues are red, orange, and all other hues dominated by them. The cold hues are royal blue, sky-blue, and all specter of green-blue and blue-violet tones. Green hues with dominant blue are considered cold, and with dominant yellow or red-considered warm. This is easily traced to nature elements – sunlight, steam, and fire, coolness of water and shade of green leaves. White, grey and black are neutral colors; they diffuse other colors in the color palette.

Colors are also divided into chromatic and achromatic. Chromatic colors are yellow, red, blue and all mixed hues; achromatic colors are grey, white and black. It was noted that warm intense colors seem to be closer, and that is why they are called protrusive. Cold colors, on the contrary, seem more distant, and are called retreating.

Coloring is a combination of all colors in the coloring composition. It is defined by the predominant colors of similar hues. Thus, if the interior is dominated by grey and blue hues, and if there are small elements of yellow, brown and white it is perceived as grey and blue coloring.

Interior design

Color harmony is a consistent combination of colors, favoring their artistic sophistication. There are two types of harmony – nuance and contrast harmony. Nuance harmony lacks strong contrast of colors and their light and saturation, even though small contrast can be present. A state of calm is achieved by balancing color surfaces. This means that large surfaces (walls, ceiling, coverlets, curtains all have demure neutral light hues, and smaller surfaces (some textile elements , ceramics, art glass etc.) are bright, deep in color. Nuance harmony most often can be seen in bedrooms and nurseries, working rooms and rooms of elderly people.

Contrast harmony with collation of bright cold and warm colors can be used in common spaces of 2-5-bedroom apartments and country houses. It is a complex but very interesting task to harmonize the color elements in the living premises (walls, ceilings, floor, decorative textile, furniture etc.) in order to create complete integral assemble. It should be taken into account that contrast harmony can quickly tire the eye and worsen state of mind of a person. This is why bright chromatic colors should be balanced and toned down with achromatic colors (grey, black and white). Thick woolen bright red armchairs require calm balanced background color, which is created by light grey walls, grey fuzzy carpet, light-grey or golden curtains. Certain colors and their combinations can make a person feel happy, sad, anxious or melancholic.

Red color creates elevated mood, but at the same time it is unquiet and turbulent: it annoys and quickly tires the nervous system, decreases working capacity. Influence of this color raises the blood pressure,speeds up respiratory rhythm. That is why it is not recommended for living premises.

Orange color makes for good mood and celebratory ambience.

Yellow color is clear, fresh, stimulates eye sight and nervous system.

Green color of leaves and grass brings out calm and the mood for relaxation. It also lowers the blood pressure and increases the auditory sense and hearing abilities; it is the most favorable for a human being.

Blue color with all its hues gives the impression of open space, depth and cool. It calms the nervous system and improves the working capacity, even more than green color helps to relax the muscle spasms and lower the blood pressure. This is the most favorable color for people with higher than average incline toward nervous anxiety.

Violet color promotes melancholic mood and reflection. However, it was detected that this color not only relaxes, but it slows down the psychological state and therefore, quickly tires people.

Combination of several colors in one ensemble brings out more complex feelings.
