Have a lovely Guest Post for you today from Arcadian Lighting.
The colors we use in our interior spaces can energize, calm or renew us. Painting your room in red will create a very different mood or feeling than painting the same space in blue. Careful consideration should be given to colors used in our homes when trying to achieve a certain feeling. Color can change the energy to suit the room’s purpose.
We’ve selected interior colors to both energize and renew based on the principles of Feng Shui. While you may not be familiar with the elements associated with the colors on the color wheel, you can easily see that warm, bright colors energize; while cool, soft colors renew our energy. Also give special attention to lighting fixtures as they can play a part in the mood of a room.

Red accents in the throw, accent chair, and pillow give energy to the space. The orange pendant lights on each side complements the overall design of the bedroom.

This all pink bedroom is humming with energy but not in a jarring way. The soft glow from the table lamps also give an energizing glow.

This soft sea blue on the walls is quite calming, while the earth tones (Wood Elements) ground the space. The wall sconces next to the bed adds a soft glow to the relaxing and peaceful space.

Love the soothing color combination of blues, green, purple and brown. Wood Element colors include browns and greens that nourish but also provide energy for vitality and growth.
The soft lichen green of the walls is a soothing, calm color.

Even when a room is decorated in busy patterns, soft blues paired with white and tan create a soothing environment.

Clearly this is an energetic space with a lot of different colors – pinks, red, yellow and green. It would feel very different if the colors were swapped for darker hues of browns and greens. The colors definitely mesh well together and made the space looks fun without being too whimsical.
