The choice of color
Your choice of color is a major component that describes how you experience the world around you. In the same vein, the color of a design also has certain effects on you, as every color that you see and experience affects your mood. For example, the color of your space wallpaper, if black can be an assertion of power.
Certain colors and what they symbolize include (but are not limited to) the following:
Red: associated with warming up spaces, to symbolize passion and power and make situations feel more intimate.
Yellow: associated with creation, creativity, and happiness. Used to bring and create a peaceful and relaxing environment.
Green: has soothing properties. It eases movement between doors among other things.
It is not only the color of a design that affects and alters a person’s mood. Even the way the design is arranged affects and influences a person. An ordered arrangement can calm and soothe somebody with a lot of inner turmoil while a chaotic arrangement can lead to the calmest of persons feeling restless, fidgety and impatient. In essence, not only colors but also their arrangement have their own impact on our mood.
Interior designs and space wallpapers, for example, are evaluated based on certain criteria, which include: function, symbolism, sign and the likes all of which have their own effect on a person’s mindset.
The presence of space creates the illusion of profusion. When a design appears spacious, then it will seem to be more impressive.
Symbolism of objects
In interior designs, one thing that seems to change people’s mindset is the amount of importance appropriated to certain aspects of their home, or what a particular work symbolizes. A design can be attached to something positive, for instance, a particular wallpaper in a certain color in a room where a woman gave birth can come to symbolize and represent positivity to such a person. This means that every time he experiences such a design, he thinks positive thoughts.
