The most calming color palette for your home based on color psychology
If you’ve ever walked into a room that’s had a really jarring effect on you, then you’ll know how visceral the effects of colors can be on our body and mind. Color psychology - the study of how color influences our emotions and decision-making - helps us to understand why. At Lick, we believe that color psychology is fundamental for discovering the colors that help you look after your mental health and wellbeing. That’s why our Lick Studio team has carefully selected 6 of the most calming colors in our paint range, to bring you a palette that will leave you feeling soothed. Take a closer look at the psychology behind our calming color palette and how to style the colors in your home.
The color psychology behind our calming color palette
From airy blues to grounding neutrals, comforting pinks, and nature-inspired greens, each of these six soothing hues features; low saturation, earthy notes and warm undertones. According to color psychology, blue is the most calming color for the mind; pink is the most physically soothing and will leave you feeling swaddled. Green, the color of nature, is the least demanding of all the colors and is very restful on the eye. Whilst ever dependable neutrals help to ground us in the present moment. As Tash Bradley, our Director of Interior design, explains;
