Romantic Color Schemes
Joey Lewitin


 

Color has a very strong and subtle effect on our minds. Just looking at colors can evoke powerful emotions in us. By carefully selecting the colors you use in the decoration of your bedroom, you can influence the undercurrents of mood in the space

 

Red is a very inspirational color that can evoke passion and desire. Adding a red comforter or some red pillows to your bed can sometimes serve to light a flame in your relationships. However, you should be careful not to let the fire get out of control. Red also evokes aggressiveness and anger. Those prone to such traits should avoid this color, especially in the bedroom.

 

Blues and greens are calming, intimate colors. Their use in a room may serve to create a feeling of ease. Green is also historically a color associated with fertility and marriage. In this way it may have a powerful potential to inspire romance in the collective unconscious of a person.

 

Some colors you will probably want to avoid in an intimate bedroom are white, grey, yellow, and pink. These colors can be used as accents, but their over use may lead to certain side effects that you would want to avoid. White and grey are considered to be very plain colors, and their predominance can create an almost trance like state for people in a room. Yellow in large doses can irritate eyes and cause nervousness. Pink will probably have a slightly beneficial effect subconsciously. Generally pink causes people to feel calmer, happier, and more romantic at a deep psychological level. However, due to societal associations this color has been very heavily tied in to females. This may cause a male in a relationship to feel uncomfortable in a room where this color is dominant. These are, of course, only loose guidelines, and you should refer to your own taste when making any decisions on which colors to choose in a setting.
