One of the important issues — the position of color in the space. The same color will look completely different on the floor, on the walls or on the ceiling. As an experiment, take a large sample of the color and attach to each to each of the three areas. The most striking difference — on the ceiling.
There color seems to be more gray.
Position of color in the space also greatly affects on its psychological effect. For example, carpet of saturated purple color will look warm, solid, almost king. The same burgundy on the ceiling is likely to be oppressive, intrusive and alarming. So direction is the key issue in determining the psychological effect of color selection.
Each color creates a relatively specific set of psychological associations. These associations are a little different for different people and vary greatly depending on the context and the surrounding colors. Still, it is useful to know some of the key points for a better understanding of the psychological effect produced by each color.
Red — rousing, exciting, stimulating. It is also considered strong and masculine. It is a warm color and it is often perceived passionate. It stands out among the other colors, and it seems a little bit closer. Red is associated with passion and energy.
Pink — soft, pliant, sensual. Since red is changed to pink, the gender association changes from male to female.
Orange — exciting, stimulating, rich. The liveliness and energy of the orange is fantastic, but not as intense as red.
Peach — soft, sunny, warm. Soft peach has feminine qualities.
Yellow — luminous, sunny, cheerful. Soft yellows can seem expansive and open, which increases the feeling of spaciousness. Intense, pure yellow may seem acidic and irritating in a large amount, but unusual and energetic in smaller ones.
Green — soothing, relaxing, calm. Deep greens themselves may be bleak, but acquire freshness and fullness, combined with warmer colors. Clean green is associated with vegetation.
