Colour Psychology: Red... What Does It Mean for an Interior Space?

by Eden Davies

Red is a powerful colour, it tends to grab our attention first. Its effect is physical, it stimulates us giving us the impression that time is going faster than it is. Red is strong and basic, very stimulating and lively. At the same time, it can be perceived as demanding and aggressive.

The colour red has the potential to make a space look smaller.

Studies have shown that red does not just affect our mood but our productivity as well. Red has been shown to increase the heart rate, blood flow, and also stimulate emotion and passion. If there is something in the interior environment that you want to attract attention to then paint it red.
