Did you know that colors have an impact on our state of mind? The millennial art of feng-shui understood this well and many scientific studies have since proven it. It is therefore tempting to take advantage of the virtues of each color to distribute them judiciously in the house. So the warm and vivid colors such as red, orange, or yellow are very stimulating. They are particularly suitable for passage or high activity rooms. Cold colors such as blue, green, and purple have a relaxing effect and will be suitable for creating a zen and cozy atmosphere in a restroom for example. The whites, beige, gray, brown, black offer comfort and will be perfect in a relaxing room.

We recommend that you use strong and vivid colors sparingly. For example, set them aside for a single section of a wall in a room. For a harmonious result, you can combine them with neutral colors that will enhance them (white, beige gray). Another good idea not to get bored: apply them in the passage rooms in which you only stay a few moments (color, entrance hall, WC…).
And to better boost your mood, add a TV for your room (See tv under 200 for inexpensive but quality TV sets).
