  • Typically relieving stress and anxiety, the colour blue can also seems as a cooler tone to some, so be sure to warm the colour down using darker shades as well.

Yellow tones

  • Green hues such as seafoam promote energy and liveliness.

  • Soft and warm greens can promote balance and harmony.

  • A yellowish mossy shade is a good colour to pair with soft greens because it reflects optimism, much like sunshine on a beautiful day. Greens and yellows would be a great interior design idea if you wanted to paint the interior of a gym. These colours will fill the room with energy, strength, and motivation.

Purple tone

  • Light purple and lavender shades give off a spiritual vibe and enhance the feeling of wisdom. Surrounding yourself with deeper shades of purple will promote creativity in yourself as well.

  • Choosing a deep purple for an accent wall will dictate the feeling of royalty and appreciation for your clients who come and go at your day spa or salon

Pastel tone
