Have you noticed why some places feel calm, happy, sometimes dull or even depressing?
Color plays a vital role as we design a space, there is a note and an emotion every color throws out.
These emotions are playful, meaning, one can change their effect by playing the colors well, but on the whole there’s a certain room, a certain direction where one should or shouldn’t use a particular color.
If you’re repainting your house, or designing a new one and wonder which paint box is to be opened where, this is the post you want to read!
Based on Vastu, some directions are advised for and against some colors to avoid disrupting the positive nature of the space,
*THE COLORS IN GREEN ARE ADVISABLE, THE ONES IN RED ARE NOT ADISABLE
What each color emits, which rooms you could use it in and whats the energy flow you could expect, I have accumulated all the information and made a quick guide for you 🙂

Red color also stimulates the appetite and helps build conversation.
Use red in:

Balancing the usage of red is very important, don’t overdo it.
