How Paint Colors Can Help You Ease Pandemic Anxiety


March 11: Adapting living spaces to support well-being has become a priority with the prolonged pandemic. Color psychology says that different colors have a different impact on our emotions and behavior. There are certain ways in which colors complement each other to provide a soothing effect. Understanding which colors work together is therefore crucial when choosing a palette for your home. Confused about what colors go together to ease pandemic anxiety? No problem. Simply contact experts to figure it all out with remote color consulting on the Berger Paints Express Painting mobile app.

In the meantime, here’s a basic understanding of how paint colors can help calm anxiety and stress.

Colors for better sleep

Deep sleep clears our brain of toxins, which aids memory, creative thinking, and mood stabilization. Thus, the bedroom is one of the most crucial places in the house for feeling calm. This is why blue wall paint colors are so popular for this space. Create a serene place for your body to feel at ease while reducing tension by combining soothing light blue with cool sage.

For a bolder paint color choice, deep blue also provides a soothing effect, making your interior paint design as soothing as a calm sea. While you’re confined to your home, consider painting an accent wall in your bedroom to calm your nerves and get a better night’s sleep. You can also paint the ceiling a deep blue and the walls a lighter shade for a more personal vibe.

back to nature

There is a whole branch of psychology devoted to “restorative environments”, which speaks to the popular practice of forest bathing. Shinrin-Yoku or “forest bathing” is a Japanese term that refers to a walk in the woods. Spending time in a natural environment provides neuropsychological benefits, lowering cortisol levels and boosting the immune system.

Symbolically, bringing a bold green hue into our home can achieve the same effect, replacing stress with hope. The forest is painted a dazzling, flamboyant green by thousands of plant species. Give your bathroom a tropical feel with a vibrant green, like Porcelain, 4P0103, while bringing a sophisticated vibe to your dining room with an Essence Teal, 4P0266.

Bright colors to cheer up

People are looking for new ways to energize where they spend the most time. Painting a room with brighter, uplifting colors can do just that. A mood-boosting house color scheme for interiors will typically combine energizing colors with grounded neutrals to encourage hope and courage. This can foster positive feelings of hope. For example, when you choose red to paint an accent wall, it can evoke feelings of excitement. Lift the spirits with a crimson accent wall either in your kitchen, to stimulate the appetite, or in your living room, to encourage social interaction.

Enhance the visual appeal of the crimson wall by contacting the painting service at Peintures Berger. Professional painters will add texture to the accent wall with stylish designer finishes. The Silver Fire pattern created with Silk Illusions Non Metallic, for example, will add punch to the crimson wall while giving it a high shine.

positive energy

The ancient Chinese art of feng shui helps achieve a balance between the five elements of nature (fire, water, earth, wood, and metal) to improve your mental well-being. Color is a type of energy used in feng shui to move visible and invisible energies in our homes.

Each of the five elements is tied to distinct colors and attributes. Those related to the water and earth elements tend to reduce anxiety. Blue and black, which are associated with water, enhance inner strength by helping us focus, contemplate, meditate, and manage creative endeavors. Painting the front door midnight blue and updating the trim and knobs to black will be a powerful way to invite the element of water into your home.

Every hue, from white to black and everything in between, impacts how you think, feel and react, according to color theory. You can achieve the interior finish you desire for your home by simply choosing the right paint colors. Berger Paints Express painting services can help make this journey easier with expert advice.
