A Calming and Nurturing Colour.

After unveiling some splendid new wallpaper books,  it was a striking pink wallpaper that caught my eye…..and prompted a little information on this glorious colour.

As many of you are aware, colour can evoke certain feelings and these colour emotions as I like to call them are scientifically proven, and not just some wishy washy ideals.

No pressure on the interior designer at all, but if the colour scheme specified by a designer to client is  incredibly wrong the result could  be disastrous –  thankfully colour psychology is something we are taught in-depth during design school, and an area that many of us thoroughly enjoy continued learning.

PINK is one of the most wonderful colours to enhance our psyche, soothe, heal and create a relaxed calm in us all. It is proven that pink can alleviate feelings of anger, aggression, resentment, abandonment and neglect. It is a sign of hope, a positive color inspiring warm and comforting feelings, a sense that everything will be okay.

Interestingly, pink is the only tint of a primary colour with a name of its own, and not only is it a wonderful interior colour to play with, it also looks smashing on a pair of lips:  sure to brighten anyone’s day. Here is my selection of gorgeous PINK wallpapers and fabrics – all available at Natural Habitat Interiors and Design. Pop in and borrow a sample or three.
