Colour has the ability to enable us to connect with many feelings or memories in our lives. The way we use colour in our homes greatly depends on our preferences of one colour over another. This may be psychological or even stem from life experiences we have had. Further, the tone of colour used can either enhance or deflect the environment in which it is used.
Consider what feelings or emotions a classroom would evoke should it be decorated in dark, moody colours instead of light, playful ones?. Every space inhabited by humans has certain expectations and functions and the use of colours and their tones should reflect these. This is why it is paramount that many questions be raised to the client before deciding on any colour scheme.
