Color psychology

Color is a powerful tool in design—one that can transform your space into a creative haven or a relaxing retreat. From bold accent walls to rich floors to bright accessories, there are endless ways to set the mood throughout the home.

Brown: This earthy tone can help you slow down and chill out at home. It offers a warm richness and a nice contrast to lighter tones, without the harshness of the color black. Brown is one of the most popular, if not the most popular, color choices for the floor. It sets a neutral canvas for the rest of the space and mimics the outdoor environment.  From espresso to hazelnut, there’s a high probability that brown will make you want to curl up and unwind.


Green: There’s a reason the color green is associated with nature. From grass stains to springtime sprouts, this color is found nearly anywhere outdoors and can inspire feelings of growth and renewal. Living walls have become popular in recent years, which literally bring the outdoors in by covering vertical spaces with moss, succulents or ivy. Pillows and furniture make great green accents for a more subtle approach.


Gray: Gray is a calm, cool and sophisticated color. Depending on the application, it is perfectly suited for nearly any design style—from Modern to Organic & Natural. A gray wood grain floor can give the laid back coastal sensation of driftwood, while a dark charcoal wall creates an elegant anchor for brighter colors in the room. With more than 50 shades of Beauflor flooring options, we bet you’ll find at least one to love.


Orange: Depending on the hue, orange can either energize a room or create an earthy atmosphere. Bright pops of this citrusy color will spark a fun, creative environment. 
A terracotta tone will establish a more peaceful sensation. This versatile color can fit any personal style or preference, so extend orange beyond Halloween and have fun experimenting with its many moods.


Pink: This playful color is most often associated with femininity. While it makes an ideal choice for a children’s room or nursery, it can be dressed up when you choose more mature variation like magenta, peony or rose. 
Pink pairs perfectly with rich chocolate or sophisticated grays, which will help create a romantic mood. For a little girl’s room, well, you may just want to go all out with the cheery, cotton candy color. 


Blue: Ah, the calm and tranquility you can conjure when you choose blue as your primary color. Prepare to sigh a breath of relief when you enter your sitting room or powder blue powder room. 
A softer shade is ideal for tight spaces that you want to expand, as the pale blue will create an airy open feeling. Darker tints can add drama or intrigue to a room and are well complemented by metallics.
