What’s the first thing you notice when you walk into a new room? The colors. It’s because our brains are truly amazing. They pick up on thousands of tiny details per second, most of which we aren’t even consciously aware. We then form perceptions based on these details and often act accordingly. Color gives our brain plenty of information to process. When you really think about, our interior design choices say a lot about who we are as people. Every home needs the same basic elements: floor coverings, furniture and lighting. As much as interior design is about how a room looks visually, it’s also about creating an overall tone for the space. The majority of us would prefer that our bedrooms have a calming feel to them so that we can get a good night’s rest. Conversely, our dining rooms and other spaces where we do most of our entertaining should feel lively. Take a look at some of the best colorful interior design ideas and get inspired!
