Having the right hue in your home can make all the difference. It can make your home more enjoyable as well as quicker and easier to decorate or revamp a space. It’s just like colour psychology which tends to reflect who we are through our colour choices.

Colour psychology is the study of hues as a determinant of human behaviour. Colour influences perceptions such as the taste of food or enhances a feeling. For example, red is the colour of energy, passion, action, ambition and determination. Whereas yellow is the colour of the mind and the intellect.

Every colour has a meaning and a vibe behind it and it’s up to the dweller to figure out what works and doesn’t for them.

Once the colour palette has been created, every decorative decision should flow a lot easier.

According to Emirati retailer 2XL Furniture & Home Décor Company, which features a very classic and French-inspired range of products, people should consider changing up their colour palettes for winter and incorporating darker and richer tones.

Brown infuses a space with warmth and is a great equaliser, exuding timeless elegance in interiors.

Amit Yadav, head of marketing, said: “Mixing different textures and colours can instantly transform an area. Brown furniture and accessories give any space a sense of richness and personality. When used in contrast with lighter or brighter shades such as beige, cream, grey, powder blue, orange, yellow, gold or purple it provides a lot of depth and style. Moreover, it is timeless and durable as well as easy to live with.”

Brown signifies the colour of earth, wood, stone, wholesomeness, reliability, elegance, security, healing and home. It also symbolises stability, warmth and honesty. It is a natural, neutral colour that is typically associated with the seasons of fall and winter.
