WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER BEFORE DECORATING WITH THE COLOUR RED

Many people do not realize that colour can have a huge impact on how they feel. During times of healing, the colour red may OR may not be the best choice. Here are some things about the colour red that you may not know.

  • RED brings warmth, energy, and stimulation, and therefore is good for fatigue, colds, chilly and passive people.
  • RED energizes heart and blood circulation. It builds up the blood and increases low blood pressure.
  • RED energizes your organs and all of the five senses: hearing, smell, taste, vision, and touch.

Never treat cancer with red because this color will stimulate cell growth!

HOW THE COLOUR RED RESONATES WITH ME

When I think of red, I think of the Canadian flag, Christmas, poinsettias, geraniums, roses, apples, strawberries, Valentine’s Day, coca cola labels, fire, blood and so much more.

I LOVE HOW IT MAKES ME FEEL

It is on the warm side of the colour wheel. I don’t know what it is about red but when it comes to decorating it is another one of my favorite colours.  Whether a room is painted red, you do an accent wall or accessorize with it, you can’t go wrong. Red is just one of those colours that makes you go, wow!

RED IS A PASSIONATE AND ELEGANT COLOUR.

– HERE’S HOW I HAVE USED IT FOR MY CLIENTS;

If you’ve read my posts on Home Healing Hues, you will see that we posted Benjamin Moore’s new colour for 2018. It is Caliente AF-290. It is a ruby colour, and it is gorgeous. I have decorated kitchens, dining rooms, family rooms and powder rooms in red and one of my favorites is painting a front door red because I find it very welcoming. It is also a great colour to use in the garden and when making flower arrangements. It works in multiple areas and can be combined with yellow, white, black, grey, green and blue.

I USE THE COLOUR RED FOR DECORATING, BUT IT WOULDN’T BE MY FIRST CLOTHING CHOICE.

As for wearing red, I am out of my comfort zone because I find it to be a bright colour that makes me stand out. It is funny when you think about it, I am so uncomfortable just wearing a red sweater, blouse, red lipstick or having a manicure and pedicure done in red nail polish but I can sit in a red room and feel totally comfortable.
