It’s not too often we think about colour, and I mean really think about it. Forget the unending blue abyss of the sea, or the piercing crimson of a sunset, but the tones and hues of the curtains, rugs and wallpapers surrounding us everyday. There is an undeniable and compelling relationship between colours and the effect they have on mood and feelings.

Multiple studies have found examples where colours can, and do, impact our brains. Colours like yellow have the ability to spark hunger whilst blue acts as a suppressant. Red can increase blood pressure whilst green can lower it. The undeniable relationship we share with colour plays a vital role in swaying thought, changing actions and causing reactions. Home aesthetic is evidently the foundation to well-being, and Warwick Fabrics share their advice on keeping a happy and chic home.
