Colour Psychology in Interior Design: Black

27th December 2021

Colours are believed to be linked to our feelings and emotions. Different hues, tones, and shades evoke specific feelings and perceptions (unconsciously), influencing judgments, decisions, and behaviour. Therefore, choosing colour schemes based on your personality and desires is paramount to guarantee you’ll feel comfortable and relaxed in your home or workplace.

Aside from colours, furniture, decorative pieces, lights, fixtures and other elements, all play an important role in the psyche of living space. Let’s dive in one of the most popular and widely used colours, black.

Black - Neutral, Powerful, Sophisticated

Shade of black is the absence of colour. It is the go-to colour of all time in all aspects of life. Like in fashion, when you do not know what to wear you simply opt for black for a fail-safe choice. In interior design, black makes an excellent addition especially in the kitchen, living room, dining area and bathroom. It gives an effortlessly timeless appeal, elegant and powerful, that is ready to be enhanced with any accent colour.
