You probably have lots of ideas about home decoration based on color, but the colors you choose might affect you more than you realize. Humans have 5 senses that affect us to differing extents: - Vision 75%- Hearing 13%- Touch 6%- Taste 3%- Smell 3% As you can see, vision matters most for building or home design for good mental health, which encompasses vision, hearing, touch, and smell (while taste plays no role). Color in home decorations or furniture can directly affect your feelings. Color psychology influences perception, mood and feelings, behavior, and creates familiarity and a personal preference, which can become a habit. Let’s look at 11 colors and their influence on perception, mood and feelings, and behavior, and see how they can boost mental well-being.
