Color Palette: Using Analogous Colors to Shape Mood

Whether we are aware of it or not the colors we use in our home can shape the mood of the room, and ultimately our own moods.  There isn’t a right or wrong way to use color (in my own opinion), but be aware of the mood you want to create in a room and pick colors accordingly.

The analogous color palette in the Room of the Week, is created using various shades of blue, green and purple.  The purple and most of the blue tones used are soft and clear and cool creating a very serene space, but there is that jolt of rejuvenating turquoise that adds just a touch of excitement to the space.

As you scroll through the rooms below pay attention to your emotional response to the color palette.  Each of the color palettes are formed using analogous colors, and depending on the saturation of the colors they can create very diverse moods.

Did you identify with one of the color palettes over another?

Did you feel a different emotional response to each palette?
