Emotions that colors convey

When it comes to decorating, the most important thing is to make an impression. Whether it is to inspire relaxation, elegance or well-being, colors can help convey messages and emotions unique to each one and change the look of your room. The question is, how do you choose?


Red has contradictory meanings. It can signify love, passion and sensuality as well as danger, prohibition and anger. However, the first themes are much more used to describe this color’s meaning and it is even one of the three colors used to represent love on Valentine’s Day. When decorating, it brings character to the room and is often considered as audacious. Red candles can bring a vibrant touch to your décor and accompany your romantic nights throughout the year. Red harmonizes perfectly with gold, silver as well as pink and white.

Like yellow, orange is a bright and warm color that reinvigorates us. It brings out energy and dynamism as well as stimulating our emotions and encourage movement.
