Colour Theory in Design

Colour is a visual language. Evoking strong, yet unconscious effects on you and people in a space. Influencing the way you and guests feel. As you design a space you can use colours and light to set a desired ambience, mood and style.

Warm colours like oranges and reds can stimulate appetite and make a good choice for dining rooms. It’s a great choice for restaurants. This trick has been used for years to entice crowds.

Fresh tones such in blues and greens are a lovely choice for rooms with relaxation in mind. Perfect in living rooms and bedrooms.

Though colours can stimulate, relax, or energise. Preference is personal, feel free to express some alchemy. By mixing and combining colours for a fantastic effect.

What’s incredible is the unique colours and as glass has a smooth, translucent texture it is less saturated, as light shines through.
