Colours can affect our mood without us even realising, have you ever noticed when you walk into a hotel the walls are usually muted, neutral colours? We’ve compiled a list of colours and how they might affect the way we feel:

Blue

Blue is a universally liked colour, it represents serenity and calmness and is usually the best choice for bedrooms and bathrooms. Usually blue is balanced with other colours in a hotel so it doesn’t seem cold or sad.

White

White is used as a backdrop or balancing element for more vivid centrepieces. It can make us feel calm and pure, whilst also making the room seem a lot more spacious and clean. White is used a large amount in hotels, some could see it as bland but with the right décor it can create an appealing aesthetic.

Pink
