The Meanings of Colour

the meanings of colours-banner-new

Colour is more than just visually stimulating. Colour has layers of meanings, many of which are closely linked to our emotions making it a natural tool for expressing a mood. Whether in the way we decorate a room, what we choose to wear or which colour we choose as our favourite, colour communicates a message.

The meanings we give colour are based on many things including our culture, age, and personal experiences but I thought it would be fun to share some of the words and feelings most often associated with each colour. Next time you are drawn to a particular colour, think about what it is saying to you.
