When you were deciding to what colours to paint your house, we know you can spend hours pouring over the decision. What was your main driver in picking that perfect colour which matched your trim? Was it taste, or were you actually picking your personality!
They say that psychology can be reflective of our character, so we looked into it. What does your colour choice say about your personality?
We all know red is going to make your house 'pop'. Red is the colour of passion, desire, love and war. It attracts attention more than any other colour. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate and even raises blood pressure. Red, or magenta, both show that you're not afraid to do something out of the ordinary. It shows you've got a fun side, and even dare to be a wild child. When people walk into your house, they already know that you can have a good time.
Purple has always been associated with nobility, luxury or ambition. This colour exudes wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and a little bit of magic. When you decorate with this colour, visitors will subconsciously feel your good tidings and energy.
This colour is a combination of red and blue, which means it has the calmness of blue and the energy of red. It is one of the most broadest colour belts, as its hues vary from pale lavendar to deep violet, and everything in between.
Resene Grey Suit will give your door the perfect amount of energy.
Yellow tones are the brightest colour of the colour palette. This is the most noticeable of all colours to the human eye. This is a colour of someone who is optimistic and outgoing. It's a colour of creativity, high energy, fun and cheerfulness.
Try Dulux Sundaze for a more mellow yellow, while Resene Wild Thing has just the right amount of sunshine to light up your exterior.
Blue is associated with intelligence, productivity, and mental clarity. This is a colour for both study and work. It has been shown to slow heart rate and breathing, as well! Blue evokes a feeling of trust and peace, which is great because you want your guests to feel comfortable in your home.
Resene A B Sea CC or Dulux Timeless Classics Breton Blue Matt are good choices for blues!
Never mind the old saying, 'green with envy' – this colour now gives off a feeling of harmony, reports the Washington Post. From the moment people walk in the door, this will make any friendly get-together start on the right foot.
Resene Limerick is a bold, fun green that will invite in your guests.
And finally, the moment you black door owners have been waiting for. The black door is nothing more than a sign of your glamour. You probably have a more serious side, notes Realtor.com, but black means you're ready for every occasion. It's not at all off-putting – rather this dark tone says you're safe here to your guests.
Resene All Black in a high gloss finish gives your home that sophisticated yet safe feeling.
Thanks for getting the house finished before Christmas. The weather was certainly against you at times! We always enjoy having Ron, Arthur, Justin etc. at either home on either job.Craig and Maureen
Very many thanks to you and Ron and John. Those guys did a great job and I would recommend Mitchell Decorators to everyone. Everyone who comes here remarks on the job, and now that I have all the pictures in place, my home looks just great.Daphne
Thank you so much for your patience and kindness over the past 18 months. You have, with your generous and gracious attitude, been one of my pillars of strength through a difficult time.Peter
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over many years at Hohepa. When former Chair John Morrissey suggested that I meet up with you and consider using your services, I was somewhat reserved on the matter. However, seeing that John had used you to build his own home, and to effect renovations and repairs at his own factory, I thought it wise to see his suggestion through, and at least to meet with you. I can now describe the meeting as quite fortuitous for Hohepa, as within a few years we were rocked by the earthquakes and there was major work to be carried out to get both sites up and running again. With the massive additional workload that this brought, I can honestly say that I wouldn't have been able to cope without your help and support through those difficult times. The earthquake repairs were, at times, virtually a full time job.Raymond Eberhard
Cookie Time have used Mitchell Decorators on a number of office painting jobs and always had great service. The staff are always happy to help and leave the work area clean and tidy. There have never been any problems with working odd hours or over a week end.Dean Gibbs
