We often decorate our houses without giving importance to the colors and the sensations that they can transmit to us. Nowadays, colors aren’t just a small note with the simple purpose of coloring walls and furniture, moving to another level.

Many studies of color psychology show that it is, in addition to its functional side, having a great impact on our lives by the energy that emanates.

 But after all, what colors should you use? Where, how and why? The choice of a color for a particular division should be considered not only to match with the rest of the decor, or by the personal taste of the person who use the space, but also for the emotions and energy they transmit.

 According to Feng Shui, colors play a fundamental role in any space, and so you should choose it carefully, depending on the location and the circumstances in which they are used. In addition to the location of the house and each room and how each decorative element is positioned in each area, the colors are also a very important landmark that can even transform your life and how you feel.

 And because our home is our refuge, it is very important that we take good care of it because we are, consequently, taking good care of ourselves.

 If you want to transform your home, think about each of your divisions and the emotions you want to feel in each one of them.
