Preference for: yellow
Balancing colours: beige, brown

People who prefer yellow are brave about exploring new things and think outside the box. They don’t want to be bound, can be childlike and sometimes lack a sense of security. Bright yellow shines like the sun, but warm neutrals such as beige, brown or wood tones create a safe ambience for enjoying life.

 

Optimistic and positive

Preference for: red, orange
Balancing colours: blue, green

People who prefer warm colors such as red and orange are full of passion and vitality. They are capable of taking action but tend to be emotional. Matching red and orange with blue and green can highlight the active and positive characteristics of the homeowner and calm irritable and anxious emotions. Blue and green have the effect of relieving fatigue and stress but can generate lonely feelings. They also decrease the appetite, so they would be better for a bedroom than a kitchen or dining room.

 

Quiet, amiable and humble

Preference for: grey, beige
Balancing colours: red, orange

People who prefer grey are rational. They tend to be well-educated and have a great work ethic, however, they are prone to worry too much and can be closed off. Adding positive warm colours such as red, yellow and orange can help them let go of cautiousness so they can meet challenges in a more positive and carefree mood.

 

Sensitive and aesthetic
