The entrance to your home is a first impression, a welcome, and a foretaste of home all in one. In a way, it sets the tone for your lives inside the house, and can have a huge effect-positive or negative on your moods and perceptions.

Every colour has a unique vibration all of its own, and this can significantly affect how you feel in a room or house. You can use the colours according to its characteristics.
Green colour is very restful but combines with an energizing quality. Green brings balance and harmony, healing, and rejuvenation to a room, and can be used as a calming place for people who are troubled or in need of refreshment.
Red colour is a powerful and stimulating colour. It will energize, inspire activity and movement. It can also be exhausting and overpowering, and stressful for those who are anxious.
Pink is less demanding. Choosing a red bedroom would not be restful, although some red can be used to enhance sensuality.
Orange will encourage happy, joyful, social gatherings. While an orange dining room or family room can stimulate the appetite, it is a great choice for such gathering places. Orange enhances parties. Communication, positive feelings, and general good cheer.
Yellow rooms inspire intellectual clarity, organization, clear headed articulate thinking, and happy energy. Yellow is considered a colour for the logical left side of the brain. Yellow is also very bright and somewhat energizing, so one needs to choose its placement with care. A yellow office might be intellectually beneficial, but not allow restful downtime, for example, so one might want to choose to include yellow accents instead of painting each wall yellow.
Blue can be often chosen for bedrooms and meditation rooms because its cool energy is very calming, restful, peaceful, and spiritual. Blue helps inspire a quiet meditative quality, and colour therapy with blue has been found to reduce blood pressure. Blue is also useful to soothe one to sleep.
Purple is very comforting, protective, spiritual, and calming. It is a rich colour, which inspires faith, intuition and trust. Entire rooms painted purple could be overpowering, but a light violet could provide a very healing and calming atmosphere.
White rooms work anywhere combined with accent colours. White is very purifying, uplifting and cleansing, although too much white can reflect a sterile, isolating quality. White ceilings are recommended because they reflect light and brighten any room.
