Designer Insights

Change your mood with colour

Our homes are our sanctuaries. They should be the one place where you can feel positive, relaxed and happy. This is why when you open any house magazine; you will find interior design articles on the theme of colour. Why? Because they play an integral role in interior design by directly affecting our moods and the way we feel.

While soft furnishings such as throws and pillows and of course wall colour are still the dominant element that utilises colour to impact mood, timber shutters are becoming ever more popular, not just as a window treatment, but are seen as central pieces, much like we would view a furniture piece or feature wall. Because timber shutters can be customised to any colour you wish, they are the perfect addition to your interior to transform your home and your mood.

“Whether it's on a pair of pillows, the back of a bookshelf, the floor or the ceiling, a splash of unexpected colour transforms any space from boring to breathtaking.”
- Jen Derose, HouseBeautiful

Recognised and admired for their clean lines and high value appeal, a timber shutter can be a design anchor to transform your living space. Made from premium grade 100% timber, they are painted with high quality polyurethane paint. Built to last, painted timber shutters are an excellent starting point to bring colour and mood to your interior.






So what mood can you achieve with a painted timber shutter?

From calming blues and passionate reds to passive neutrals, it all depends on what mood you want your interior to reflect.

“Scientists and researchers have long known colours affect us mentally and physically…. blue rooms reduce blood pressure and enhance relaxation… even if a person tries to be angry or aggressive in the presence of pink, he can't… the heart muscles can't race fast enough. It's a tranquillising colour.”
- Olivia Richardson, body+soul Magazine 2013

Consider bright vibrant colours for children’s rooms or the family rumpus room to liven the atmosphere. Pastel colours in pink or purples for bedrooms create a calm relaxed mood. Blues are also perfect for creating calmed relaxed environments, great in bathrooms or kitchens.

Of course you may just wish for the clean, sophisticated look and opt for the classic white plantation shutter, which is always a favourite. With the timber shutters being highly customisable, you are only limited by your imagination. For more information on timber shutters, click here.
