Abstract

Interior design has the ability to influence people’s emotions and behavior. It has the potential to evoke positive feelings of comfort and safety through the use of colors, fabrics, and textures. As designers, we can use color psychology to inflict different emotions. Laconia Community Center focuses on youth development and socialization. Vibrant shades such as yellow, orange, and green inspire socializing and communicating, while icy blue and green evoke a calming sense. Through research and selective color usage, color has the power to influence how users feel inside the space and will affect their mood while they participate in different types of activities. The picture below is the Dream Scape home, and it uses warmer shades of color to inspire relaxation and boost the sense of comfort. Careful color consideration will aid in the final aesthetic to support the overall design concept of these two projects.
