Electric is a colour palette that combines an array of cold colours in muted hues, giving you the opportunity to keep your home colourful, but much more relaxing and embracing. So, sit back, unwind, and dare yourself to be surrounded by rich shades that make your house feel like a home.
While the magic of artificial lighting keeps your home from getting visibly darker in the colder seasons, taking a cue from nature’s progression is known to be a good go-to when it comes to interior design tips.
In the crisp months, the electric colours we have come to known become dimmer, less saturated, less energetic – and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
Usually, when one thinks ‘electric’ in regards to colour, high saturated cold colours come to mind. In fact, electric blue – a shade with 100% saturation – is one of the most iconic colours in popular culture, and it has become the inspiration for various songs, movies and other art pieces.
However, when our interior surroundings do not match those on the exterior, some cognitive dissonance can occur. Fall and Winter are undeniably enchanting, but nevertheless moody seasons.
As the sun dims, giving centre stage to dark clouds, colours in nature no longer appear as bright as they did in the Summer – as such, high energy shades would not make much sense, cognitively speaking, in décor. Instead, these colours seem to acquire a deep, oddly comforting and refreshing feel, that longs to be replicated.
