There have been an infinite number of studies into the application and effects of colour use. After all, colours can be as powerful as words, and can even have an effect on human well-being. Fortunately, there are useful tools and guidelines that can support you as a designer or architect in your design process.
In our most recent webinar, Carola Seybold, Head of Global Key Account Management at PANTONE®, and Karen Haller, Leading Global Expert in the field of Behavioural Colour and Design Psychology, discuss the importance of colour considerations in the process of creating effective colour schemes for residential and commercial spaces.
Karen and Carola elaborate on trend forecasts, external influences, personal colour preferences, applied colour psychology and human-centred design.
‘Up to 85% of our purchasing decisions are based on colour. Whether it’s a product or people going into cafes or restaurants, buying anything for the home: colour is the main driver. […] Colour makes us feel something and creates that all important emotional connection.’
