What makes us happy? For Mermaids, it’s our happy color boxes by the sea. We love these color tips from House Beautiful and we can vouch for the magic they create! It’s been loads of fun to see just how colors make our lives better! We put our cottages to the color test. How well do you think we did?
This is the color to use when you need to relax. Wear or surround yourself with it if you have difficulty sleeping, dreaming, or meditating. Try an aqua duvet, vase or painted floor.
This vibrant hue reduces self-consciousness and allows you to express yourself with confidence. Use it in your home when you want to feel younger. It is the color of laughter and celebration. Add an orange mouse pad to your office, an accent wall to your child’s room, or just a bordered notecard on a side table.
It dissolves tension and promotes tranquility. Light blue especially brings ease into home and harmony into relationships. Wearing or surrounding yourself with it helps calm aggressive tendencies and eliminates discord. Try a light blue headboard, flowy drapes or painted ceiling.
Gentle and soothing, pink is the color of love. It promotes tenderness and is a comfort in times of emotional transition. Use it in a room when you are trying to increase receptivity and understanding. Try a pink lampshade, table runner or just a glass of rosé wine.
It represents nourishment and helps steady the body, balancing your equilibrium and encouraging stability. Use it to rejuvenate yourself, to promote physical and emotional well-being. Try a green pot, set of kitchen bowls, or bath towels.
We haven’t even made it through the entire list of colors and how they improve our lives. So far, I’d say we’re surrounded by the perfect shades to make us happy. Stay tuned. We’ve still more colors to share from our happy boxes by the sea!
