How Interior Design Affects Your Happiness, Honolulu, Hawaii

Take a moment to look around your home. Do you smile at certain pieces of decor or feel frustrated because a wall isn’t the color you want? How your home is decorated has a profound effect on your mood, and can either contribute to your overall happiness or feelings of stress and frustration. Learn more about the connection between the mind and interior design, as you may want to make a few changes around your home.

What Role Does Interior Design Play in Your Happiness?


There’s a link between psychology and color, and the best interior design schemes, whether they’re based on Chinese Feng Shui or Indian Vastu Shastra, take color into account. Red is associated with love and passion, but it can also increase anxiety because it’s an angry hue. Like red, orange is another energetic color that demands attention, which is why both are commonly used in marketing materials. In comparison, blue and natural greens soothe irritated minds and promote tranquility and relaxation.

Interior designers use light to create an ambiance, such as adding large windows to flood a living room with natural light or switching from harsh overhead lighting to wall sconces that create a peaceful glow. Too little natural light makes rooms feel cramped, while an abundance of windows contributes to open, airy spaces. Light also enhances interior design by spotlighting focal points, like a large painting or comfy couch area.

Furniture Placement

According to the laws of Feng Shui, couches, chairs, tables, and other pieces placed in a certain way can promote balance and harmony. For example, position a living room couch against a door-facing wall because it’s the centerpiece of the room. If you don’t have a usable wall, opt for large furniture against the couch back, such as a heavy table, to keep the piece from moving. Interior design schemes that follow Feng Shui laws also eliminate clutter, as messy, unorganized spaces contribute to stress.
