We’ve been delivering fast-track refurbishments through London and the South East for over three decades! We work within the hospitality, leisure, commercial and education sectors, with a reputation for quality craftsmanship and excellent service. With such a large variety of clients across different industries, we see various interior designs, finishes and aesthetics. But, after all these years, one thing that continues to fascinate us is colour!
Colour psychology plays a significant role in influencing emotions, moods, and perceptions in different environments. So, in this article, we thought we’d explore how colour can make your customers, clients, and pupils feel. Read on for all the details.
Colours we see in our fast-track refurbishments through London and the South East:
Colours for Calm Concentration:
We work with schools, academies, nurseries, and colleges within the education sector. One of our clients, the Outcomes First Group, delivers specialist learning environments for children and young people with autism.
Soft greens, reminiscent of nature, create a calming and soothing atmosphere, but green is also associated with improved focus and concentration. So, it’s no wonder we find green popular in schools and colleges.
Yellow is another colour that we incorporated into the interior refurbishment for Napier School in Farnborough. Designers know that yellow is energising and uplifting, promoting optimism and creativity. Again, it is perfect for a learning environment.
Colours for a Great Night Out:
Colour isn’t just about paintwork, either. The designers have incorporated incredible soft furnishings in some of our hospitality projects. Take the beautiful Browns Brasserie & Bar Beaconsfield as an example. The velvet orange seating is bold and energetic, evoking excitement and enthusiasm.
Now, take that vibrant burnt orange and add to it a stunning teal blue often associated with dramatic sophistication, and you have a perfectly elegant space for a great night out.
Warm & Cosy:
Other hospitality businesses are less about vibrancy and energy and more about a warm and cosy welcome. In these cases, designers will often choose more neutral tones.
Beige, taupe, and similar neutral tones are comforting and inviting, adding warmth without overwhelming a space.
Alternatively, we might see soft reds and terracotta to evoke warmth, energy, and comfort.
The Leather Bottle combines both palettes perfectly with these comfortable and welcoming leather armchairs.
We feel fortunate to work with some of the best designers in the business, who always inspire us with exciting trends and new colour palettes.
