The impression of a color and the message it conveys is of utmost importance in creating the psychological mood or ambiance that supports the function of a space.
The architect and interior designer consider the color effect of every element of a building’s construction, from the earthy colors of primary construction materials like wood, stone, brick, and marble, to the expansive variety of colors available for paint, doors, windows, siding, and trim.
Of course the effect of any shade or hue also depends on its position and context, since colors are almost never seen in isolation. Our perception of and reaction to a hue will change if it is on the interior or exterior of a building, whether it is located on a ceiling, a wall, or the floor and what the current light condition is. The attributes of the different hues should not be handled as end results to the architect or interior designer, but used more as a starting point.
