The Impact of Colours in Interior Design: Discover the RAH Colour Test

Updated: Jun 3

Let's be honest—neutral interiors are everywhere. Open your social media, and you’re bound to see endless photos of grey sofas, beige walls, and white kitchens. What happend to colours in Interior Design?

I’ll admit it—I’ve designed my fair share of white kitchens at the request of clients. While these spaces can look sleek and sophisticated, deep down, I always felt that something was missing. At times, I was guided by the fear of pushing the client's boundaries or choosing the wrong colours. Many people think that colours in Interior Design follow trends and worry they might get tired of them over time. This was my mindset until I discovered the RAH Colour Test.

Why Do We Need More Colour?

Neutrals have been the darlings of the design world, but there’s a strong case for bringing more colour into our homes. Here’s why:

  1. Emotional Well-Being: Colours can significantly impact our mood and emotions. They can enhance feelings of comfort, happiness, and overall well-being. Research in the field of colour psychology and design, highlight the profound influence that colours have on our mental state and emotional health.

  2. Personal Expression: Your home should be a reflection of you, not just a page out of a catalogue. Using colours that you love and that resonate with you allows you to express your individuality and make your space uniquely yours.

  3. Visual Interest: A well-chosen palette can add depth and interest to a room. Neutrals can sometimes feel flat or monotonous, but incorporating different colours can create focal points, highlight architectural features, and add layers of visual intrigue. Think of your home as a canvas—why not paint it with all the colours that make you happy?

Introducing the RAH Colour Test

Traditional colour selection methods often rely on current trends or big data, which might not align with personal preferences. The RAH Colour Test offers a different approach, focusing on finding colours that you’ll love and won’t get tired of because they resonate with you personally.

The RAH Colour Test is all about Resonance—identifying colours that connect with your emotions and personal experiences. Here’s how it works and why it’s worth trying:

  1. Personal Connection: The RAH Colour Test helps you discover colours that evoke positive feelings and memories. These are the hues that make you feel comfortable, happy, and at ease in your own space​. Think of it as colour therapy for your home!

  2. Long-Lasting Appeal: By focusing on resonance, the RAH Colour Test ensures that you select colours you’ll continue to love over time. This means fewer changes and a more enduring design. No more repainting every time a new trend hits—your home stays stylish and true to you.

  3. Authentic Design: Using the RAH Colour Test means your colour choices are a true reflection of your personality and style, rather than just following the latest trends. This authenticity can make your home feel more like a true sanctuary.

  4. Enhanced Ambience: Colours that resonate with you can help create the desired mood in each room. Whether it’s a vibrant, energizing kitchen or a serene, restful bedroom, the RAH Colour Test guides you in choosing the right hues for each space​ (RAH Colours)​.
