Wordless Wednesday: Colours ‘n’ Moods

Coloured Eggs

I often get an itch to take some photographs.  It relaxes me!  Recently, I was scratching an itch by taking shots of my Singaporean eggs and I’ve decided to share one of those shots for Wordless Wednesday this week as a WARM change from all the COOL beach and ocean photo’s I have been featuring lately on the blog!

It’s well known that the colours we surround ourselves with can affect our mood.  The rich, warm colourful tones in the eggs pictured above provide me with a welcoming and cozy, homely feeling that makes me feel uplifted and happy.  These are just some of the eggs I brought back with me from a trip to Singapore to visit my sister when she was living there some years ago.

I love a neutral home but with splashes of colour that make me feel good!   I do like cool colours too!  Colour plays such an important role in our state of mind and moods.

Do you know what colours make you feel uplifted and happy, calmer, warm and cosy?

Ciao for now,

    Such rich, opulent colors! When we were in Hong Kong years ago, my parents bought a beautiful, hand carved rosewood dining table and had it shipped back to NZ where we were living at the time. They also brought back some jade ornaments, the perfect contrast against the warmth of the burgundy-toned rosewood.

      I love rich, opulent colours! I am drawn to them more than another other colours. Oh that rosewood dining table and the jade ornaments would be beautiful together! 🙂

    They are beautiful and provide a sensational splash of colour. I agree that colours affect mood. I gravitate towards the warm colours.

    Gorgeous eggs.
    I think blues and greens and white work best for me to keep me feeling calm and at peace. Funnily enough I don’t have a lot of them around my house! No wonder I am at the end of my tether half the time …

      Blues, greens and white are spot on for creating a sense of calm. I have a little of them but much more of the rich, warm colours which I seem to be drawn to! Maybe that’s why I am often a little nutty too! haha 😉 x

    What gorgeous colours in those eggs. I love neutral colours as well as it’s easy to then change a few things to have pops of colour throughout.

      They ARE gorgeous colours aren’t they?! Yep – neutral colours with splashes of colour – allows a lot more flexibility for change and creates a nice uncluttered feel I think. 🙂 x

    I really love vibrant colours – they seem to make me feel more alive.
