Colors elicit an emotional response that designers need to understand. For pool builders, this knowledge can help when they’re trying to create the ideal palette for a client. For example, if the individual is quiet and calm, blue schemes probably will speak strongly to them. Here’s what the experts have to say about each color’s significance:
Power, love, hate, strong emotions. In a home, it means hospitality and is a traditional color.
Activity, energy, youth. In a sense, orange is a modern color that has been popular in the past five years.
Learning, wealth, the East. This is a color of visibility that is underused, though it is widespread in nature.
Nature, the environment, abundance. Many say green is the new blue and as such, it has dominated design since the early ’90s.
Water, sky, respectability. As red is the color of women, blue is the color of men. It is the nation’s favorite color, conservative but complex.
Regal, ecclesiastical, elite. Like yellow, it’s an underused color and one of the oldest in the world.
