In today’s blog post, we’ll be discussing some of the meanings behind different colors so you can make the best possible decision for your next framed display. Read on to learn more, and order your custom snap frame today!

In our last blog post, we talked about the different groups on the color wheel and how they can work well together. Today, we build off of that knowledge to help you make an informed choice of what part of the color wheel you should utilize. One thing to keep in mind is that different colors are associated with different meanings and emotions. Some may be specific, like the bright blue of your first bike and the excitement you felt. Others have the same meaning to almost everyone. With our guidance, you can play off of those meanings to create the work environment you’ve been aiming for!

Warm Colors

Different portions of the color wheel can be grouped by “temperature,” and these groupings often share the same meanings. Warm colors, for example, include hues like red, orange, yellow, and the shades in between. This color group is often associated with feelings like energy, passion, and positivity. They are bright and stimulating, which is why they are also used to grab our attention and warn us of danger, like yellow “wet floor” signs and red stop lights.

If you want to draw the attention of your clients or employees to an important framed display, then choose a custom snap frame in a warm color!

Cool Colors

On the opposite side of the color wheel from warm colors are “cool” colors, which include blue, green, and purple. These hues tend to be more subdued than exciting, stimulating a feeling of calm and relaxation. Spas or meditation spaces, for example, often utilize shades of blue and green to put people at ease.

If you want to create an environment of peace and calm, then choose a custom snap frame in a cool color!

Neutral Colors

There is one group of colors that doesn’t fit a “temperature” — neutral colors. This includes black, white, gray, brown, and more. They can be warm or cool depending on the shade, but they most often serve as a backdrop to brighter colors and reflect the meanings associated with those colors. Neutral colors can also provide an effective contrast to the other color groups we’ve mentioned.

If you want a more subtle framed display, or you want the content of your display to stand out, then a neutral color can be the perfect option!
