Do Bipolar People React To Colors? What Color Would Be Best For A Bedroom?

Person is male, 30's.

Answer

Hi, Linda. For what it's worth, my bedroom is a shade away from white.

This is a generalization, but our population tends to view things with greater intensity than others, so you don't want to go overboard on color. On the other hand, boring can be depressing.

From what I recall from a long-ago art appreciation class: "Hot" colors such as red tend to jump out at you and engulf you. "Cool" colors such as blue create the effect of more space. But some degree of "warm" is what most decorators shoot for, which is why you see a lot of off-whites. Full-strength colors tend to be used sparingly, for a bit of contrast.

You definitely want light colors that reflect rather than absorb light. We bipolars tend to be very sensitive to lack of light. Try to make the windows and the sun coming through a main focus of the room.

Restful but cheery is what you're aiming for.

Keep in mind that what goes on the walls etc is going to make all the difference.

Hope this helps ...
