Hue knew? The surprising ways colours can improve your mood

At Roomie, we believe that colours are more than just a visual experience. They also have the power to influence our mood, emotions, and physical state. This is why colour therapy, or chromotherapy, is becoming increasingly popular as a holistic approach to promoting well-being and why, when it comes to the most intimate space in our homes - the bedroom - choosing the right colours for our bedding can have a profound effect on our sleep quality.

The concept of colour therapy is not a new one. In fact, ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians and Chinese used colour to promote healing and balance in the body. Today, experts in the field believe that different hues can elicit different emotions and even influence our physical responses. We have taken these insights and applied them to our debut collection, carefully curating colours based on their calming and mood boosting properties for a feel good sleep.

If you often find yourself feeling anxious or have trouble sleeping, studies have found that exposure to blue can help regulate the body’s circadian rhythm and reduce stress levels. Just like how spending time near the water is proven to lower stress and anxiety levels, the strong colour association with water to blue means you can recreate those positive emotions and feelings of well-being through the power of colour. So if you’re unable to take a dip in the ocean, diving into our blue bedsheets can provide a similar calming effect.


If you are a restless sleeper or find it hard to switch your brain off at night, green is associated with feelings of calm and tranquillity and help us feel grounded. The colour of nature, shades of green help to balance our emotions and leave us feeling safe and secure.



Similarly, lilac is known for its soothing properties and can promote feelings of relaxation. This hue is known to uplift spirits and is the colour of friendliness and hope. It is often recommended for people who struggle with feelings of anxiety or insomnia as it radiates a gentle and loving energy for self and others.


If you’re looking to boost your energy levels in the morning, yellow is known to promote feelings of happiness and optimism helping you wake up on the right side of the bed everyday. This is because yellow is strongly associated with sunlight which stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that helps regulate mood. So even if summer has come and gone, you can still soak up some sunshine with our buttery yellow bedsheets.


Ultimately, finding the perfect colour for your bedding is all about what speaks to your individual sleep style and home design aesthetic. The good news is, there is no wrong choice, with each Roomie colour chosen specifically for its mood-boosting properties. We invite you to experiment with colour combinations that speak to your unique personality and find the one that makes you feel most relaxed and rejuvenated.

Dream in colour, sleep in Roomie.
