What Colors Should I Choose If I Suffer From Depression?

Color plays such a huge role in the home, it’s really the best holistic approach to feeling well in your home.

Have depression issues? Choose colors that are light, bright, and clean.


Here we have a color palette that even makes me happy! You have a blue a yellow and two shades of green. Perfect!

You can mix and match these colors throughout your home depending on which ones you love the best.

I’m gravitating towards that yellow. It’s really hard to find the perfect yellow in any color palette and here, this one is just perfect. It’s buttery and warm like the real butter. I can see it melting on my warm toast just dripping off the sides. So yummy!


I hesitate to use blue when working with clients who are affected by depression but this blue is uplifting and clean – like a new sky on a hot summer day.


Green, which is my all-time favorite hue, is light and innocent here. It reminds me of tiny new tea leaves or the blades of grass that emerge as Spring begins to bloom.


The white that has on the bottom is the neutral that I like to use for ALL my color palettes that call for white. It’s not pure white but soft and warm like cotton. Rarely do we need a stark white in a color palette, MAYBE for trim only.


So how nicely I described these colors? I painted a picture of calmness and all emotions that feel good. THAT is how color should make you feel when you see it.

If you’d like the names of this color palette please contact me at DecoratingbyDonna@mac.com and be on your way to having one happy home ❤

    You say these are the best colors to use however you didn’t name them. Please name the Benjamin Moore colors.
    Thank you

      Carol – I usually don’t name any of the color palettes I design. The main reason is they don’t really exist. I design all of these from scratch based on what my eye likes. No apps. Also, since I do this for a living, if I name all the palettes, I’d put myself out of a job. This palette is very similar to some Benjamin Moore colors but I still have to hunt them don’t and see which one they are – which takes time, thus the charge. I’d be glad to offer this service to you if you’d like, send me an email for more details.

    Hello. I was wondering colors for depression anxiety and ADHD for a relatively small dark apartment with east/north exposure. I have a golden yellow wood flooring mostly, with charcoal floor in the kitchen with white cabinets and light grey countertops. Thanks. I usually use Farrow and Ball brand since that is what I am used to painting with and it does not smell as much.
