Valspar paint recently partnered with leading colour experts and The Sleep Charity to launch their new offering, The Colour Effect. The range of inspiring palettes, together with colour selection advice, aims to help customers combat common issues such as stress, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and sleep disruption.

The range consists of Colour for Sleep, Colour for Stress Relief and Mood Boosting Colours for Winter (SAD). Each pack contains eight Valspar shades that have been selected especially for their wellbeing benefits, along with guidance on picking the colours you’ll love.

Colour For Sleep: Combines dark blues, sea greens, purples and warming neutrals, shades from the Colour For Sleep palette can reimagine your bedroom and create a haven to unwind in, inviting your body and mind to relax and switch off. Paints to consider for sleep in this palette include Valspar’s Kindness of StrangersGrey Berry, Crushed NutmegIndigo DreamsEthereal DanceSea Crest, Pink Alabaster and Toasted Beige.

Colour For Stress Relief: This nature-inspired palette features a combination of hazy greens, blues and greys including Valspar’s Palace Walls, Heather Haze, Quiet Storm, Silver Mauve, Peaceful Soul, Calm Water, Zinc Blue and Mother Nature. The palette is designed to create a de-stimulating environment to combat stress and enhance relaxation and calm. By pairing tonal and uniform colour combinations, the palette uses hues that are less demanding for the eyes, tapping into ‘Biophilia’, the innate human instinct to connect with nature.

Mood Boosting Colours for Winter (SAD): As the production of hormones decreases with the lack of sunlight, it's common for many to feel sleepier and experience low mood in line with the change of season. A refreshing blend of clean colours, the greens, yellows and oranges in this palette are associated with joy and positivity; reflecting as much natural light as possible to stimulate serotonin and enhance happiness. Valspar colours featured in this pack include Sea Silk, Toque, Teal Time, Golden Sue, Soft Focus, Cozy Glow, Dollface, and Peach Rose.
