Setting an Atmosphere with Color

Setting an Atomosphere with Color
Choose a Room Color, Choose Your Mood
Setting an atmosphere for your home is simple and can make all the difference.  Color on the walls is an affordable place to start.  Did you know that therapists often use color therapy with patients.  Knowing these colors can help you set a great mood for your home.  Color therapy is even used to treat chronic disease.

Yellow: the color of the sun is also the color used to treat depression.  Painting a room yellow is cheerful and can add happiness to those long winter months.

Red: the color that stimulates the appetite, may not be the color that you want to paint your kitchen if you are a dieter however it may be great for your bedroom if you want to spice up your love life.

Blue and greens are the peaceful colors of earth and they provoke just that in your home as well, peace.  Sea mist green and vintage lavenders are especially calming.

Colors to avoid: Red or fuchsia in a kids room, these colors can cause hyperactivity.  Although black is nice for trims it can be quite depressing on a whole wall.

If you enjoyed this post you will want to check back later in the week for Setting the Atmosphere with Scent.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I did not consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I am normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. I did succeed in changing our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming where we are about to take an even bigger step and move out on a dirt road in the country where we can expand our hobby bees and more! You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
