|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.
