IA_colorsamples003_197x117The paint color you choose is paramount when it comes to creating a mood or making a first impression. Color has the power to change mood, the shape and size of furnishings, and the shape and size of the room itself. When selecting keep in mind the psychological value behind the color.

Yellow communicates happiness. It’s perfect for kitchens, dining rooms and bathrooms when you want a color to energize and uplift. But yellow is not a good choice as the main color scheme of a room. People are more likely to lose their tempers in a yellow room, and babies tend to cry more in a room this color.
Green is considered the most restful color for the eye. Green is suited to almost any room in the house. In a kitchen, a sage or medium green cools down things; in a family room or living room it encourages unwinding, but has enough warmth to promote comfort and togetherness. Green also has a calming effect when used as a main color for decorating. It is believed to relieve stress by helping people relax.
Orange evokes excitement, enthusiasm and is an energetic color. While not a good idea for a living room or for bedrooms this color is great for an exercise room. It will bring all the emotions out that you need when jumping into your fitness routine.
