Shades of Grr: How Wall Color Affects Mood
Colors can have a profound impact on human's moods and behaviors. Read on to figure out how to use color association to your advantage, at work or at home.
Humans’ attachment to certain colors is hardly universal—you might have a uniquely fond association for, say, the hue of your grandmother's living room—but there is some evidence that the color of a room can have a predictable effect on people's moods. If you want to stimulate appetite, energetic socializing, or productivity, studies have shown that adorning walls with yellow and red will do the trick. On the opposite end of the spectrum, a blue room tends to have a calming effect that promotes a contemplative mood. Green imparts feelings of serenity—perhaps because of its strong association with nature—and is a popular choice for bedrooms, along with purple and pink, both of which inspire creativity.
Strategically devised color schemes are a part of daily life—look no further than the red and yellow logos of pretty much every fast food chain. But, whether in the home or the workplace, savvy color selection can enhance your life, improve your work life, or even give you a competitive advantage.
