Have you ever noticed how different rooms in your house have different effects on you? Some rooms make you feel warm and cozy where others keep you alert and on guard? Colour is more often the reason to how you feel about these various rooms. The colour of a room can not only sway the way you think but change your actions and reactions.
Colour has other effects on you that you might not even be aware of. Most hospitals at one time were painted a medium to light tone of green since green for most humans is very calming and relaxing. Red is a stimulant colour. If you want some great reactions from the bedroom closets, cabinetry or even your kitchen, finish it in a shade of red (evil grin, nudge, nudge, wink, wink). Darker shades also have a calming reaction. Brown cabinetry most often will make you sleepy or have that nesting feeling. Currently, cocoa or nutmeg colours are very popular in living rooms for that reason. Relaxing and nesting.
