It is true that people associate red and yellow tints with colors that "emote."
Likewise, grays and blues are said to "calm" or be cool colors.
Interior designers use color selection to influence activity in a given space ... an area designed for social interaction may have exposure to the setting sun where yellow/red sunsets inspire emotional interaction.
Master bathrooms, on the other hand, are often painted in variations of blue ... water oriented colors that also create a calm retreat from the activities of the day.
Kitchens may include reds and yellows because they are activity central ... launching your family into their high expectations for the day and playing host to their stories of conquests before they settle for the evening.
If you believe the theory, mixing calm colors into high activity areas may be counterproductive.
Or placing warm colors in a room where overactive children reside may yield unmanageable family situations.
Have you ever known a misplaced cool or warm color to cause mischief or sedate your quests to the point of lethargy?
If you always feel sluggish or tired in a particular room, do you think changing to a warm color would help?
Or is this whole theory misplaced science and the cause of your energetic peaks and/or sluggish valleys simply too many carbs?
I'm fairly certain it's the paint ... but then again, I'm the paint guy!
What do you think?
