Colour and Mood

Sitting in a drab office all day, I definitely understand the effects colour has on our lives (thank goodness I have a window to look out, lest I go postal). But knowing which colours elicit which sort of human response is not exactly common knowledge. The good folks at Freshome posted a helpful guide titled, Room Color and How it Affects your Mood, spelling out the three basic ways colour effects our physical and mental responses. Definitely a good resource to tap into before busting out the cans of paint, because you don't want a room that evokes excitement and energy when what you really want is soothing and relaxing.
