When we pick a paint color, we hardly ever consider our personality or how that color might affect our health and happiness. We generally pick a zero-VOC that appeals to our personal preferences. But we've always read that color can affect mood — so it makes sense to pick a color that will elevate your mood based on the type of personality you have. And we just found an online tool that promises to help you do that...
AFM Safecoat and the Sierra Club have teamed up to provide their new Ayurveda Essence Paint Tool. Essentially, it is a personality quiz (with a few questions about your physical traits) that will then prescribe a number of paint colors designed to balance out your natural tendencies.
Thin, dry people benefit from deep, dark colors; highly energetic, easily irritated people need cooling colors. etc.
Take the quiz and see what paint color is right for you. (We're Vata-Kapha ... What are you?)
