It's no secret that individual colors are related to specific emotions and moods — red to love, yellow to happiness, and so on. That said, it's easy to forget these associations when you're repainting a room — and often, choosing the right color can positively affect your feelings.
MindBodyGreen has published a helpful list which is worth keeping for the next time you have a project and need a bit of emotional healing. Some associations from their list that I hadn't thought of before include yellow for optimism, blue for wisdom, purple for respect, and brown for stability. If you're currently picking colors for a room and feel stuck, or even if you're down to two and can't decide, reading through the associations may help you choose the perfect color.
