Red = Energy?

The information below was extracted for an article located at http://www.ehow.com/facts_5170926_interior-design-color-theory.html


Red stimulates conversation and raises the energy level in a room. Painting all the walls in a room red may be too intense. Use red as an accent color rather than the dominate color or as part of a wall with a chair rail.


Yellow is an uplifting, energizing color and is a good choice for kitchens and bathrooms. This color is not a good choice for the dominate color in a room because some people become irritated and angry in a yellow room.


Blue is relaxing and is a good choice for the bedroom. It lowers blood pressure and slows down the heart rate. A soft shade of blue can be painted on all the walls of a room without adverse affects.


Green promotes comfort and gives a sense of relaxation and calm. Green can be used in any room in the home but is an especially good choice for a bedroom.


Dark shades of purple are dramatic and sophisticated. Shades of lilac or lavender give calmness to a room and are a nice choice for a bedroom.


Orange is an exciting and energetic color. Orange can over-power a room quickly but will work very well in an exercise room.
