The colors that surround us have an impact on the way we feel. The infographic below breaks down some of those connections between color and emotion, and shows you which colors to choose for the overall atmosphere you’re going for. The connections between color and emotion are part art and part psychology, so don’t take them too too seriously. You’ll see some of the standards you probably know here, like red being a “power,” high energy color while blue is a “cool” color more suitable for relaxing spaces or retreats. The infographic here gives you a hypothetical home floor plan to help you understand which colors work best in which spaces, and which colors are reportedly responsible for which physiological effects.
