After years of research, professionals and doctors have discovered great effects of color on the human body. Not only can color improve a room in a home, office, or business, but it can also change a situation or mental state into thinking something different. The Color Answer Book by Leatrice Eisman describes some of the conditions and how a color can create a cure to the negative mood.
Keep in mind that colors have shades and tones which can tie into your personal style in creating the perfect environment. Looking at some of the color cures, I personally have purple walls in my craft area to heighten my creativity for all my Pinterest projects. I found a shade of purple that blended nicely with other traditional colors. Do not be afraid of change because you can always paint it another color.
