- Watery blues and fresh greens can help you relax after a tiring day.
- Warm tones, such as reds, oranges, and yellows, can help get you up and going.
Use different colors in different parts of your home, to help create the moods you want.
Examples: Cool colors where you want to relax, such as a bedroom, warm ones where you want a feeling of high energy, such as die kitchen.
