The Fascinating Psychology of Color

You’ve probably already heard that fast food restaurants like to paint their interiors in shades of reds and yellows because they make people eat faster, or that retirement homes tend to paint their walls in calming blue shades to help residents relax. But there is a lot more to the psychology of color than these basic facts known to the general public, and this infographic can help you understand the subtleties of the art.

In fact, just a small change in shade can mean the difference between a color being calm and lively -like the difference between light blue and periwinkle for example.

While most people may not need to know these facts for professional design purposes, it’s important to remember just how big of a difference a slight change of shade can make while you paint the rooms in your home.
