Using Colors in Your Home

The use of specific colors in decorating can really define the mood and purpose of a room. Below are some colors and how they influence a room.

Red - Increases circulation & muscular activity.
Orange - Signifies optimism & enthusiasm.
Yellow - Represents creativity & joy.
Green - Symbolizes balance & nature.
Blue - Represents inspiration & truth.
Violet - Suggests humility & spirituality.
White - Signifies purity & innocence.
Black - Suggests strength & restores energy.

When I feng shui a home to make it ready for sale, I'm careful to look at the home's colors and will make changes to help it sell faster.

So think before you choose your color scheme. It could change the entire mood of the finished room.
