Red: Red is an intense color; it is associated with blood, war, strength and power. It stirs up excitement and is shown to raise blood pressure. However, red is also known to inspire appetite, so it is recommended in dining rooms.
Orange: Orange is a friendly and welcoming color. It promotes excitement and enthusiasm when in homes. It is a good color for workout rooms and playrooms.
Yellow: Yellow is bright and sunny; it communicates joy and happiness. It is energizing and uplifting but is shown to be overwhelming in large spaces. It is recommended for hallways or small spaces because it gives the illusion to open things up.
Green: Green is the easiest color on the eyes. It promotes relaxation and tranquility. The best space for green walls are bedrooms and living rooms.
Blue: Blue brings down blood pressure and heart rate because it is calming and relaxing. However, to some it can come across chilly and sad, but pairing it with warm hues prevents that. Blue is recommended for living rooms, family rooms and large kitchens.
Purple: Historically, purple was the most regal color. It is rich, elegant and dramatic which comes across as luxurious. It has the same restful quality as blue, but without the sad characteristics. Purple is best in bedrooms.
Neutrals: Neutrals are the most common colors in living spaces, mostly because homes come neutrally painted. However, they are easy to dress up or down with different pops of color. Black is not recommended for entire rooms, but is good as an accent color.
