Colors can effect out mood and make us sad or happy; they affect our eating habits and even our heart rate. Most people don’t put this much though into color and what is does to us. It is proven that several colors actually raise our heart rates while others can lower it. Take into mind which color to paint a room with what you will be doing in that room.

You will want a relaxing room every once in a while and you will want a high energy room as well.
