Rainbow Roundup

What’s your favorite color?

Color adds character to our homes and brightens up our wardrobes, but did you know that it also affects our actions and emotions?  For example, orange gets your brain juices flowing and a green bedroom can help you sleep better. You don’t have to be over the rainbow to trick your mind into being calm, hungry and even happy! All you need is a can of paint.

Any color you can imagine has its own unique properties. Establishments know this, and may be cashing in on your brain’s reaction to certain colors. For example, did you know that seeing red makes you hungry? Next time you’re eating out, notice the red details in the restaurant. Also, look for a lack of blue, which suppresses hunger.
