Setting the Mood of a Room with Color

First think about your favorite color and identify how it makes you feel. Does it make you feel relaxed, energetic, comforted, or joyful? Then think about where you’d like to use it in your home and if that emotion fits the functionality of the space. For example, if blue make you feel relaxed you may want to consider using in a master suite. If a color makes you feel energetic and joyful, perhaps the kitchen is the perfect place for this color.
