|What Colors Say About Us:
Colors and Moods
This is perhaps the most general and adaptable branch of color theory. At the highest level, colors are divided into two categories: cool colors and warm colors.
Cool colors: Lavender, blue-green, blues.
Warm colors: Reds, oranges, yellows.
Digging a little deeper, we can classify colors in terms of the general impact they have on our emotions.
For example, here are some colors that:
Soothe emotions: Peach, pink, blues, and greens. Of all the colors in the spectrum, green is the easiest on the eye.
Keep us grounded: Beiges, tans, and browns.
Help energize us: Golds, black, burgundy, reds, royal blue.
