Does Paint Color Matter?

Room color can influence our mood and our thoughts. Don't worry about fads and trends because just like cars and clothing, they come and go with time. Choose the colors that set the mood you desire in the room.

Yellow is the happy sunshine color, but used extensively in a room it can create a feeling of angry frustration. Use it wisely in small doses.
