Every wonder why we find one object appealing and are displeased or turned off by another? Color—whether architectural or in products or persons, color accounts for 60 percent of our response to an object or a place.Image title

Colors play a very important role in our lives. They have the ability to affect our emotions and moods in amazing ways. The effects of color are subtle yet significant; physical and psychological. Our responses to color are present in everything we do; sometimes in obvious and other times subconscious ways. Color use is important to us personally in our homes and in the places where we work.

Communicating through color is a great way to affect the mood and cause psychological reaction in the mind and body. Some colors can actually raise your blood pressure and increase metabolism. Our own personal feelings and experiences taint our associations with colors as well. Color meanings may have something to do with your past, your experiences or your culture. For instance, while the color white is often used in many Western countries to represent purity and innocence, it is seen as a symbol of mourning in many Eastern European countries...

How significant is the meaning of colors? What impact do they have on our body and mind?
