Color Me Happy

Shelby: “My colors are blush and bashful”.
M”Lynn: “Her colors are pink and pink.”
— Steel Magnolias

According to environmental psychologists, the colors with which we surround ourselves really do have a dramatic effect on our moods, emotions, and overall wellness. It is called chromotherapy {or color therapy}. Being a color-lover myself, I feel better already knowing that a few extra jewel tones and some bright accents might be just what the doctor ordered!

DS purple

Purple is ideal for meditation, inspiration and intuition.

DS Blue

Blue has a more calming effect.

Red is energizing and revitalizing.

DS Green

Green helps to soothe, balance, and restore.

Orange promotes happiness, warmth and creativity.

How about you? What is your “signature color”?

    My good friend Emily is great w this concept. She’s a yellow girl and her home is so inspiring. I decided to go with it and chose orange for our family room and yellow for the master. I couldn’t lock myself into one. But I think it’s really fun and helpful in decorating.
