Paint color and office mood

     Thinking of painting your office?  Studies show that the color you choose can affect your employees mood and energy level.  The paint on your office walls should reflect the mood you want in your work environment.

     Yellow:  This color suggests joy and optimism.  It also stimulates the brain and encourages those around to pay attention.  Too much bright yellow may have an adverse effect–studies show that people in intense yellow rooms lose their tempers more often than those in other color rooms.

     Blue:  Blue is the color of serenity.  It has shown to slow heart rate and lower blood pressure.  It can also inspire unity and confidence.  Blue may be a good choice for a fast-paced, high stress work environment.

     Green:  is the color that is the most restful on the eye.  It is refreshing and implies youth and vigor.  It is most people’s favorite color.

     Red (and to a lesser extent, orange):  This energetic color stirs up excitement.  Use sparingly!
