Color is Moody

Did you know that color choices are cyclical?  When Americans experienced the shock of the September 11 attack, we were smitten with grief, anger, and fear.  Our mood became heavy, and even the colors we selected to paint our walls became dark.

Lots of brick reds went onto the walls of kitchens and family rooms, two places where a family hangs out the most.  Now our mood has lifted, and we are beginning to choose colors that are more in the mid-range on the color wheel.  These colors lend themselves to much less intensity, and they lift our mood.

 

This palette makes us think Spring!
