Colour affects our depth perception
When choosing the colours for a room or office you should consider this. Bright, cool colours generally make a room feel bigger, and dark warm colours generally make a room feel smaller and more intimate. To use the right colour for your room, it is important to decide the purpose of the room and the age-group of the people using that space.

Wearing bright colours could be the one thing to help you bag a project!
Wearing bright colours stand out more than greyed off colours. Bright colours can improve your mood but also the moods of others around you which could affect the outcome of that important meeting. Or make an impact so a client remembers you when deciding who they choose to work with.

Pink is the colour used for anger management
When feeling angry it has been said that visualising the colour pink can reduce the anger you are feeling. The colour pink promotes calmness and peace. Working with pink lifts you to a calmer, softer, soothing space.

Red and Yellow promote hunger
Red, makes you feel warm, comforted, and loved, which is what some would describe as a good meal should make us feel. Yellow, as well as being the ‘happy’ colour, has been found to encourage hunger when used with red, your brain releases more serotonin, a feel-good hormone, when you see the colour. Notice how many restaurants use yellow in their logo’s to make you want to stop and eat.

School buses are painted yellow for a reason
Yellow objects are noticed faster than any other colour. Moreover, yellow is detected by the lateral peripheral vision of the eye faster than other colours. Some experts also believe that yellow or a greenish lime yellow are more visible to the human eye compared to red.

Men and women see colour differently
Men and women really don’t see ‘eye to eye’ study says. It’s said that men’s eyes see colours, such as Red, women’s eyes will see the different shades/tones of that colour, in this case Maraschino and Cayenne. This phenomenon of seeing colour differently is attributed to evolutionary adaptations where men have been trained to see distant objects and track movements whereas women have been used to observing minute details to feed her family and keep them safe.
