    I love this! I have seen bits and pieces of this before, but never all together. I totally believe color can influence our moods and habits. Awesome find!

  2. Really cool! And true! 🙂

    I must be the exception to the rule because blue’s my favourite colour and I’m a woman, I love the sea which is not always peaceful and serene and it’s breathtaking when it’s wild and rough…someone should tell my boss about the relationship between blue and productiveness 😉 A beautiful splash of colour just the same, regardless of the psychology of it all. 🙂

    • Rahburt says:

      There she is :D. Well I think your womanly status is still secure. And I loved your beautiful explanation of why you like it you fiery girl you. Ha, he’ll just paint your office blue :).

      • per mare... says:

        Fiery red? 😉 I’d wear red but I would never paint my walls red. To me a colour is just a colour and I choose it because I like it, not because of how it’s supposed to make me feel. The boss on the other hand is a different matter, he will never know what the colour blue could do for his workforce. 😉

      • Rahburt says:

        ha, yes don’t you remember our previous conversations about fiery personality to go along with your fiery red hair as you shot arrows?? well i thought the same about color until i read this :). ha, what’s your bosses contact info so i can tell him?!

      • per mare... says:

        In answer to your questions, “yes” to the first and “no way” to the second. 😉 How about a nice cuppa tea in red teacups, o covert fiery one?

      • Rahburt says:

        haha, come on! oooohhhh nice tea in red cups, sign me up 😀

      • per mare... says:

        Actually, I’m thinking of sacking my boss. 😉

        Your “contract” sir…”I, the undersigned do hereby profess to engage in the Pakistani way of doing business, even though we’re not Pakistani, with the one from downunder for the purpose of initiating, consolidating and completing the 3 cups of tea philosophy. Said teacups will be red, one with pretty flowers for she who likes to fire arrows into the sunset, kinda.

        Sign away, stranger. 😉

      • Rahburt says:

        ugh! i replied to this and yet it did not post :-. ha, so is your boss sacked yet?? well girl from downunder it looks we are having no less than 3 cups of tea then based on that way of doing business ;). red and flowers aye, wowzers. based on these wonderful terms i Rahburt do hereby agree!

    This is definitely a thing. I know this because I watch a lot of HGTV…. 😉 I’ve never actually seen a diagram like this before, so I learned something new today 😀

  5. Going by this fascinating information, I feel like I should have a green bedroom, because I could do with a lot better health! And a blue living room because I spend a lot of time in front of the computer in that room, and maybe I would be so much more productive!! My living room walls are pink, and yes I do find it relaxing! My favourite colour is blue, but I don’t usually like walls decorated in blue, makes me feel a little stressed, not relaxed at all. Must be all that productivity trying to get out! 😉

    There are times when I think there is really something to all this colour thing, why we choose certain colours and why we don’t. But other times I wonder if it’s just imagination. Our minds and the way we think can turn anything in any direction, and colours seem irrelevant then.

    Perhaps I’ll try some brightly coloured blue items near my computer screen and see if I become more productive on the computer in a lot less time! 🙂

    • Rahburt says:

      haha, love your rationale behind why blue may stress you out. i think i may just go lavender in a good portion of the rooms. it seems nice and calming.

      yes, and what about people that are color blind? 😉

      ha, just dress in blue from head to toe and a bunch of smurf stuffed animals to surround you.

  6. fantasha says:

    Great post! I am such a fan of color and am in the process of choosing colors for my new home. Very helpful post, thanks 🙂

    • Rahburt says:

      thanks! i loved the info too and glad to know others appreciate it also :D. i’d totally give these colors a try too if i was in the position you are. good luck in creating your correct color collaboration.

    I wrote a write up on color therapy long back…. this reminded me of that… i believe it is true 🙂 🙂

    • Rahburt says:

      what is the link or the name of the post you wrote?

      • ashadeofpen says:

        not here on my blog rob.. it was a part of “paid work for living” article.. i might have it somewhere saved on my computer… but regardless I love pink, red, orange, yellow, purple, green and blue at times.. feels like i love colors itself 😛

      • Rahburt says:

        ah i see. when are you going to start getting more monetary reward for your writing instead of someone else?!! ha, it sounds like you love colors in general 😛

  8. Thank you for sharing this. My favourite colour since I got injured after shifted to green, because to me it was the symbol of good health 😀 This post is so good that justifies the colour, not just a feeling 😀

    Your friend,

    • Rahburt says:
