Is there a way to affect staff productivity, lift your mood or calm clients simultaneously? The simple answer is color. It’s long been known that people are affected by color. Color is culturally symbolic, but more importantly, color can help us focus, maintain energy or reinforce a tranquil mood. Color psychology is used in designing everything from hotel rooms to cereal packages. Colors affect emotions, concentration, even our well-being—and there is even evidence to show that in a school environment, color influences learning.
