Colror and Pyschology Wheel

If we look in scripture we see color associated with for example the priesthood, royalty, regalness, and seasons have colors, nature is all about a range of colors.  In winter people can get more depressed, less light, less, color.  Yet, too much sun and your skin burns and it can be deadly, so too much yellow, hmmm, not so good.  Too much darkness and depression will set in, so everything, even color has impact and I find it interesting what colors mean, what effect they can have on mood.  Interior decorators will use color to often give the appearance of more space to smaller apartments or rooms, or add color accents with rugs to do so.  How can we use color?

When decorating, if we have someone who has good taste to help us out and can work with the color wheel we might be able to create the perfect harmony of colors in the home, and same goes for our office if we have leeway in decorating.  What about wardrobe?  Let’s say you want to look savvy, sophisticated, but also vibrant, well maybe outfits for ladies that mix black with turquoise when going to work or to events, things like that.  If you want to bring creativity to your area if you are an artist, find a balance of two colors to bring out focus, but also creative flow, put decor around your space, artistic space or workspace. We can encourage others to do the same, friends, family, partners.  It seems to be an interesting area of consideration as regards moods and psychology, even for how we decorate our space, our wardrobe, accessories.  Don’t you think?
