In my next installment of color psychology, I’d like to explore the 2 colors that are most predominant in nature; blue and green.  Interestingly, both colors are very similar in their translation into your mood.  Let’s explore.

 

{BLUE}  The color of peace and tranquility.  It’s been stated that people are more productive in blue rooms.  Although, be careful.  It can cause feelings of sadness…we don’t want to cause people to have “A case of the Monday’s”.  While blue can calm people, it can also decrease your appetite.  People typically stay away from blue foods (aside from blueberries and plums)…blue is usually an indication that something has spoiled or is poisonous.  If you want to eat less, eat off of a blue plate.

{FUN BLUE FACT}: In Columbia, Blue is associated with soap.  Yep, soap.  Can’t get more random than that!

 

{GREEN} The color of relaxation…being one with nature.  This is proved by the slogan “Go Green’.  Green often will calm us and refresh us…think of the “Green Room”, used to calm those before a televised interview or talk show.  Green can also cause us to improve our reading ability in speed and comprehension. 

{FUN GREEN FACT}: There is a superstition that sewing with green thread on the eve of a fashion show brings bad luck to their design house.
