Could it be by changing certain colors in the decor scheme of your home, whether on the floors, the walls or the windows, you can actually alter the mood of everyone who enters the room? According to many design experts the answer is yes.

Beauty they say is in the eye of the beholder and the same holds true for color. While one person may loathe red drapes because they are simply too intense for their tastes others may love them for their warmth and stimulating effect.

Even memories from your childhood can affect the way you perceive a color. For instance a friend of mine loves her yellow kitchen because it reminds her of picking daffodils as a child.

Color perception also depends upon where you happen to come from. In North America we associate white with weddings purity and cleanliness. However in Japan it is a funeral color, associated with loneliness and death.

Even world events can change the ways people perceive colors. In the Great Depression what designers call the "taupe age" was ushered in, partly because few people were in the mood for jolly bright colors around their homes.

By the same token the post war optimism of the 1950s brought splashed of bright color back into home decorating incorporating "happy" colors like pink and green.

What colors inspire you? What colors seem to put you in a better mood? Determining which these are can help you when you are planning the look of the rooms in your home.

Whatever you want to change in your home, the carpets, the window coverings or even just the ceramic tile in the bathroom making the right color choices will increase your overall enjoyment of your home each and every day.
