  • Yellow is stimulating and lifts spirits, but the wrong tone of it can make you feel anxious
  • Green is a reassuring, balancing color, but, depending on how it's used, can be perceived as bland
  • Violet encourages contemplation, but too much of it could bring about too much introspection
  • Orange is stimulating and fun, but too much of it can be overwhelming
  • Pink is soothing but too much can be draining
  • Gray is neutral, psychologically, and can be depressing unless the right tone is used
  • Black is serious and sophisticated, but can be heavy
  • White gives a heightened perception of space but can be a strain to look at
  • Brown is a serious color, but warmer than black and is solid and supportive
