Did you know that colors can change your mood? Are you feeling like your home could use a little pick-me-up? Or maybe you want to calm down. If you need a change you could try a little color therapy.

First determine if you would like your room to have a calming energy or perk you up. Then pick a color that fits your mood. Here is a list of colors and how they play into the feelings people have:

Red- If you want to feel passionate or creative go with red. Do you want the kids to eat dinner every night? If so, paint the kitchen red. Red makes us feel hungry (think of all those restaurant chains). If red is too bold for the walls, use it in accents like lamps, pots and wall art to inspire.

Yellow-Just like the sun, yellow makes people smile. If you go with a bold, bright yellow use it sparingly. Add an artistic flare through the use of yellow flowers or fun frames.

Blue-Blue has a calming effect on a room. Looking for a place to chill-out? Use a baby-blue hue or an indigo.  Accent a room with a blue throw, rug or lamp shade. You could even try blue lights.

No matter what color you choose remember to use it wisely. You never want too much of a good thing.
