This is the reason why you must be extremely conscious of the colors that you are using in the house. But why is color that important? It is because color always has some kind of personality and each color depicts a different kind of mood and lends a personality to the room itself. Let’s understand this with the help of a few examples. After you have had a long day at work, where you were overstressed because an important project was going to end or where you had to work overtime, what would you prefer? Would you like to sit in a room that is painted in green or would you prefer a room that is painted in red? Of course, you would chose the first room.

Second, you have to focus on the color of the furniture. Third, you need to focus on the color of the rest of furnishings, decorative items as well as draping.
