  Often whilst working with clients, I notice the colours in certain rooms (especially in the bedrooms) and note comments from clients on how they are feeling.

I often tell them to change the room colour to blue to help bring them calmness (to help them sleep) and to ensure there are less arguments with their loved ones.  Whilst red may be bad in the bedroom, it is great for the dining room to enable a lively appetite Read More
