According to environmental psychologists, the colors with which we surround ourselves really do have a dramatic effect on our moods, emotions, and overall wellness. It is called chromotherapy {or color therapy}. Being a color-lover myself, I feel better already knowing that a few extra jewel tones and some bright accents might be just what the doctor ordered!

    My good friend Emily is great w this concept. She’s a yellow girl and her home is so inspiring. I decided to go with it and chose orange for our family room and yellow for the master. I couldn’t lock myself into one. But I think it’s really fun and helpful in decorating.
