Kelly-Moore Offers Advice on Selecting the Right Color to Convey Mood
By Bridget Klebaur

As fall approaches and children are heading off to college, there are often empty rooms that inevitably need some sprucing up. Choosing the right color to paint these rooms isn’t always easy, as conveying the mood of the room depends very much on the chosen color.

Mary Lawlor, color stylist, Kelly-Moore's explains that color is everywhere in our environment, and it affects the world we live in, including other colors and the people viewing them. Our energy level is affected by the mood and ambience created by color.

“Creating living areas that allow us to rest and relax are just as important as creating other places that invigorate or stimulate us,” Lawlor said. “Light and color affect our senses. Bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens all serve different needs. Colors can be used to stimulate our senses for relaxing, entertaining and eating.

When updating your home décor for the season, remember color is not only the quickest and most cost effective way to freshen a room, it also influences our moods. There are times when we prefer to "see the world through rose colored glasses". Color in our home can help us do this.”
