How the Psychology of Color Can Transform Your Life

💋 Waitresses who wear red lipstick get more tips than those who don’t.

🎀 Some jail cells around the world are painted in a particular shade of pink to relax inmates.

🦋 Do you ever wonder why so many financial businesses use blue in their logos? The color is associated with trustworthiness and integrity.

🍊 The color orange was named AFTER the fruit. It’s first known usage in the English language dates back to 1512. Before that, people used the word geoluread to describe the color, which translates to yellow-red.

I have always been fascinated by the psychology of color. It perfectly melds my professional passions of design, psychology, and marketing. The past year and a half, in particular, has professionally, personally, emotionally, and physically draining, and this book clearly explained to me why I’d been drawn to emerald green as my favorite color as of late.

The answer?

Not only is emerald my birthstone, but this hue of green offers balance and harmony between the mind, body, and soul — which is something I’ve been DESPERATELY CRAVING for MONTHS now, even before this quarantine started. 😩 Cue emerald green blankets, jewelry, clothing and more. “The Little Book of Color: How to Use the Psychology of Color to Transform Your Life” by Karen Haller will become my lifeline, and I’m excited to read more to see what’s in store.
