ColoRED Workspaces

This Wall Street Journal article about how architecture, design and color can influence our moods was a fascinating read.

My office at work is painted a deep heirloom tomato red, which supposedly boosts critical thinking and attention to details, according to journalist Jonah Lehrer. My room/office at home is painted a beautiful sky color, almost a pale periwinkle, and supposedly boosts creativity. The best of both worlds!

What color is your office? Do you notice a difference in how you think depending on where you work? What do other colors make you feel? I’d love to know!
