Have you ever noticed that a lot of restaurants are painted orange or green? And that many hospitals generally have sterile white walls? There’s a reason behind these color choices: colors have the power to affect our moods. Juicy orange and succulent green—evocative of food from nature—can whet appetites, while pristine white is commonly associated with cleanliness.

Think, then, of the untapped ability of color to create a desired mood in your bedroom. Whether you’re looking for ways to help you sleep at night, to better get you out of bed in the morning, or to give your kids a room that’ll stimulate them, you can achieve the effect you’re after with the right color scheme.
