Color affects us psychologically. Warm colors – such as red, yellow and orange – can spark a variety of emotions that range from comfort and warmth to hostility and anger. Cool colors – such as green, blue and purple – often spark feelings of calmness as well as sadness.
When selecting their top colors, paint companies gather insights from pop culture, fashion, architecture and technology trends.

You might pair Aqua Fiesta with a cool gray to create a spa-like vibe in your bathroom.
