Carefully choosing paint, wall hangings, and accessories based on color characteristics will help you create exactly the mood you desire for any room in your home or office.

In this series, Boomers Know How will look at what colors mean, and how various colors influence our lives.

The color green brings a sense of tranquility and peace, balance and harmony. We see green spaces as sanctuaries of wellbeing.

Green in our environment has the power to relax us both mentally and physically by calming our emotions.

Green is the color of healing; green surroundings help alleviate depression, nervousness, and anxiety.

Green is the most prominent color in nature thus symbolizing renewal, spring and growth.
