Think of your emotional reaction when you conjure up images of magenta stilettos or a cherry red sports car or an exotic room like below. Red sends really strong messages that just cannot be ignored. And why is that?
Studies show that people in who spend time in red rooms have increased body temperature, blood pressure, and heart rate… and an increased appetite as well. And it’s not only our appetite for food but all appetites: drinking and lust and sex and spending money. Watch out the next time you’re on a shopping spree or lounging in a bordello!
Red flatters to our skin tones and as such is an excellent choice where we want to see our best image-like the bath or powder room.
