Mood Boosting Colors

Taste and preferences in home décor may vary, but it seems that you may want to consider using certain colors as accents around the home, because they can actually help boost your mood and make you happier.

Turns out, those colors that can encourage positive emotions are yellow and green — and there is scientific evidence to back it up. According to research done at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, Netherlands, one study showed that adults felt happier when in the presence of yellow and green. Since these two colors remind us of sunshine and grassy green fields, we're not surprised at these findings. After all, numerous studies also suggest that spending time in nature helps to fight depression.
