You may love a white room, but did you know you may be inadvertently making a room less cozy and too sterile with too much white? Or that green is the perfect choice for an entryway because it eases the transition from the outdoors?

Modern color psychology dates back to its origins in the early 19th century with a scholarly book known as Theory of Colors. Though there is some debate regarding the implications of certain shades, researchers, interior designers and marketing professionals seem to agree on these basic tenants:
