RED is out because it can raise blood pressure, create heat and stimulate anger and rage.
ORANGE is optimistic, but too much can cause frustration and irritability. And I’ve got enough of that to go around.

GREEN is both refreshing and cleansing, bringing about calmness. Sounds good. But this sustainability-mania is forcing the color down all of our throats.
BLUE can be peaceful or depressing, depending on the shade. It can help anxiety and reduce the volume of phlegm. Bonus!
PURPLE can have a spiritual effect. But God probably doesn’t care what color I paint the office.
