Here is a snippet from an article from Entrepreneur.com that talks about the addition of particular colors that promote productivity and positivity.
According to a study by the University of Texas at Austin, colors can affect behaviors and emotions. Taskworld, a task and project management platform, and HOK, an architecture and interior design firm, suggest specific traits that are commonly associated with colors:
• Pink reduces feelings of irritation, aggression and loneliness.
• Red increases heart rate and blood flow while improving attention and energy.
• Orange boosts self-esteem and enthusiasm.
• Yellow heightens productivity, creativity, alertness, and clarity.
• Green decreases fatigue and promotes efficiency.
• Blue enhances feelings of calmness, stability, trust, and loyalty while encouraging creativity and focus.
Take advantage of the positive effects of colors in your workspace by intentionally selecting different colors to help reinforce specific feelings and behaviors. If you often feel anxious while working, leading to procrastination, paint the walls of your office a nice, calming blue with yellow or green flourishes. If you work in a cubicle or if painting is not an option, you can still utilize these principles to furnish and accessorize your area for maximum comfort and productivity.
