You want the color that best complements your upholstery, artwork, rug and whatever else. You can pick that color only if your stuff is actually inside your home. Give your furniture some breathing room. Resist overcrowding a room. Gracious living means space to maneuver with ease. This is really great news if you are working with a tight budget.
You also have an innate reaction to color. For example, when you look at red, it does increase your heart rate. It is a stimulating color. This goes back to caveman days of fire and danger and alarm. You also have learned certain associations with color, such as red making your heart race since it is linked with fire trucks and ambulances, in other words, alarm, or yellow having positive association simply because it was the color of your beloved grandmothers kitchen.
