Choosing the right color scheme is the first step. However, selecting the right color of paint, wallpaper, or carpet – a color that will deliver the desired results – is not so easy. All too often, a color that looks ideal on a small paint sample explodes into a different color when you apply it to a wall. A subdued light champagne yellow paint color may turn into a screeching sour lemon yellow on the walls, an olive carpet winds up brown, and a very light tint of any paint color turns out white. “Color Voodoo for the Office” includes a full section of guidelines for color predictability for furniture, paint, wall covering and flooring.
Here are some questions that this e-book answers:
Does your favorite color matter? How important is personal preference when designing a productive work environment?
Can colors raise your blood pressure? Can colors calm you? What’s the story behind “Drunk Tank Pink?”
Is your office is too hot or too cold, too dry or too damp? Can the right colors alter your experience of the environmental factors?
What’s the most irritating color for any critical task environment? What’s the most restful color for the human eye?
