It is cleverly branded in a way that next time you see a particular color the brand comes to your mind, and this is termed color psychology. It states that colors can induce emotions and perception in humans. Indeed, it is true that the paint colors of your house have an inevitable impact on the mood. Here are the popular paint color tones and the emotion they represent.  Read and figure out the best colors for your house.
