GOLD

– releases negativity and supports intense healing. Golden Yellow creates warmth. Golden Brown calms emotions, balances the mind and also harmonizes thoughts and is good for grounding. In interior decoration, a soft warm colour based on yellow, or orange is used where activity is to take place and works very well in dinning rooms, lounges, studies and offices, since this colour stimulates conversation, digestion and a harmonious family atmosphere.
