People are painting their walls more now — and these are their go-to colors
Multiple paint companies say that they've seen an increase in sales in recent months, especially online, with many shoppers gravitating toward neutral colors, as well as muted blues and greens. "Color does play a very significant part, whether it's on a conscious level or a subconscious level, in how we feel in general," said Dr. Mohab Ibrahim, an associate professor of anesthesiology and pharmacology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson. "For example, if you look at many of the fast food places, you'll notice that the predominant color will be yellow, orange, a little reddish. That's because the fast food industry has actually done some research about what colors stimulate the appetite."
