The wrong paint colors!
Paint colors have a great psychological effect on our mood and habits. For example, some bright shades like red, orange, brown and fiery tones are more stimulating and active. Green and blue colors are relaxing, and off-white, grey and beige colors are neutral.
It’s important to choose the color you love, rather than choosing something trendy which is going against your nature. The decision of choosing the right paint colors also depends on the overall style and design of your home.
Therefore, choose the colors wisely and make sure every color has some positive impact on your feelings and making you feel more active rather than tired and depressed.

Lacking abstract art to soothe your nerves:
Abstract art or soothing sceneries eventually put great impacts on your mood, especially when you come home after a tiring and busy day.
