Colours are basically what our eyes perceive when material surfaces respond to light exposure. Many studies confirm the human unconscious and instinctive reaction to colours. According to these studies, our brain associates a different meaning to each colour,
causing a particular state of emotion.

The psychology of colours is quite interesting. Some scientists say, that with the help of psychology of colours we may identify the character of a person. Moreover, there is a belief, that colours have a great influence on our mood, choices, actions and many other different things in our life.
I`d like to introduce some most acceptable for me descriptions of colours.

red: danger, passion, energy, warmth, adventure, optimism
pink: love
orange: stability, reassurance, warmth and is thought to aid digestion
green: nature and energy, calming and restful, balance (halfway between red and blue)
blue: calming and soothing, promotes intellectual thought, believed to keep hunger at bay; loyalty, serenity, authority, protection, contemplative, prevents nightmares
yellow: sunshine and energy, stimulates the intellect
lilac: spiritual matters - suggests the misty area between the sky and heaven, feminine
purple: creativity, fertility, joy, but also magic, evil, death and sex
brown: security, stability and very practical
black: death, eccentricity, drama. it's a on-colour that absorbs colour and reflects nothing back. info source:
