Color Your Life And Improve Your World
Have you changed clothes more than once in the morning because you're looking for the color that harmonizes with your mood or complexion on a given day? Have you ever felt revulsed by or attracted to a color? If so, you're closely attuned to the physiological effect color has on all of us often in our subconscious.
