dc.description.abstract <p><a href="">As an interior designer</a>, I’ve long been interested in how different colors can affect our mood and behavior.</p> <p>For example, if you’ve recently been to a fast food restaurant, you might notice that there’s a lot of red – <a href="">red chairs</a> and <a href="">red signs</a>, <a href="">red trays</a> and <a href="">red cups</a>.</p> <p>When, on the other hand, was the last time you ate in a blue restaurant?</p> <p><a href="">There’s a reason for this</a>: Red, it turns out, has been shown to stimulate the appetite. Blue, on the other hand, has been shown to be an appetite suppressant.</p> <p>But when it comes to interior design, the color pink has been particularly controversial.</p> <p>After some psychologists were able to show that certain shades of pink reduced aggression, it was famously used in prison cells to limit aggression in inmates. Yet pink toes a shaky line. Is it a benign means of subtle manipulation? A tool to humiliate? An outgrowth of gender stereotyping? Or some combination of the three?</p>
