Bonjour from Campagne Maison
RED excites the emotions and motivates us to take action. It signifies a pioneering spirit with leadership qualities, ambition, and determination. RED can give confidence to people who are shy and lack will power.
RED boosts our physical energy levels, increases our heart rate and blood pressure and prompts the release of adrenalin. RED being the color of physical movement awakens our life force, stimulating deeper and more intimate passions, such as love and sex on the positive side OR revenge and anger on the negative. Often used to express love--as on Valentine's Day--it actually relates more to the passions of sexuality and lust rather than love.
RED stimulates the appetite and is often used in restaurant decor, increasing a craving for food.
RED can cause irritation, is fast moving and requires a need for action. RED is an attention-getter, demands you to take notice, and alerts you to danger. This is why we have RED traffic lights and stop signs - it is the universal color for danger. RED has a powerful effect on the assertiveness and aggressiveness of everyone.
