Decorating With Warm Colors

Last week, we talked about decorating with cool colors as part of my series for Color Theory month. This week, we'll heat things up with a discussion of warm colors.

Warm colors, such as red, orange, and yellow, are associated with stimulation, appetite, and warmth. These hues give a room a feeling of closeness, since the colors appear to come forward. They're great to use for establishing a cozy mood in a room.

What warm colors have you used in your home?
