Reds should be avoided in bedrooms, classrooms, and waiting rooms. It may be ok as an accent color, used in extreme moderation. For the most part, though, reds should be used as the base color only in rooms where energy and courage are desired. RED. Physical Positive: Physical courage, strength, warmth, energy, basic survival, 'fight or flight', stimulation, masculinity, excitement. Negative: Defiance, aggression, visual impact, strain.

We have two walls in our office that they colored red and then the rest is gray and white. It gives a nice pop of color in an otherwise colorless room.

I know a lot of people, around here, who would love those colors in their office or home. That is the colors of the college football team- Alabama Crimson Tide. My husband is one of the ones who would think that is awesome. People in the south live for college football.

Colour Affects: your mood, your behaviour, potential clients' perceptions of your company, sales of your product, purchasing decisions, the atmosphere in your home, the atmosphere in your workplace and therefore stress levels and absenteeism.

lol It means the rest of us should watch out. j/k. I have a six year old, red-headed grandbaby. She is a spit-fire. She is my heart. God broke the mold with that one. I can't express how much joy she brings me.

red, orange and yellow tend to be used in food places

You want them in foods. Every color of veggie and fruit has something positive to offer. And there is nothing wrong with decorating with red as long as it is not overpowering or conducive to the atmosphere one wants to create.
