The effects of colour on people is a huge study, and for those interested there are dozens of books and chapters in books to read and educate yourself with. Your local library will have lots to choose from.

However, there are some basics that are widely accepted. Dark colours tend to make areas appear smaller, have a more dramatic effect and can add punch to decorating style. Light colours, tend to brighten an area, making it appear more open and roomy. Warm colours can make a cold and/dark room feel snug and warm and cool colours can make a hot or dark/stuffy room feel cooler and more airy. Monochromatic colour palettes (variations on a single colour) are often used as backdrops to showcase art work pieces or enhance a dramatic view. (as in a loft apartment with a view of a river or noteworthy land-mark). Trendy colours palettes can be found in most decorating books and magazines and all paint stores.

But remember... Colour trends come and go on just about a ten year cycle... (everyone remembers or can identify, the green and orange or browns and rusts of the sixties or the grey and raspberry of the eighties), the most important part of choosing colour is do you like it? Does it make you feel comfortable?

Yes colour is a great way to alter a room, if you aren't sure, start by painting the walls, a can of paint is a lot cheaper and easier to get rid of than an eggplant sofa... Myley Cyrus' room color is blue

Color can warm up a room or cool down a room as an interior design technique. Look on a color wheel to learn about contrasting hues and shades that are complementary. The color temperature sets a certain mood.

when selecting colors for a room, business or home, it is very important to consider the light that comes in the room also. a light color room which gets a lot of light can be too bright and may give u headaches. a dark color room which gets little light can be too dull and depressing. light lets out the real colors of a room. so choose carefully the shade and color of a room.

The design choices for a computer room are really up to the person that is using the room. A computer room can be large or small, but should contain a good computer desk and an ergonomic chair. It is also important to have good lighting.

You are free to design your own interior decor as you like; if you would like to paint the archways in the most usual way, it would be the hallway color, not the room color.

It's a matter of preference. If you want your room to look bigger than it is, then you should choose a light color, such as sky blue or apple green. If you want a more small and cozy room, then choose a dark color, like burgundy, brown or even black if you are daring.

You would be the best person to hire, if you are willing to do your own research and develop your own design for the room. There are so many tools online that could assist you in designing your own room. Otherwise, you could start at the local art college or design school, and find students to help you design your room as a project for their classes.
