Green is the symbol of nature, birth, cheerfulness and health. It is the colour of peace and balance. It lowers high blood pressure, calms down the nervous system, alleviates stress and tiredness, and some research have confirmed that it is beneficial for migraine and exhaustion. A room painted in green shades invites for welcome and has a calming and balancing effect. It is ideal for kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, and rooms used for relaxing and rest. Since green improves concentration and thinking, it is often dominant in work rooms and rooms used for learning. Green belongs to the group of cool colours, so designers recommend adding some details in warm colours (red and orange) to the room as the balance.
