I once did a report on color psychology when I was a junior in high school, so yeah, that's my proof that the following information is totally true: Did you know ... the color blue actually causes the body to produce calming chemicals. Fashion consultants recommend wearing blue to a job interview, because it symbolizes loyalty. People are more productive in blue rooms. Studies show weightlifters are able to handle heavier weights in blue gyms. True? Who knows. But blue is unarguably one of the most popular colors, and is especially hot in the world of home decor these days. Check it:
Melanie from MMB Creations found inspiration from the knobs used to redo this curbside dresser, taking if from bad to rad! With plaid! (Sorry, that joke was so lame!)
