What are colours?

Colour is the visual perceptual property corresponding in humans to the categories called red, blue, yellow, green and others. They are everywhere we look. They are either warm,cold or shades .

Warm colours

The colours of red, orange, and yellow are considered warm colours because they are the colours of fire. These hues are also said to advance, meaning they appear to come forward, making the walls feel closer. Thus, they can actually make a room feel cosy when used in decorating.
