This picture gallery demonstrates the vibrant colors of our Central New York workspace--from the red wall in the lobby at Townsquare Media in Utica, to the bright yellow in one of our conference rooms, and the purple shade we chose for one of the walls in the office we share.

Colors are powerful. They identify countries. They accentuate advertising. They make great art. They enrich our lives. And sometimes they can even be destructive. According to an article in FreshHome.com, the color of the walls in your home or office can affect your mood, as the pictures of us above suggest.

Red pumps up the excitement, it draws people together and stimulates conversation. In an entryway, it creates a strong first impression.

Yellow is an upbeat color, but research has suggested people are more likely to lose their temper in a yellow interior. And babies also seem to cry more in yellow rooms. The color can create feelings of frustration and anger.

Blues and Greens are calming, relaxing and peaceful, and often work well in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Purple is associated with luxury and creativity and brings a restfulness without the chilly feeling some blues can give off.

Now you can go check our gallery again and see if our mood matches the color in each shot. What colors move YOU?
