“Use color to create comfort, space … Question: What color should my office be if I want to boost productivity? Answer: According to The Color Answer Book by Leatrice Eiseman (Capital Books, $30), there is no one answer to that question. Ms. Eiseman is the founder and director of the Pantone Color Institute and is a color consultant to many industries. She says that if you are evaluating color for your own office, your goal should be to seek out and use colors that raise your comfort level, ones that appeal to you. There is no "formula color that works every time in every situation." Dallas Morning News, 2007/05/14

What People are saying about this

Marylou Luther
"Leatrice Eiseman knows more about the history of color, the psychology of color and the application of color than anyone I have ever interviewed. She can make color interesting to a convent of nuns who only wear black. Perhaps more importantly, she constantly updates the dynamics of color and how it responds to the pop culture, the economy and world events."
