    No worries! I got your point. I thought there is a room for expressing an opinion and share a (copy & Paste) thought. Obviousely I was wrong. I do apologize. Have a lovely day.

    • I appreciate your comment about colors and appetite and I have known about their association. I was just confused when you said you disagreed – because I couldn’t see who you were disagreeing with.

  2. I actually disagree. Some colors are known to evoke hunger, and others are known to suppress appetite. It’s important for restaurants to use the right colors to put customers in a comfortable mood while dining at the restaurant.
    Here is a short guide to which colors restaurants should use and which colors to avoid.

    Colors to use

    Red: In the restaurant industry, red is king. Have you ever noticed that most, if not all, fast food franchises use red in their logos? While red isn’t baby-friendly, it’s a very valuable tool in drawing attention and getting people to crave food. It’s associated with impulsiveness and excitement. Most importantly, red makes people hungry.

    Orange: Like red, orange is associated with energy and excitement. If you walk into a fast food franchise, you’d be likely to see red and orange everywhere. It’s no accident, since those two colors encourage people to eat quickly and leave. Orange is a very vibrant, lively color. Even though there’s nothing calm about orange, it’s still a warm color that makes people comfortable… and hungry.

    Yellow: When you see yellow, your brain actually releases more seratonin (a chemical in the brain that makes you feel good). Yellow is a color that makes everyone feel good. The more optimistic a person feels, the more likely he will splurge on drinks, dessert, and a hearty meal.

    Green: Nowadays, green is associated with growth, nature, and wellness. Many organic food products use green in their packaging. Green is also a calming color. Green walls in a restaurant dining room gives off the message that the food is healthy and wholesome, and they also make the place look more welcoming.

    Brown: Much like green, brown is most associated with reliability, friendship, and wellness. It’s the color of the earth itself. Any shade of brown works great as an accent. Be careful not to overuse the color, though. A logo, menu, website, or dining room that’s primarily brown may send off a negative message, because brown can also represent filth.

    Gold: Gold symbolizes prestige and good health. Many fancy restaurants use gold moderately. Using too much gold can make a restaurant come off as tacky, so be careful.

    Colors to avoid

    Research has suggested that people prefer to consume food in a room painted in warm colors rather than cold colors. Unnatural colors, such as blue, pink, and yellow-green, suppress appetite because they’re associated with rotten, spoiled, and toxic foods.

    Blue: Most foods aren’t blue, so the color serves as an appetite suppressant. Actually, many weight loss companies, exercise and diet programs, and gyms use the color blue to help people lose weight!

    Black: Black is the color of mystery, so people tend not to trust the food ordered from a primarily black menu. The color is also associated with negativity and authority. It can work great as an accent, but too much black may easily overwhelm your customers.

    Yellow-green: While yellow and green individually work great to stimulate hunger in people, combining those colors is a huge no-no. Yellow-green is an unnatural color that’s usually associated with toxic chemicals.

    Pink: A variant of red, pink doesn’t make people hungry. It’s an unnatural color that symbolizes romance, love, and gentle feelings. However, when it comes to food, pink can conjure up images of raw meat, artificial preservatives, and a slew of other gross images.

    • I’m not exactly sure who you are disagreeing with. The only comments and my commentary only said that this decor is beautiful – we didn’t say anything about appetite. I still think the decor looks elegant and tasteful despite what you copied and pasted.

    I’d like to see the food on the table. Bet it is delicious.

    It looks very warm and inviting. Add good food to that and you’ve got a winner. Great place for a family to dine in luxury and privacy.
