Possibly, as the research for the psychology of color varies. Color and the emotions that they evoke can be personal, based on your own experiences or your culture. Warm colors red, orange and yellow may evoke feelings ranging from warmth and comfort to anger. Cool colors, blue, purple and green may evoke feelings of calm, sadness or indifference.
