All the so-called cold colours have blue in them. The usual rule is that the more blue, the colder the colour; the more red or, to a lesser extent, yellow, the warmer. (So orange is a very warm colour.)

Green is a cold colour, especially the bluish greens such as turquise and sea green; very yellowish greens, like lime, are warmer. Purples are more tricky because they are a mixture of the hottest and the coldest primary colour. The more blue, the colder the colour; so mauve and violet are cold; while crimson, which has only a hint of blue, is hot.

Black and white, while strictly neither hot nor cold, in practice have a cold effect. Certainly, if someone generally looks better in cold colours, they will often find that they also look good in black and white; or grey, which is definitely cold.

Cold colours present at the blue end or green of the spectrum signify a cool atmosphere. Colours can inspire us, arouse us, make us feel cold, make us feel angry, make us feel irritated, cause us grief, make us feel happy and even cause us to feel spiritually inclined. The frequencies, energy, power, vibration and subtlety of each colour has the tendency to affect us both psychologically and physiologically. Cold and warm colours can have an impact on factors like weight, distance and time. Astronomers deduce the temperature of a star by its colour.

Typical warm colours are light pinks, light ambers, golden tints, straw colours, etc while the cold colours are light greens, bluish hues etc. In a play or movie, the "warm light" signifies romances and humour. The "cold light" represents horrors, thrillers and tragedies. In a nut-shell, warm colours are more stimulating while colours are tranquilizing or calming. No wonder, cold colours are used for lecture rooms, congregations while warm colours are used for cafeterias and restaurants.
