Using the colour in interiors of shops, hotels also attracts a lot of customers.

Green For Happiness and Healing: Don't you feel pleasant and fresh when you are surrounded by greenery. The same principle applies to the colour. Just as we say nature is healing, green induces positive feelings and happiness in a person. So you could get indoor plants in your homes to add a dash of the colour indoors.

Silver For Opportunities: Silver is one of the most precious metals today. In some folklore, it is linked to protection from the evil. But the colour symbolizes trust, purity and new opportunities. Surround yourself in silvery hues or wear a silver jewelry on the New Year's Eve to attract newer and better opportunities your way.

Yellow For Hope: Yellow is such a vibrant colour that it attracts cheerfulness. And at this point, every person is craving a bit of cheer and hope for the next year.
