    “Room Color and How It Affects Your Mood”, written by entrepreneur and Freshome founder and CEO Mihai Cristian Micle tackles how lighting can affet our perception of a place. He shared that a light color like yellow can feel expansive, welcoming and uplifting for kitchens, dining rooms, and bathrooms, but it may not be a good choice for main color schemes, since the color “tends to create feelings of frustration when used in large amounts.” Softer shades of blue, on the other hand, have a calming, relaxing effect.

    Also worth reading is the child safety feature on “Keeping Your Home Safe for Your Baby.

    The article offers lots of tips for parents and guardians who must ensure that exploring, curious kids stay safe and unhurt throughout the house. Choose your children’ toys well; install wall-mounted baby gates at the top and bottom of the stairs; wind up appliance cords and keep them out of reach; and keep medicines, small items like toy batteries, cleaning supplies away from tykes’ reach.
