Orange is a bright and cheerful color that has been shown to enhance communication, and socialization. Children who play in rooms with orange color schemes tend to be more cooperative, extroverted, and confident. Of course, as with any warm color, too much orange can be overstimulating, and wind up having the opposite effect. While orange may bring out the chatty side of a shy child, too much orange may overwhelm them and cause them to feel irritable and not at all like being friendly. Orange is best used as an accent color, especially the softer shades of orange. Try pairing orange with soft shades of green, lavender, or a neutral cream color.
It′s not just the choice of colors but the combination of colors which aids memory. Opting for shades that create an eye‐catching contrast is more visually stimulating and helps the brain to retain information. Generally speaking, the higher the level of contrast the more attention‐grabbing a piece of work will be. Just keep in mind that too many colors can be both chaotic and distracting, while too much of one color can have an adverse effect on memory recall too much yellow, for instance, is known to provoke headaches which is the last thing your child needs whilst revising.
Combining colors, therefore, is all about balance. Basic color theory makes use of the color wheel to give examples of harmonious schemes. A complementary color scheme uses two colors from opposite sides of the wheel – such as yellow and purple – and should be used to highlight the difference between two things. An analogous scheme uses three colors next to one another (such as red, red violet and red orange), with one being the dominant color (red). This color scheme can be used to make something stand out, using the dominant color for the most important information.
