Abstract : It has long been alleged that the paint used in workspaces -- and especially the color of paint -- affects human performance. The general conclusions of a rather extensive literature survey are summarized. It is recommended that pleasing colors be used, even though no one seems to have proved that colors do or do not affect performance. Brightness and saturation are briefly considered. Sets of colors are suggested which would be appropriate for highlevel and for low-level illuminations. (Author)
