Music with a starter course and a can of paint? Yep, you read that right…
So what’s this all about? First things first: let’s discuss music and how it plays into our everyday lives. Your favorite song that you play over and over again. The song that reminds you of summer nights or your first kiss. The playlist that tells the story of your life. The song that helped you get through your first breakup. If that’s not enough to remind you of the impact that music has on our lives, new research shows that it can impact your food and your personal space too!
How, you ask?
You’re about to move into your new college apartment and the first thing you want to do to claim your space is paint the walls. Now the big question comes into play… how will you choose between that light grey color or the cool mint green?
Kelly-Moore Paints teamed up with researchers at UC Berkeley on The Sound of Color project to help consumers display their feelings through color in their personal space. Check out how they translate music and color correlations into paint palettes!
If you love throwback hits like Nirvana’s Smells like Teen Spirit and want to evoke a sense of nostalgia then light purple is your color. Or maybe Beyoncé’s Crazy In Love has you feeling a little romantic… then swap the purple for pink.

Don’t want to have your feelings on the wall quite yet? Then check out:
(Dis)Play That Song was created by Barcelona-based creative designer Hendrik Hohenstein who developed an app that converts song lyrics into a pattern of graphic elements and color. The project not only allows people to see what their favorite songs look like, but also provides a different medium through which to discover new music.
And to top it all off… studies reveal that sound can affect and even enhance the taste of your food and suggest songs people should play while enjoying them.
