What are soothing colors?

I want to paint my invalid mother's room.

I would highly recommend the colors of lilac or lavendar as these are proven soothing colors on the eyes. I also recommend adding lavendar flowers. If you could have hints of yellow coloring like a lampshade or pictures with yellow, this would also represent sunshine and be soothing to the spirit.

For a soothing color scheme look to nature. A nice sky blue or a light green similar to the leaves on a maple tree. These colors are inherently soothing and also coordinate easily with most flooring colors and many, many fabrics.
