Do bright colors painted on walls affect people in a positive way?
I guess that would depend on the colour. If you paint four walls bright red, don't expect it to bring peace and harmony. In fact I suspect that bright colours need to be used to be used pretty judicially. Okay for a feature wall, maybe. But pastels of just about any shade seem to be more conducive to a home one can relax in. Also, they make the room seem bigger.
A hint - something I learned long ago. Take a bright colour, say, red or blue. A little piece about as big as a coin will do. Place it on a white background. Stare at the colour until you find you can't really comfortably look at it any longer. Then whip it away and look at the same spot where that coloured piece was. After a second or so it's exact complimentary colour will appear. For example, if you use blue, the compensatory colour will be yellow.
Now, if you paint adjacent walls with each colour (meeting at the corners of the room) you'll find it seems to provide a cheerful and harmonious room set.
Try it. But mix in plenty of white paint with the colours you eventually choose. Don't have them too dark or too bright. I think you'll find this an answer to what you seek re colour.
This is an interesting question; one that has some significant research to consider. The color coined "Drunk Tank Pink" has proved to have a calming effect on prisoners; although some research challenges its calming influence after a certain time period has passed.
I would text, that the most significant effect of any color on people would be the association of the particular color on the person's psychological make-up. The psychological make-up being the past incidences with that particular color. In my instance, I am attracted to opaque white with a tinge of blue, it reminds me of hockey ice.
One could conclude that bright colors may have a positive effect; however, there will be exceptions if people have developed negative associations with that particular color. One could assume that eventually "Drunk Tank Pink" will indeed eventually have a negative association with prisoners, especially repeat offenders since the color will be paired/associated with prison, hopefully a place no one wants to be in.
