The use of warm colors really does fool us into thinking a room feels warmer.
This is not limited strictly to paint, but paint has a (perhaps the most) significant effect.

The warm colors are: red, orange, beige, tan, yellow, thru light green.
And what they’ve done in the picture is excellent, using two different colors helps accentuate the effect (although I would have put the red at the bottom and the yellow at the top).
Why color is such a powerful force to us is not fully understood, but it is not necessary to fully understand this to take advantage of it.
Find an article about the psychology of color, then find the right mix for you in terms of effects.
Knowing you want warm colors simply eliminates cool colors from consideration. There are still a number of different colors for you to choose from and as the effect of color on us is really significant (sports terms dressed in black get more penalties, red placebo pills are more effective than blue placebo pills, etc) it pays to do a little upfront work focusing on your desired affect.
