Warm to Cool / Cool to Warm - Opposites Attract in Nature's Role Reversal

Add caption
Soon as we move from warm Summer to the cool Fall and Winter something odd happens.  We designers & humans in general crave the opposite.  In colors, that is. For example check out the walls  I found at my local Bally Fitness gym.  The blue mosaic tiles feel like a welcome cool relief from our sometimes brutal NY summers!  Yet the warming yellow / orange -terracotta tones are what we seek in the the dead of winter.  But I'm not quite ready to let go of my blue relief just yet, are you??
