Italian term or phrase:colori buonumore
The title in design magazine reads-
A Nizza, un albergo urbano firmato da M. Crasset. Colori buonumore e idee ad alta tecnologia.
Can I say pleasant or pleasing colours or does someone have a better suggestion? Thanks!
Explanation: I do agree with cheerful colors. Feel-good colors is just another idea, a variation on the theme.
I think colors that put you in a good mood looses the original simpicity of the expression and is not a common expression, altough not necessarily incorrect.

Things that put you in a good mood are things that cheer you up. With \"cheerful colours\" you gain in directness without loosing content.
Your client should have no difficulty in accepting a less literal translation - if that\'s your concern - once he\'s thought it through.

Explanation: "colours that put you in a good mood" seems far too long a phrase. "Cheerful" usually intends something that may cheer you up, therefore putting you in a good mood.
