There are Yin and Yang colors in Feng Shui which is the most basic classification.

Yin colors are those colors that stand for relaxation and healing. Examples of Yin colors are black, white, purple, blue, green and pink.

Usage: These colors are ideal for the bedroom as they cause a sense of calmness to prevail in the room helping you to sleep better.

Yang Colors

Yang colors are those which represent energy and enthusiasm. Examples of Yang colors are red, yellow, orange, maroon, etc.

Usage: These colors are ideal for rooms where you want a lot of energy for example if you want to make a room more energetic and lively, you can add a splash of yang colors. These colors in the bedroom at times might cause trouble in sleeping properly as they tend to make the environment more energetic.
