One of the main motivations of this research is to develop an adaptable Virtual Reality (VR) model whose color can be changed dynamically according to the identified emotional state of a user. This paper addresses how to capture a specific user's emotion through the web and use it for modifying VR model mainly for color adaptation. This adaptation process of a VR model consists of three phases: 1) identification of the user's emotional state projected onto the selected paintings, 2) translation of those captured emotional keywords into a pertinent set of color coordinations, and finally, 3) automated color adaptation process for the given VR model. In this paper, we introduced a method of using well-known paintings and their variations to derive an on-line viewer's emotional state which can be utilized to find a new color scheme reflecting the identified emotion. This color harmony scheme can provide a useful information for a dynamic color coordination for the objects embedded in the given VR model. The outcome of this study could enable an interactive and dynamic VR model supporting emotion-responsive interior design simulations or the visionary scenario of the architectural environment where interior colors are changed according to the captured mood of the occupant.
