Goodbye red. Hello blue.
Remember when I was so proud of myself for purchasing a red area rug? Well, it turns out, my red aversion is still going strong. I blame Van Gogh, or my mother (I love you Mom), or my own rebellious tendencies, or my emotional attachment to colour, or my emotional attachment to everything.
Mr. G and Mr. L are enjoying their new cosy bedtime arrangement. Hopefully I don't pass on my red aversion (although mine was most definitely not inherited).
The psychological effect of colour is an interesting topic, often discussed, but difficult to to scientifically support due to personal preferences, and due to our personal feelings about colour being rooted to our cultural upbringing. Warm colours can evoke feelings of love, passion, happiness, or anger, hostility, stress. Cool colours tend to evoke feelings of calm, coolness, peace, or sadness, indifference, cold. 85% of consumers cite colour as the primary reason that they buy a product. Restaurants, hospitals, airports, most public spaces, have colours selected to create the optimal experience, whatever that may be. Colour to make you eat more, colour to make you buy more, colour to help you relax.
I really do love all colours. Even red. Just not in my room apparently.
Sneak peek. I have been painting! Do you recognize this lady? My kids sure did!
