As the snow pulls back to reveal vibrant green grass it is easy to see why in so many cultures green has been a symbol of balance, peace and ecology.
Green has one of the shortest wavelengths in the spectrum making it the least visually demanding colours for our brains to interpret. This is why designers often use it in areas of relaxation. It is no coincidence that the room actors rest in is called “The Green Room”.
However, a little word of warning. If you are painting your walls choose your shade of green carefully as some stronger greens can cast a green hue on your skin making you look rather unwell – not the desired effect!
Listening to Tom Waits , while feasting my eyes on some natural foliage the regenerative properties of green are working for me…happy Monday!
