When you go to the hospital things are scary enough. The surroundings are strange, it smells bad and visually, it’s just cayotic. Wouldn’t it be nice if hospitals really took the time out to choose the right colors for their rooms – healing colors to be exact.
Is it coastal colors that we want to see in the hospital? Should we be surrounded by the blues and greens to help us “calm?”
What about colors that are barely there so they just blend instead of grabbing our attention? Would that feel good?
Or what about warm hues that remind us of the sun? That should feel good right?
Or may be just youthful colors to bring us back to a fun time and place such as our childhood?
or the colors of yesterday to tap into a memory of house and home.
or should hospitals and doctors offices have just one generic color thought out? How many times have we seen this pukey shade of green right? Horrible.
THESE are some colors I’d like to see in our Doctors offices and Hospitals – color – all colors.
When will hospitals dive deep into the Holistic approach? You may not believe it just yet but color has that power. The power of visuals, the power of color.
I’d also love to see Healing Rooms where people are placed in rooms of color to heal. Yea this is out there but who knows, maybe one day when medial expenses get so high and people can’t afford to get sick maybe they’ll start self-healing at home to keep themselves in good health. Color, try it – it works.
You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something which I believe I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me. I am having a look ahead to your next post, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
Alex, for me, yes this topic is very easy and luckily, comes naturally to me. How? Why? Several reasons.
I’ve been working with color for over 30 years. I’ve experienced the EMOTIONAL reactions that people have towards some colors. For example, “oh I LOVE that color!!! It reminds me of xyz.” Or, “I do NOT want that color in my house! It looks like baby poop and I’ve been there done that” and I quote that last line by the way.
Secondly, I have extensive training in the Chakra system. Chakra are the energy centers in our body and when they are out of balance, our body already will let us know in the form of pain either emotionally, mentally or physically.
Both these scenarios can be addressed with color … and that is what I do here.
I hope this answers some of your questions Alex.
