COLOR is no longer chosen intuitively. We now know that color affects us both physically and psychologically, that an environment that utilizes color from the complete spectrum is healthier; that color perception varies with our age, our gender and our cultural background; that color can alter our perception of space and time.
We know that LIGHT is essential for all living organisms; that light affects our Arcadian rhythms; and that certain light waves can balance our internal and external systems; that careful selection of artificial light sources is critical to visual comfort. We have always known the renewal of our spirit from nature; however now research confirms that views of nature enable patients to heal sooner.
“There is no way of telling people that they are all
walking around Shining like the Sun.” Thomas Merton
