MISCONCEPTION OF THE COLOUR WHITE 2

All colours are BIPOLAR, and all colours will have positive and negative influences, which will affect people, sometimes more than we realize. Our bodies don’t forget what those influences has done to it over time, and will eventually react on it, maybe not immediately, but definitely eventually.  THE SCARY PART IS, THAT IT STARTS FROM THE DAY YOU ARE BORN!

It is crucial to understand the working between colour and the human being, we have to accept and understand their science working and connection.

The biggest problem with colour design is, that we think we see a colour and that’s that. WE DON’T SEE A COLOUR, WE EXPERIENCE IT.

All WHITES are not equal……. and that is particular true with paint colour. They are available in a wealth of “whites”, varying touches of yellow, green, blue, brown or gray to turn them into a huge cast of interesting shades.

White biggest and maybe only positive side is, that they are considered timeless. Unfortunately, their negative influences are ignored, they are hard clinical and stress colours, and their use should be considered carefully.

White is a dominant colour and destroy most designs if used wrongly.

White’s  reaction to bright light is unconsciously scaring.

White is not only an extremely noticeable colour, but also a hard colour.

White ceilings will always be the dominant feature in a room.

White is the colour with the possible highest influence on the human being’s STRESS . Had architects and designers adhered to recommended light-reflection levels of walls, the use of white and off whites might never have come about.

White walls/ceilings, as we know, are an optical strain and psychological hazard.

But why are they with Neutral colours, so popular? Because they are wrongly considered as easy colours that should fit in any design, ideal colours for those who are scared of colours.

Remember, colour is light, and light changes colour, but light and colour(LRV) can also be a health problem and are considered by means of STRESS as the biggest enemy of the human being.
