Colour is a complex language in its own right, communicating with us on a visual, symbolic and cultural level. From the red and green of city traffic lights, to the rainbow plumage of a peacock’s tail, colour in the natural and man-made world is loaded with meaning. In fact, colour plays such a powerful role in our lives that concepts like colour psychology and colour therapy have become increasingly popular. Colour can have a big impact on your emotions and state of mind; this in turn affects your physical state and your overall wellbeing. That means that simply by surrounding yourself with particular colour on the spectrum, you can give your mood – and overall health – a real boost! Whether you’re decorating your home, beautifying your workspace or simply choosing what to wear, certain colour palettes can work wonders for the atmosphere you create. Let’s take a look at the secret language of the rainbow – what colours mean to us, and how to harness their positive effects.
