We know that certain colours can *speak* to us more than others, influencing the way we feel and affecting our mood. But have you ever wondered why we have such a powerful reaction to colour? Thanks to the study of colour psychology, the impact of colour and its association with emotion has been widely researched. Green has often been affiliated with nature and new beginnings, offering a sense of security and peace.
Tash explains how this calming hue has become increasingly popular since the rise of biophilic design, the concept of designing a home for your wellbeing:
As biophilic design has been built on the concept of biophilia, the innate human attraction to nature and all that is alive, green is often the first colour that comes to mind when creating a home that reconnects you with the outdoors. But how can bringing green into your space positively impact your wellbeing?
If you’re looking to create a restful bedroom scheme, take Tash’s advice and introduce shades of sage green. You could transform your room with Lick’s range of grounding green paints, add accents of green with houseplants or invest in our brand new Bodyclock Luxe 750DAB wake-up light in Sage! Not only does the latest addition to the Lumie family complete a calming green scheme, it also improves your sleep and overall wellbeing.
Just like our ancestors synchronised their body clock to the natural rising and setting of the sun, Lumie wake-up lights slowly send you to sleep with a fading sunset and rouse you from sleep with a gentle sunrise. This gradual light helps your brain to distinguish day and night in our modern world of technology, alarms and unusual working hours. Say goodbye to your phone's harsh alarm and hello to a restful sleep environment!
