Recently, PLOS One came out with a study that proved Mrs Plath’s hypothesis. From reducing blood pressure, to helping with attention, to negating the effects of anxiety, nature is extremely beneficial to our collective health. Which makes sense, nature consists of interlocking fragile pieces, with each one essential to the existence and the of the others, and like it or not, we are part of it.
True ColorsJackie Jordan, director of color marketing for Sherwin Williams, has determined the most calming colors that the paint behemoth has to offer. It’s probably no coincidence that colors found abundantly in nature take the lead, with Soft Blues, Gray Blues, Aqua Blues, and Pale Greens within the top four.
Conversely, it should come as no surprise that creatures in nature use bright, flashy colors to disrupt the environment around them, whether it’s to attract a mate or scare away predators. Colors such as bright yellows, reds, and oranges raise heart-rate and blood pressure.
