The pyramid school views cultural interpretation and physiological reaction to a condition in the physical world as important Sight
Seeing is believing is an adage that underscores how important we consider our visual world. So much of our information is processed through our eyes, yet sight is not absolute. We see
What we know and learn to see what is familiar.
A child's initial visual connection to the world, for example, is his or her caregiver, And very few other visual details will manifest themselves in a way that the child understands. In the same way that a child will not recognize different people until they become known, you may not identify the shape of a tree's leaves if unfamiliar with the tree. Although you "see" trees, you do so in a generic way and cannot easily distinguish one tree from another. Seeing is determined by familiarity as much as physiological processes. You can't assume something is seen just because it is there. Therefore,
If you want to be sure some object is noticed, surround it with movement, additional light, or bright colors. For example, if you want to take time out to read more books, place a bright light on a bookshelf beside the books.
Light is the source that defines shape,
Depth, and color, and highlighting important areas in a home is the simplest, most effective way to effect change. What we notice is where we'll go
By understanding the emotional context of colors we can manipulate the engage o experience of place to our benefit. Colors engage our eyes as well as our cultural interpretation of emotional experiences. Black, a color that absorbs
All others, experiences death in the West.
We believe that at the moment of death we are rewarded or penalized by the accumulation of our life's virtues or transgressions. On the other hand, the Chinese wear white to symbolize death, which summarizes their philosophy on physical extinction. While does not absorb Any color, it reflects all. In death, the Chinese believe, we are released from life's accumulated energies and begin the Process of growth and change for another lifetime.
By adding or reducing color, its intensity, or its purity, you can adjust a setting to complement its intent. For example, no one would decorate a hospital room all black in Western culture, nor would an all-white room Be appropriate for a young child. But reducing black to accent color and softening it to a gray could be appropriate In a healing setting, as would adding colored pigment to white, intensifying it into pale yellow, rose, or sky blue for a child's room.
This section will define the experience of color, the range of emotional extremes, and how to use color in a setting. Color can express personality and should be used in the same way you select your wardrobe.
I have a friend who likes the color orange!
Not the kind of orange you find on a popsicle; this wouldn't suit her, for she is complex and exotic. A muted darkened
Mango orange matches her personality.
When selecting a color, find the shade, tone, and temperament of a color that reflects you as well as the experience you intend for space. Remember also that colors can have both positive and negative meanings. While a single red rose on a dining room table symbolizes elegance and beauty, the notion of red-light district offensiveness.
Red, being the color of blood, represents a flow of life's forces. When we add this color to a setting, we are affirming life on a deep level. Red can be a springboard from which activity, responses, and focus Commence. it produces the longwave at the extreme end of the visible spectrum and a strong human reaction.
Red can register as overpowering. Our eyes are drawn to this color, and it is often the first one noted in a perceptible field. Moreover, it is associated with violence and can agitate as well as deplete a feeling of comfort. In all cases, pure red will elicit a powerful reaction, and an awareness of its potency is paramount to its effective use.
Of life. Of life
Use red to
Denote extremes, as in a red stop light
Distract, as in a toreador's cape in a bullfight
Warn, us in a lifeguard's red flag
Mark ceremonial activity, as in red ribbons at opening ceremonies
Agitate, as do carnivals' flashing red lights
Warm, as does sitting next to the glowing
Embers of a fire
Attract attention, as in a bull's eye in a target
Signal approaching an important area, as does a red carpet
Stay Away from pure red
In mental institution
In contemplative areas such as bedrooms or offices
In sports facilities lobbies
In crowded public facilities

Warm in the same way as a reflection from polished gold
Activate explorations, as did the yellow brick road in The Wizard of Oz
Stay away from pure yellow...
That reflects on faces
Inside cupboard or drawers
In a room for meditation
Sky and water cover the globe with the color blue. These unknown puzzles us and invite exploration. Blue is a color of isolation and adventure interestingly, it is also the most popular color choice of American males. Are they not taught to be independent and investigative?

Express unique, as does "once in a blue moon " cool as blue waters can on a hot day
Attend to the seriousness of purpose, as when I wore a navy blue to my college interviews
