А. Color : atmosphere and emotion creator

Throughout the world, colors are at the heart of culture symbolism.
The importance given by mankind to color is said to date back to prehistory, even though man’s behavior was governed by daylight.

Therefore, the colors of the sun (yellow) and the night (dark-blue) were major points of references.

Most living beings, somehow, seem to be stimulated by red and orange and yellow tints of daytime and calmed by blue and indigo and purple tints of nighttime.

For all time, medicine admitted physiological and psychological effects of colors.

Recent disciplines are devoted to study color effects on our moods : chromo therapy focuses on the energy released by color wavelength; and chromatherapy is based on Chinese medicine principles.
