Soothing Nature Colors: Part 3

Colors in nature have the ability to relax our minds and bodies, rejuvenate our spirits, and make us feel fresh and alive. In Part 2, we talked about cream, gray and chartreuse. Here are three more colors in nature and how they affect us.

EGGPLANT

Eggplant or pale lavender colors are simultaneously cool and warm. Dark violet is very similar to black and makes a person think on a higher level. Paler tones can put us in a happy mood.

RED

Red is bold and beautiful. It gives us fiery energy, makes us more alert, adds drama and eye-catching appeal.

BROWN

Brown earth tones give us stability, dependability and a sense of unity with the earth.

Do you like the color purple? I find that many people have strong reactions to it. Pale lavender in a baby’s room can be very beautiful.

Read Part 4 (coming soon) in the Soothing Nature Colors series, or see more of our photos containing purple, red or brown earth tones.
