  • Have you ever considered choosing a particular color for

    wellness? Imagine youre attending an appointment in a hospital or

    clinic, for example a chemotherapy suite.

    Youre feeling unwell and you know that as your treatment proceeds, you will likely feel worse before you feel

    any better.

  • Now imagine the walls of the chemotherapy suite are painted a vibrant

    shade of pink. How do you think this will impact on how you feel?

    Will it have a calming, fresh, anti-nausea effect? Or will it potentially make you

    feel sicker?

  • Now think back to how you remember hospitals and doctors offices from

    your childhood. You will likely remember most clearly not just the uncomfortable, ugly space, and perhaps that universal hospital disinfectant smell that you

    never forget, but I suspect you also have an image of walls painted hospital

    green. How does remembering this color shade make you feel? Anxious?

    Nervous? Panicky? Unwell?

    Color has an enormous impact on how we feel, our moods and also our physical response to a space. For this reason, when we consider medical

    interior design, we need to truly consider the psychology involved behind colors.

    Color is a powerful force in our lives. It can change emotions, moods, and cause physiological and

    psychological reactions. Certain colors have been proven to increase metabolism, blood pressure,

    and cause eyestrain. Other colors stimulate appetite; some can depress the nervous system; others can create a sense of calm and wellbeing.

    The individual experience of color is very subjective, and while one person may love a color, another may not respond so well to it. Personal experiences of

    color have an enormous impact. There are, however, some generalizations that stand:

    Red, orange, yellow, reddish-purple, and cream are warm colors these stimulate and evoke feelings ranging from comfort and warmth to passion and anger.

    Blue, green, indigo, violet and stark white are cool colors they evoke feelings ranging from balance and calmness to indifference and even sadness.

    Red was used to increase circulation and to stimulate the mind and body. It is today seen by some as a powerful agent for healing blood and circulation issues and even conquering cancer.

    Yellow was traditionally used for purification and to stimulate the nerves.

    Orange was valued as a lung healer and energy promoter, with a warm yet gentle effect.

    Blue is perceived as soothing and calming.

    Green is believed to be a very effective healer, balancing emotions its all about choosing the right shade.

    White is clean, fresh, wholesome, and bright.

    The use of color in medical interior design should aim to curb stress, strengthen feelings of calm and wellbeing, and encourage relaxation. Natural light is an important part of this; however, there are some paint and dcor hues that can help achieve these

    aims. The right color palette can transform a healthcare facility and the experience of those who

    use it.

    Choose balance between harmoniously chosen colors, natural light, and controlled lighting.

    Avoid bright and vibrant color in patient rooms instead choose muted cool tones.

    Neutral tones can be very tranquil.

    Highly saturated reds and yellows can evoke anxiety.

    Medical interiors like doctors offices and clinics benefit greatly from using tones from nature.
