Architectural color is closely related to psychological stress
Core tip: When the Friere Bridge in London was black, people often jumped into the water to commit suicide.
Later, the City of London tried to listen to the “bizarre” suggestion of Dr. Pricen, a medical expert, to paint the bridge from black to blue. The number of people who committed suicide by jumping off the bridge fell by 56 that year.
As a result, more and more people are paying attention to the connection between architectural color and psychological pressure.
Colors are visually harmonized, and the most relaxed architectural color of “neutral gray” people is a public color, which does not belong to one person.
However, if anyone opposes the color that they don’t like all day and night, it will definitely cause emotional depression and potential psychological stress.
Experts say that when the various colors in the building and its surrounding environment are reconciled into “neutral gray” in human eyes, the human eye is in a satisfied and balanced state, and talents will be the most relaxed and natural.
If people endure looking at a red square and then looking at the white wall, a green square appears as a visual afterimage.
And red and green are a pair of complementary colors that can be blended into neutral gray.
This is because the human eye is satisfied only when a complementary relationship is established.
Experts suggest that, as a buyer, please relocate to the existing living environment and find or create some complementary color elements that can be reconciled into “neutral gray”, which will effectively overcome the stress caused by unsatisfactory colors.
Learn to choose colors first, otherwise depression may be triggered.
Experts say that buildings that only consider their own creative design are also doomed to fail.
A developer in Beijing plans to develop a high-rise office building in a busy corner of the crossroads, but there are three residential buildings to the west of the building.
In order to highlight the landmark building and pursue fashion, the original architectural colors are planned to use black stone and blue glass curtain wall as exterior decoration.
Because the distance between the office building and the residential building is very close, many residents protest this visual effect, thinking that if you open the window all day, you will not see a blue sky and white clouds, but a large depression, and you will feel very pessimistic and depressed.The developer must change the original design.
Therefore, when choosing donations, consumers should not only look at individual buildings, but only consider the pursuit of color for a while. Instead, they should look at the entire benefit from a natural and human environment perspective.
Experts choose three elements of color selection. When choosing a living environment and home decoration, people appropriately formulate an appropriate color scheme according to different personal circumstances.
Make the most of red.
Red is the traditional color of China, and it is easy to be accepted by the public as an architectural color.
However, people with a high chroma red environment have elevated blood pressure and a rapid heartbeat.
Therefore, the red color of the old building renovation should be appropriate, and the large area of the indoor use of red should also be appropriate, otherwise it will make people worry.
Don’t just blindly believe in blue and green.
Many urban people choose to brush the wall flour into soft blue or green when decorating their houses, thinking that in such an environment, they can relax and improve the quality of sleep.
However, such cool colors are not suitable for the elderly who live alone for a long time, and will increase their loneliness. Therefore, it is recommended to use bright and warm colors such as yellow.
Use pink with caution.
Pink has always been a relatively controversial color in the construction industry. Some people think that pink may also cause psychological uneasiness, but there are also scientific experiments that show that pink stimulates the optic nerve to reduce adrenaline secretion, slows heart contraction, and muscleRelax.
For the improvement of emotional anxiety, tension has a good therapeutic effect.
So if you don’t discriminate against this color, it doesn’t prevent you from trying carefully.
