This colourful world we live in!
Regular visitors to the Ocean J store and website will know that colour plays a huge role in our life!
Gail shares some of her insights about colour and why they are so important to all of us. It may well be that you recognize yourself in the descriptors of these shades!
Gail says: “I’ve always been inspired by colour, it makes the world a beautiful place and plays a major part in the decisions I make about what to stock in Ocean J.
‘When you look deeper into the world of colour it’s surprising the subliminal messages they give. For example did you know that Green is the colour of achievers, people who enjoy the good things in life and who like their creature comforts, whereas Blue suggest contentment but a lack of compromise in your lifestyle choices.
‘Purple, this colour is indicative of impulsiveness and dominance. People who like the dark and rich hue of this shade lean toward mystical and magical moments in their lives.
‘Grey, we see this colour everywhere and its popularity stems from the fact that it covers the ‘middle ground’… it’s non threatening and subtle. Grey offers acceptance to people who want to be part of something suitable for all.
‘Yellow is the colour of positivity, and people who choose to wear it are generally happy, optimistic and hard working! It shows a level of confidence in oneself when chosen as clothing or jewellery.
‘Everyone recognizes Red as the colour of passion and energy; it also represents ambition and drive. Anyone who dares to wear this colour tends to live life to the full!
‘Brown, similar in many ways to Grey suggests a need to be part of the ‘norm’… there is no sense of dominance or submission in this colour, it offers safety and a subdued sense of being accepted.
‘And of course there is the ubiquitous Black, the colour that suggests self-confidence but is actually used to hide behind more than any other colour. Black isn’t really a true colour, it’s the absorption of all colours from the spectrum we see all around us.
I hope you are all watching the fascinating programme on BBC 4, Colour, the spectrum of science. It really is incredible and explains so much about this wonderful colourful world we live in”.
