I’ve been sharing a lot about the effect of various colours on both ourselves and those around us and thanks to Donna McCord (a woman in a man’s world) asking me about green on Twitter, I was prompted to publish this photo. It recently occurred to me that there was a fabulous example of this staring me in the face.
There is a large building site directly across the road from us. A 3-storey building is being erected and it looks like it is going to take quite a while to complete. Since this photo was taken, another storey and the wooden structure for the roof have been added, completely obscuring the horizon and our amazing sunsets.
However, the relevant point that I wanted to share with you is that this is a purpose-built retirement home. A place which will provide shelter and security for elderly couples. And guess which colour has been chosen for the ads?
Green of course. Here’s a photo of the building with the accompanying billboard.
* For those of you who are interested, here are the two post I made on the colour green –
I’d love to hear if you’ve come across any similar examples of green being used in this way.
