"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." -Pedro Calderon de la Barca
Hello! Is it possible for me to have a Friday Favorites blog post without any green items in it? ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! I just cannot help myself, I gravitate towards green without even thinking about it. Here are some interesting facts about the color green which help explain why. Enjoy!
Green occupies more space, in the spectrum visible to the human eye, than any other color, and is second only to blue as a favorite. Green is the most common color in the natural world, making it an ideal backdrop in design because we are so used to seeing it everywhere.
Natural greens, from forest to lime, are seen as tranquil and refreshing. Green is considered the color of peace and ecology.
There is also another side to green, one associated with illness and government-issued green cards, that conjures up negative emotions, as do the "slimy" or "bilious" greens.
