What do you think it feels like to live in a world where everything you see is black and white? From the leaves and flowers of your plants in the garden and the trees in your backyard; to the clothes you wear and the movies you watch, the house you live in, and even your meals – all of these in monochrome.
DULL: The most exact qualifier that should be used in simply thinking about this.
You cannot even begin to imagine how bland it will be like. I bet all you can think of right away are the mainstream movies filmed in black-and-white during the 60s. It will be a lifeless and stale feeling whenever you turn your head around to look at things.
What, then, if everything is red? Or blue? Or Yellow?
Will it be as monotonous as when it is in monochrome?
Color Influence in Architectural Design
Color influences us more than we can realize. It is often interlinked with our emotions. As the renowned Pablo Picasso once remarked, “Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” It can affect our tempers, feelings, and behaviors. Although perceived as somewhat subjective, there are some effects of colors with meanings that are universally accepted. Colors like red, orange, and yellow, for example, are known as warm colors in the color spectrum, which induce a wide range of feelings such as warmth, passion, comfort feelings of anger, and hate.
On the other hand, colors like blue, green, and purple are known as cool colors, which call to mind feelings of coolness, calmness, solitude, and sometimes sadness and indifference. The concept of color psychology has just begun to emerge, and while there is still a lack of sufficient research on this area, this has, however, already become a controversial subject in the fields of marketing, art, design, and other related expertise. Even psychological experts have started experimenting with the soothing effect of colors on depression and the like.
The psychology of colors has also begun to be applied in building designs and architectures and is becoming more and more prevalent in its application to spaces. Many painters and interior designers have since believed that colors can drastically affect moods, feelings, and other physiological reactions. Hence, other than showcasing specific constructive detail or creating mimic images of certain features of space, artists and designers often use a variety of chromatic colors to produce the specific sets of emotion or visual effects they want to get from their audiences. It can also make the environment look spacious or cramped, which may, in turn, induce either feeling of irritation or comfort and the like. For architecture in general, from interior decoration down to landscaping, colors are vitally important.
Crosswinds: A Blend of Color Influence
One of the many considerations of Brittany in the overall design of its real estate land developments is the blend of colors in the interiors and exteriors of its top-notch luxury residences.

It features the combination of over 35 000 lush greenery of well-maintained pine trees, which contours parks, walking trails, and jogging paths, and the earthy feel of high gable roofs in every crosswind condominium Alpine Villas to enhance the somewhat rustic vibe and aesthetic feel of the mountainside. The wooden interior designs of this swiss-themed community are also painted with the traditional wall color choice of white to visually break up the copious wooden elements and increase the refraction of light inside the unit, while some others also add a splash of light-blue color to bring in the clear sky experience in the Swiss Alps.
