Lighting and Mood

Did you know that lighting can affect our behavior and mood? Lighting should be designed to accommodate various ambiances, especially in spaces where we spend a lot of time and have different activities.

High levels of light give us energy. Low levels can be soothing and relaxing. Colored light can evoke various feelings based on that person’s experience with light and color (We all have memories of colored light. Think of all that we are exposed to.) We can also associate light with the colors of our chakras and with chromatherapy treatments.
