A little chat about colors

March 12th, 2010

The whole impression of colors that we have is based on given stimulation of red, blue and yellow and light in different amounts. Light reaches the eye directly and we percept it as white or transparent, while in case it is reflecting of different things, we have an impression of colors.

The color spectrum has:

Primary colors




Primary Colours

The basic colors do not resolve when refracted through a prism.

Secondary colors




Secondary Colours

The colors we percept are of psychological nature and thus have a subjective and objective value. The strongest effect when the color is perceived is its chromatic effect. The scientists determined that the color depends on its wavelength, the vibration of those waves stimulates the eye, this stimulation is transferred to the brain where the color is then perceived.
The color has its own lightness, spaciousness and volume. It also has the warmth and coldness and contains the rhythm and materiality of light-dark – the contrast. The colors have their own lightnesses individually and within the spectrum.
The term “spaciousness” is related to the way a color effects the surrounding and the term “volume” to the way it “occupies” the space into depth.

Warm tones



Yellow – crimson

Colder ones



Lighter tones


The colors influence emotions, the relationship between them can be harmonic and even similar to itself, calm, while contrast makes dynamics and movement. In case contrast and dynamics are combined, the greatest purity of colors is within the spectrum.
Based on that purity of the spectrum, the pigment – quality is also determined.

Coming up next:

Posts about each individual color, the meaning it has, the way it influences its surrounding, work atmosphere and everyday life. You will read about how to find the right colors, how to combine them, all the meanings that a color you like or wear carries with it and how to use colors to improve the quality of life.

Stay tuned!
