Color speaks to us on a deep level, opening doorways to the mind and soul. Our mood and sense of wellbeing can be powerfully boosted or depressed by the colors of the walls, furnishings, and other objects in our homes, of the clothes we wear, of the plants and flowers in our gardens, of the light in our living spaces - even by the color of the food on our plates. Color treatments can be used to safeguard and improve health: the therapeutic use of colored gems, color-vitalized drinks, and colored light derives from ancient wisdom that can be traced back at least as far as ancient Egypt, and also finds expression in Indian Ayurvedic medicine. Gathering together and illuminating all these different aspects, "Color for Life" is a lavishly illustrated celebration of the world of color. An introductory section describes how we perceive color and how it affects us. Chapters of Color and Clothes, Color in Your Home, Color in Your Garden, Color and Nutrition, and Color, Health, and Wellbeing investigate in depth the effects of light and color, and will empower you to revitalize your home and increase you sense of physical and spiritual wellbeing through the inspired use of color.
