A world without color would be very dull. Can you imagine viewing a beautifully colorful floral arrangement in black and white? Or a Vincent Van Gogh painting without color?
If we have the ability to perceive color in our lives we tend to take it for granted. Look out your window. The world we live in is very colorful. In the Midwest we have four seasons. Spring brings fresh color with new flowers popping up every day. Summer brings us green grass, colorful gardens, and shady trees. Fall changes our outdoor palette when leaves on trees change from green to beautiful hues of yellow, orange and browns. Winter repaints the scenery with blankets of glistening frost, ice and snow against a backdrop of buildings, streets and streetlights. Color is with us every second of every day.
So why should we limit our lighting to black and white, off and on, when we have the ability to enjoy lush colors and hues? There are a number of technologies available that can color our world! Imagine lighting a room with soothing hues to calm a busy day. Or hues that energize. Imagine lighting that enhances special days with color; reds and greens for Winter Holiday season, gold, purple and green for Mardi Gras, pastels for the Spring Holiday season. All at the touch of a button.
Here are a few of the technologies we employ to color our world.
