Sure, most of us can agree when roses are red, or those violets are definitely blue. But have you ever wondered that perhaps each of us sees colors differently? From a Mr. Wizard point of view, color is technically a visual effect caused by the spectral composition of light emitted, transmitted and reflected by objects. Huh?
Essentially the colors we see are light being reflected off of objects, and then our brains interpret what colors we are seeing. This being true, don’t all of us perceive our world uniquely? Colors can make us feel happy, sad, nostalgic, passionate and even hungry! Different colors affect us in different ways, and quite often are linked side by side with our fondest memories. For instance, blue is meant to be calming whereas red is linked with love and passion making it the official color of Valentine’s Day. We surround and envelop ourselves with colors we enjoy, and tend to gravitate to the same special colors over and over.
So, what colors really float your boat? Are you bonkers for blue, or maybe tickled pink? With so many unique and vibrant ENO hammock colors to choose from, what does your hammock say about you?
