Colours & Emotion For August 2017

Colours & Emotion
  1. Bright and strong colours such as primary red, orange and yellow have a powerful effect on a baby's subtle inner vibrations, causing restlessness and making the baby cry. Bold patterns and strong contrasting colours are also likely to be disturbing and overwhelming for the baby. Make use of soft tones of creams, yellows, pinks, peaches and baby blues that radiate warmth and peace. This will be emotionally soothing and comforting for the little one. You can also try soft pastels, peachy apricots and minty greens for a shade that's more gender-neutral. If you're planning your baby's room, take a few minutes and do a little bit of research. After all, your baby will be in this room for a while before you decide to repaint.

  2. If your child refuses to eat what's on their plate, don't worry – help is at hand. Studies recently conducted showed that presenting meals in six different colours can boost a young person's appetite. Scientists found that youngsters were much more likely to finish their meal when there was more colour and choice on their plates. Children prefer up to six colours, while adults tend to prefer just three. It was revealed that children not only opt for plates that have more colours and elements but also prefer main items placed in front of the plate in figurative designs.

Colours & Gems For August 2017

Colours & Gems
  1. Amber is considered a gemstone despite being a fossilized tree resin and not a stone, and it has many interesting legends behind it. According to Norse mythology, the goddess Freyja cried tears that turned into gold and amber when her husband was away. Amber is associated with light and electricity. We derive the word electricity from the Greek name for amber, 'electron.' This stone was once believed to be made of congealed sunlight, which was sacred to the Greek god Apollo. The Chinese believed that amber was the soul of the tiger transformed after death. The most popular amber stones are found in warm colours - a variety of orange, yellow and sunny brown tones, which is why amber is considered to be the stone of the sun.

  2. Tourmaline and its symbolic properties differ from region to region. It is known to be found in various colours, namely blue, pink, yellow, green and red. According to Egyptian legend, the stone found its array of colours when it left the earth's centre and passed through a rainbow. Some African and Australian shamans believe that they are teller stones that can locate sources of trouble, offer insight, and suggest the route towards goodness. In numerous cultures, black tourmaline is believed to protect against dark magic. Native Americans gave certain shades of this intriguing stone as funeral gifts.

  1. The Painted Bunting breeds in shrubby thickets in trees above 30 feet and along the edges of the forest. It is found in South-eastern United States and in North-eastern Mexico, and during the winters in Florida, the Bahamas, Cuba and Mexico, south to Costa Rica and Western Panama. With its vibrant fusion of green, blue, red and yellow, the male Painted Bunting looks straight out of a colouring book! In Mexico, the Painted Bunting is commonly called 'siete colores', or 'seven colours.' Despite wearing almost all the colours of the rainbow, the Painted Bunting is not always easy to spot as it is sparrow-sized, and spends a lot of its time concealed by vegetation.

  2. The word killifish is of uncertain origin, but is most likely to have come from the Dutch word 'kil' or 'kille' which means a body of water. Killifish are found throughout Asia, South and North America, Africa and in some parts of Europe. They are lavishly coloured in red, blue, orange and popular amongst hobbyists as they can be easily kept in freshwater aquariums. The female Killifish are less vibrantly coloured than the males, who have blue and yellow colouration with orange spots and stripes from the body till the tip of their fins.
