Colour Facts For October 2014

Colour Facts
  1. Ladies are known to fret over choosing that perfect shade of red for over hours and men can only fume over this habit of females. But research proves that it is not the lovely ladies who are to be blamed. According to researchers from Arizona State University, the “red seeing gene” is apparently present only in the X chromosome. Since, men have only one X chromosome, while females have two, it makes sense that women have a full understanding of the red spectrum. While the men only have half the ability to detect the red spectrum because of the way their basic DNA is configured.

  2. We are well aware of the disease of colour blindness but what many do not know is that almost 7-8% of human males are selectively or entirely colour blind. Colour blindness is not limited to humans and is also widely found in mammals like mice, rabbits, rats, cats, dogs, foxes, owls and many more. The similarity between the colour blinded humans and mammals with poor colour vision is that they are not capable of differentiating between reds and greens. They can only see the colours blue, yellow and green and their world is a blur of only these three colours.

  3. Blue as an eye colour is supposed to be one of the most beautiful eye colours. But a surprising fact about blue eyed people is that there are more babies with blue eyes than adults with blue eyes. The mystery seems to be about what happens to the eye colour of the child when it grows up, how does it change? Well, the answer is pretty simple, the melanin level present changes over time as humans grow and the colour of the eye also changes, along with the increasing level of melanin present in the human body.

Colour Quotes For October 2014

Colour Quotes
  • If you change the way you tell your own story, you can change the colour and create a life in technicolour.

    - Isabel Allende

  • You've always got to have the right blend of colour. You'd be silly to match a yellow t-shirt with a light green pair of trousers, you know? You can wear different colours at the same time, and as long as they blend with each other then it works. That's what I like.

    - Olly Murs

  • No things could seem further apart than the doubt of grey and the decision of scarlet. Yet grey and red can mingle, as they do in the morning clouds.

    - G.K. Chesterton

Colour Tips For October 2014

Colour Tips
  1. To add a dimension of large space for those who have a foyer or hall, paint it with a dark colour easing into lighter shades in the living room, which will make it feel more spacious by comparison and add a stylish contrast to the living area.

  2. For those who want to paint their houses themselves, but do not have the time or energy to do so at one go, can let a sigh of relief as we bring you a very handy tip! Avoid washing the paint brush or roller. Just wrap your painting brush or roller in an aluminium foil, put it in a plastic bag, tie it and place it in the freezer. Here, it can be stored for weeks or even months until the next time you will paint again.

  3. We know what a pain it can be to try to close paint cans when paint is stuck in the grooves of the rim of the can. However, a smart and simple way to get rid of this obstacle does exist! To remove paint from the grooves of the rim of a paint can, wipe the rim with a screwdriver wrapped in a rag which will wipe off all the excess paint allowing you to seal the can tightly.
