Colours in Hospital Design - Special feature on Hospital Interior & Design, April 2012

“The effect of beautiful objects, of variety of objects and especially of brilliance of colour is hardly at all appreciated. Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form, by colour, and light, we do know this, that they have an actual physical effect.Variety of form and brilliancy of colour in the objects presented to patients are actual means of recovery.”
