Colour me happy, part II

This week at Millbrook Beds we’ve been giving some thought to whether colour can really make us happy, or sad for that matter. Thinking about colour psychology (see part I) we’ve been reminding ourselves of the mysteriously powerful impact colour has on our mood and behaviour and how this is often leveraged by retailers and...

Colour me happy, part I

“Colour! What a deep and mysterious language, the language of dreams.” Paul Gauguin 1848 - 1903 Colour is a mysterious thing and, as the influential French artist Gauguin once famously pointed out, colour has such power and influence on us it almost communicates in its own language. Yet, in spite of this significance, we can...

Wake up call

Every now and again we get a wake up call in areas of our lives that matter. Often representing a watershed moment, a wake up call is often when we realise - perhaps for the first time - the true value of something. Last week the BBC reported government ministers are preparing to issue guidance...

Enhancement

These days things don’t always need to be broken to get a little ‘fix’ here and there. We routinely give little fixes here and there to enhance our homes, our lifestyles and an increasing number of people like a little cosmetic enhancement here and there for their faces and bodies too. But when it comes...

Is it ok?

Every now and again, we just need a sense check about certain things, to know if what we’re doing or what we’re experiencing is within the bounds of ‘normality’. To do this we’ll generally ask friends, family, perhaps our GP and most likely Google an “is it ok?” question relating to our worry. And it’s...

Game plan

Are you someone who likes to have things all mapped out for you? Not surprisingly with the busy lives we lead, sometimes we don’t have time to research everything or work out the reasons behind every glitch in our lives; sometimes we need someone else just to give us the answers. If this is you,...
