Perceiving Color Correctly is one of
important Interior Decorating Tools
Color exists because of light, an object and someone perceiving it.
Though we often think that pure white light is colorless it actually has all
the colors in our visual spectrum of sight. Our eye senses this spectrum
from the Cones and Rod cells in our retinas.. Rod cells pick up low-light
vision where cone cells discern color and acuity. We normally have three cone
cells in our eyes that can sense short, medium or long wavelength light.
This allows our eyes to see color. We tend to be more sensitive to yellow-
green areas of the color spectrum.
Another great one of Interior Decorating Tools is to know that Color has both
hue and saturation.
The hue of a color means that a particular wavelength of light is most
dominant for that color. Blue can have variations of wavelengths that
changes its appearance. A color’s saturation is a measure of its purity.
It can range from dark to light…pale ice blue to deep navy.
Color Blindness Affects Your Interior Decorating Tools ability to discern
different colors in your environment. This color blindness is due
to the problem with the color sensing cones that are found in the retina of
the back side of the eye mentioned before.. If one pigment is missing
of the three needed in the cone of your retina you have
trouble discerning the difference between red and green. If another
pigment is missing in your cone you may have trouble
distinguishing blue-yellow colors. Some persons suffer from
achromatopsia, total color blindness where you see only gray colors.
This is a rare condition but most color blindness exists because of
heredity factors. Men most often are color blind rather than women
as their X chromosome is affected by the lack of the proper pigments
in the cone. Men have only one X chromosome where women have
two. When choosing carpet sometimes a woman’s eye is evident in
her ability to use this important interior decorating tool.
