Color effects

Colors are rarely seen alone and can appear to change as they are viewed in combination. Surface textures also can alter the appearance of a color, because textures absorb or reflect light differently. For instance, a red rose will look brighter and richer compared to a red balloon. Using different lighting or slightly changing the scale or proportion of a color produces entirely different effects.

When creating a harmonious and unique spa atmosphere, consider what meaning and message you want to convey and how they will interact with the brand image you already have established.
