Open Access Honors Program Thesis
The purpose of this study is to provide evidence that color, as an environmental factor, reaches far beyond mere aesthetics, and has very real effects on human beings. Furthermore, based upon a literature review, I will provide a framework for healthcare designers to aid in their color and finish selection in order to be the most beneficial to the captive and non-ambulatory populations in healthcare settings.
