Whoever designed this place had a nauseating sense of colour. One can only endure so much pastel.
Actually, these are not pastel colours,compared with what one sees in hospitals these days, and in this photo they seem quite cheery. When my grandmother, who died twelve years ago, knit her distinctive two tone mitts for us, they were often very bright (not neon) cheery colours. In her last years she tended to wear bright colours that usually seem to be the province of much younger people and which I think she had previously been discouraged from wearing by her dour Depression-era family and rather conservative husband. When our generation, who have not been so colour deprived, gets to these sorts of places, it will be interesting to see what we choose to surround ourselves with (or what our children choose for us).
Great shot! I love the overlay of the window security screen.
What fantastic colours! Reminds me of neapolitan ice cream :)
These colors had a effect on the brian also. Alot of hopitals and prisons where painted this way. The colors are suppose sooth and relax people in a sub-hypnotic kind of way.
