BBC World Service - The Why Factor, Blue | Color For Your Home | Scoop.it

In the physical, material sense, it's quite rare in nature... But, at the same time, it surrounds us. Babies can't detect it. The Himba tribe of Namibia can't describe it. Pablo Picasso turned to it after a friend committed suicide and in the West it's creative and reliable in the East it's cold and deathly. This week on the Why Factor, we're talking about something different - the colour blue.

Kate Smith's insight:

Hermès really makes the point about orange much better than I can: When used appropriately, it's sportif, whimsical, dangerous and a little bit indulgent. Perhaps that's why there's so much of it around this autumn—and why there will be even more in the spring.
