Eyes tire if they have to linger too long on a completely white background. Eyes are over-stimulated by too much light and minds are bored by a lack of variation. Environments with alternating light and dark spaces improve the inhabitants’ sense of wellbeing. Eyes can shift to darker surfaces to seek rest, and the mind maintains a relaxed state of awareness. Gentle grays such as this one create spaces that should not be too brightly illuminated to be both elegant and restful.

"Their colors are just unbelievably beautiful, whether the sun is shining, or it's rainy weather, or night, with every play of light they look different again. Incredible."
