Can you imagine what your world would be like if you couldn't see color? Your entire world would be in gray-scale. Try putting together a wardrobe of decorating your home not knowing how it really looked!
I recently watched a TED talk by a man that had a condition where he could not see color. Listening to him I realized how fortunate I am that my world is colorized and that most people see the world as I do.
I have written in the past about how colors vibrate, each on their own wave length. Through technology, the gentleman from the TED talk, Neil Harbisson, wears a special device that sees colors through their vibrations and converts to a tone that can be heard. Neil now recognizes colors by their tone or vibration, but he still can't see colors to know what they really look like.
While I am immensely grateful for being able to see the world in color, I am intrigued by the idea of hearing colors. I wonder if what I am wearing today vibrates harmoniously. What about my home? The colors I have are pleasing, they accent and complement each other, but would they be heard as a pleasant tune? Can you imagine hearing what your rooms might sound like? It is an interesting thought isn't it decorating by sound.
If you would like to listen to the TED talk you can do so here.
Today I offer you the same photograph in color and also black and white. Each offers it's own appeal. Which would you choose for your home? Both are available for purchase by clicking on the image.
