Mood Curtains/Mood Shades
Multi-layered window decoration

by Marianne ANGERSBACH

A Mood Curtain is part art object, part decoration and part therapeutic tool.





The curtain is made from several translucent sheets of colored fabric.  These sheets are hung in front of windows to affect the color of the light that falls into a room.  A special construction allows the user to change the color of the curtain and therefore the mood in the room.

A Mood Curtain can be used either to intensify or change your mood.

If you feel listless or lack of energy you would choose one color; if you would like to cool your temper, another.  In an office or meeting hall, you might be able to increase productivity or influence the outcome of a conference by choosing the appropriate color.

 A Mood Curtain can also be a creative plaything.  Because the sheets are layered in front of your window, you can experiment with various combinations.  For example, red and blue layered on top of each other would make violet; an orange (red and yellow) sheet with a violet one pulled halfway down over it would create bands of color in a room. Each color and each combination makes a different impression.



Mood Curtains will enhance your sensitivity for colors and lead you to choose color more consciously than ever.  You will not only use color to affect your surroundings but to achieve your personal goals.

How do colors influence moods?

Color has played a vital role in many different cultures.  It has been used to express feelings, define status, and promote well-being.  The meaning of different colors varies according to environment and cultural context.  Color also depends on individual perception, because the way you react to one color or another depends on your individual personality.  Nonetheless it is possible to define certain universal aspects of different colors.

These are observations that artists, shamans, psychologists and theorists have made over centuries about the associations of individual colors:

Red is associated with power, warmth, vitality and love.   It can energize and, some experiments suggest, stimulate blood circulation.

Orange is associated with wisdom.  It represents an outgoing, uplifting force.  Some people have found that orange helps lift depressed spirits and low self-esteem.  It also encourages cooperation and group work.

Yellow sharpens mental concentration and stimulates the nervous system.  It can enhance the ability to study, analyze and think.

Green is the color of rest, tranquility and peace.  It restores tired nerves and is the color of growth and renewal.  Green is the essential color of nature.  It helps ease tension and reduce irritability.

Blue is associated with truth, devotion and dedication.  It cools you down and makes you feel at ease.  Some studies suggest that it slows the heartbeat and contributes to relaxation.

Violet is the color of inspiration and creativity.  Leonardo da Vinci is said to have meditated under light falling through violet-colored stained glass windows.
