Energy

Joy is high-energy happiness, and the energy aesthetic is the visual manifestation of this energy in our lives: bright color and warm, sunny light. As the German painter Johannes Itten once said, “Color is life; for a world without colors appears to us as dead.” Pops of color and light can be like caffeine for the eyes. Turn to this aesthetic when you want to revitalize dull spaces and energize the people in them.
