Coloured globes are generally used as a feature for a special event or evening, as the colour will fade to a clear colour.

“Red and its derivatives relate to the physical; it is often said that … surrounding people with red will raise their blood pressure, but there is little academic record of any experiments confirming this ….red certainly seems to be physically stimulating.
