GREEN ROOM THAT'S BLUE
I recent visitor to our premises asked why the ‘Green Room’ was so called when it was actually a blue room? And it’s a good question; original, the Green Room came from the theatrical world where artistes would rest and relax before performing in a room that was painted green. Green was used because it was considered a restful and relaxing colour. When film and television came along, we took the terminology, as with many other industry terms, but changed the colour. It seems means a room where artistes are relax and prepare and is still meant to be a calming yet creative space, but more often than not the green has been replaced by blue or some other soft hue to create a good ambiance.
