Wednesday Whim - A Brighter Place

The idea of being in a hospital isn't associated with any sort of whimsical environment. But, the London Children's Hospital has been transformed to change that notion. A British art organization called Vital Arts has worked with various artists and designers to create a new environment for patients to be in. Bold designs and colors are used to invoke a place a child would want to be in. The kid-friendly spaces invoke a cheerful and upbeat vibe, which definitely helps create a positive and happy experience. And when you're a child who is feeling ill that's a game changer.
