As a teacher, she is one of the best. I have known Gloria for over 10 years, beginning when she joined our faculty in 2008 at the Boston Architectural College. Her student reviews were consistently excellent. Her teaching methods are thoughtful; combining lecture with hands on work, on-site critiques…and she makes it fun! In short, you will remember what you have been taught.
Gloria’s new focus on educating and advising those engaged in improving senior living environments through color will be a win-win for both her clients and their beneficiaries.
Whether you participate in one of her Seminars, Training Classes, or Small Group Panel Discussions, you will be challenged to think, and will be equipped with the tools to accomplish your design goals.
Although she is a respected and passionate expert in her field, she never stops seeking out the most current, up to date research as it relates to color as a key element for the well being and safety of seniors. You will not be disappointed when you work with Gloria!

We have always known that interior design, if thoughtfully done, can evoke emotion. Spaces can be made bright and happy or, a peaceful, contemplative space in the hands of a skilled designer. As more is learned about the changes that come about with aging, for example, how our sensory and mobility capacities change, how our cognitive losses impact our ability to understand and use our environment successfully, a skilled designer can more thoughtfully design environments that help the older person compensate for most age-related losses. This is called “Prosthetic Design”.
Gloria Robertson has been at the forefront of this type of design, working with neuroscientists and interior designers to merge these fields in order create interiors to help elders compensate for age-related losses and, most importantly, remain more engaged in their world.
In mentoring Gloria Robertson over the past four years she has shown me, in every way, her meticulous attention to detail and her understanding of her clients’ needs. Her design sense, goes far beyond what is trendy, hers’ is an informed sense of design that creates independence and self-worth for those who live in it, while also being intrinsically beautiful.

Gloria Robertson is well respected as a leading expert in color science for the health and wellness industry. Her commitment to the study and creation of environments that support patients and seniors is unsurpassed, as is her innovative insight into the use of color and light as a tool to improve the lives of the senior demographic. I have had the honor of working with Gloria for over 15 years, watching her thrive as a popular instructor and mentor in the use of color and light, and I am excited to see her Colors For Health vision grow.
