Azure, Cobalt, Indigo, Navy, Royal, Sapphire, Slate – Blue is truly a versatile color.
Of course the list of Blues goes on, as it not only comes in many shades, but has stood the test of time, having been used for centuries. Blue is perceived as calming and signifies confidence, trust, sensitivity and responsibility. Not to mention it’s associated with open skies and expansive spaces.
Blue can be used in so many ways and places.
From painting all the walls a deep Blue, adding it in the form of an area rug and window treatments or injecting a splash of color through art.
Blue in area rugs not only hide stains, it provides a great backdrop for a room. Sometimes we even start with the rug, then add a touch of Blue on the window treatments. Just a trim with Blue adds some excitement.
The furniture can be all Blue or just have a hint of this color. Add another color – a bit of green, hint of red or a touch of yellow. Blue plays well with many colors, so don’t be afraid to experiment.
We have used Blue over the years with many colors on the walls.
Gray walls make a great backdrop for Blue, whereas beige walls compliment it too. And we are not the only ones singing the praise of the color Blue.
Behr® just announced their color of the year 2019 – Blue, well Blueprint to be exact.
