Long gone are the days when homes were dominated by a singular white palette, with beige, magnolia and greys usually chosen to create a neutral, minimalist design scheme. Homeowners are becoming bolder and braver and, with colour psychology becoming increasingly popular, bright colour pops are being used within the home in a variety of ways. In particular, blue has proven itself to be a firm favourite to create a clean, calm and classic ambience in the home.
A universally favoured colour, blue is versatile and has a multitude of shades, tones and hues. Perhaps because it’s the colour of both the sky and the sea, blue is said to induce clarity and increased intuition. The colour is also linked to creativity, serenity and productivity – some great moods to evoke within your home!
Used within interior design, the shade is immediately calming and welcoming, whether used in deep navy for a touch of drama, or a paler tone for a more subtle space. From nautical to regal, and from exciting injections of accent colour to eye-catching patterns, there are many ways to bring blue into your next home interior project.
We hope our blog post has inspired you to consider ways to bring beautiful blue tones into your home!
