Blue is said to bring down blood pressure and slow respiration and heart rate. That is why it is considered calming, relaxing and serene, and it is often recommended for bedrooms and bathrooms.
A pastel blue that looks pretty on the paint chip can come across as unpleasantly chilly on the walls and furnishings especially in a room that receives little natural light. If you opt for a light blue as the primary colour in a room, balance it with warm hues for the furnishings and fabrics.
To encourage relaxation in social areas such as family rooms, living rooms or large kitchens, consider warmer blues, such as periwinkle, or bright blues, such as cerulean or turquoise.
Blue is known to have a calming effect when used as the main colour of a room — but go for softer shades. Dark blue has the opposite effect, evoking feelings of sadness. Refrain from using darker blues in your main colour scheme.
We recommend Dekade Bluebud (8522-4), Patina Tint (8543-4), Island Palm (8693-5) and Mellow Yellow (8122-1) to achieve this inspired look in your space.
