Color Inspiration: Light Blue
Light blues feel so cool and refreshing right now. And that’s no surprise as we head into the start of summer. A natural color, from the blue of the sky to the colors of the ocean, blue is a universal color. Did you know that the cool, calming effect of blue makes time pass more quickly and it can help you sleep? Perhaps that’s why this color is so popular for bedrooms.
In many diverse cultures blue is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.
Mix the color of blue with green for a natural, watery palette. Or add gray for understated elegance. Sky blue and robin’s egg blue, especially when combined with a neutral light brown, tan, or beige are environmentally friendly color combinations.
