Along with Rose Quartz, Pantone has named Serenity, a watery gray blue, one of the Colors of 2016. You’ll see various shades of blue in bedrooms featured in home magazines, in spa-like bathrooms on TV decorating shows, and in kitchen design ideas online. It’s true — the color blue is having a moment. But don’t let its trendy status worry you. Blue is one of those timeless hues that never goes out of style. From pale shades of aqua to deep, rich navy, the possibilities on the blue color palette are virtually endless. In fact, blue is found in traditional homes, contemporary abodes, and every style of décor in between.
Why is blue so appealing?
We believe it’s time to finally rethink the meaning of a Blue Mood. Blue can be cool or warm depending on the tone, but almost always has a peaceful, calming effect when used in the home. Indeed, it’s anything but sad. Blue is said to bring down blood pressure and slow respiration and heart rate. That is why it is considered so soothing and serene. And like the sea and the sky, blue can bring a touch of nature indoors, in unexpected and ultimately cheerful ways. Except for neutral tones, blue is one of the easiest and most versatile hues to work with.
How do I Incorporate blue into my home?
Cool blues are the perfect choice for bedrooms or bathrooms, while warm blues work well in living rooms and dining rooms. Pair blue walls with crisp white trim for the most visual impact. In the kitchen, opt for blue canisters, dinnerware, linens, or small appliances, such as stand mixers and pop-up toasters. Or make a beautiful statement with blue kitchen cabinets!
