Back to my weekly (
2 weeks late) series about decorating with color. You might be interested in my previous posts, Decorating with Black, Decorating with Green, and Decorating with Violet. Today I will be chatting about decorating with blue.
Blue is a primary color that is described as a cool color due to its calming effect on us.
Color psychology of Blue:
- Slows metabolism, lowers blood pressure and body temperature. Therefore, it is described as tranquil, relaxing, and restful.
- Known as the color of the intellect because it helps in concentration and communication.
- Suppresses the appetite.
- Evokes feelings of safety, authority, and trust.
- Too much blue can be depressing. Hence the term: feeling “blue”
