Blue inspiration - teal, navy, petrol, cobalt, azure
Blue is calming, reassuring and is becoming increasingly popular within modern interiors. Often associated with air and water it can create a soothing and relaxing space.
When we think of colours associated with wealth, we generally think of Gold, purple or red rather than blue. However, in the Middle Ages, the Lapis lazuli blue pigment had a higher value than gold.
Contemporary Blues have an aquatic quality inspired by deep oceans, shimmering streams and sparkling minerals. A calming colour that has ethereal qualities. The mood it creates makes it perfect for more personal spaces where tranquillity is desired, allowing clarity of thought and relaxation.
In the home, blue can create serene and tranquil areas by using softer shades. Brighter ultramarines can revitalise and refresh a room by providing energy without overpowering the space.
