Have you ever looked up at a cloudless, brilliantly blue sky and felt instantly relaxed and revitalised? That’s because blue is a colour that evokes peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation.

Studies have shown that surrounding yourself with blue reduces stress, and the paler the blue, the more relaxed you’ll feel. If your household needs some harmonious tranquillity, why not try a soft blue in the areas where tempers fray, like in your child’s bedroom, or in rooms where you want to promote relaxation, like in the bathroom? You could even paint your ceilings blue to recreate that beautiful blue sky.
