Color Your Life: Blue
From Aqua to Navy Blue and all the way back to Cerulean, blue is the color that we reach to time and time again for both design inspiration and spiritual and emotional healing. It’s the color of the ocean and the sky, making it a constant in our lives. It’s the color of peace and calm, and of royal authority. Egyptians used lapis lazuli to represent heaven. Artists often use blue in paintings to help illustrate perceptive, as blue can give a feeling of depth and distance. Turquoise represents youth and strength. While the deeper Indigo symbolizes a mystical sense of wisdom, self-mastery, and spiritual realization.
So, whether you’re trying to add depth into a small room, increase a sense of calm in your home, or even perhaps add a youthful cheer into an otherwise dark space, blue is your color.
