Next on our Color Roundup is blue − the calm, tranquil color of the sky and sea. Blue is considered a dependable color; it's always there for us. In fact most people answer blue when asked their favorite color. Although people tend to shy away from using it in their home.
It may be because people think of blue as a sad color. But it can actually be relaxing, restful and meditative, especially the deeper, smokier shades. And for rooms that are more sociable, like the kitchen or living room, consider lighter, brighter shades. But if too much blue does make you feel down, just add a few warm, colorful accents.
