Blue is the most universally chosen favorite color. It crosses cultures, ages and genders and is often considered the “safe” color choice. Choosing a saturated shade of blue with a small touch of green that can add depth and drama, Sherwin Williams pushed the “safe” envelope and added interest to this selection. It can pair beautifully with yellow (as pictured) or a chartreuse or lime green for pop. It can also be softened with light and airy neutrals to give a more tranquil effect. Blue is a “cool” color and will make a room feel larger by causing the walls to visually recede.
Colors can have a psychological influence on us as well. Blue can evoke many feeling such as calm tranquility (the sky), opulence (think “royal blue) and cleanliness. Many corporations use blue in their logos to inspire trust. It is also the color of the 5th Chakra – the throat – which represents the ability to communicate effectively.
Please check out this interesting color online at Sherwin-Williams or at your local Sherwin Williams dealer.
