Blue – the color of endless skies and tranquil seas – has historically been a favorite and currently is enjoying a renaissance in interiors. Like its color wheel neighbor green, it is associated with the environment, a strong social issue today, and therefore has staying power, making it a good long-term selection to consider in your color schemes.
Love the subtle beach accents and the finish detail at the carpet edge.
Why is blue such a great choice to use in your bedroom? Studies done on productivity for the war effort in the 1940’s showed that when people were placed in a blue room, their heart rate, blood pressure and body temperature decreased. Therefore is it a very tranquil, calming color to gaze upon and …for what it’s worth…perfect in a bedroom!
Navy blue is wonderful when contrasted against a crisp white! Also note that while these walls are painted a strong and powerful shade of blue, there is plenty of white space in the casings and wainscoting to keep the space from being oppressive.
Don’t forget the blues found in views, florals, and Chinese porcelain.
