Blue is the colour of the mind and affects humans rather mentally than physically.
A sense of calmness, freedom and serenity is associated with the lighter tones of blue, while darker and stronger shades work as an intellectual stimulus.
Blue colour is one of the primary colours associated with our nature. Almost everyone enjoys looking at bright blue sky, calming seas and oceans; hence the calming effect on our mind.
Within interior design and interior styling, light blue tones can be used to expand walls while the stronger shades will provide an opposite effect.
The catwalks of 2015 Spring/Summer season were full of blue hues, ranging from calming powder blue, through sapphire to darker navy blue and indigo, which also had an impact on furniture, interior accessories and home décor. The trend continues to be big in the upcoming Autumn/Winter season too.
