Blue is a cold color, often associated with winter weather or crisp air. It has cooling effects, as well as anesthetic and anti-inflammatory “properties”. Lowering blood pressure and relieving stress is beneficial for frayed nerves, and blue is excellent for those who need peace and quiet. We are witnessing its revival in kitchen and dining room designs, as it is believed to reduce craving and appetite.
Blue, and in particular its delicate shades (light, pastel hues, and all types of subtle sky blues) proves perfect for bedrooms, as it reduces blood pressure, has calming effects and is conducive to peaceful sleep. It may be combined with all shades of grey.
Perfect as a background, grey is ideal for places intended to be neutral.
