The magic of blue color is present throughout the year. This lovely color is a great addition to every design scheme. Blue is the color of calmness, meditation, inspiration, communication.
The coldness of blue color greatly “silences” the heat of the remaining two primary colors – fiery red and sunny yellow. By combining these three colors, all the other colors of the spectrum are created. For example, the union of blue and red brings purple into this colorful world, while blue and yellow create a sight for sore eyes – green color.
The primary colors blue, red and yellow are often used for decorating children’s rooms, as well as other areas in which we want to encourage activity and learning.
The orange color is made by combining red and yellow. This warm color highlights and complements the cool color of the sky. Let’s recall the aesthetic effect of a terracotta vase on a blue tablecloth, pillows in the color of peach on a dark blue blanket. The colors blue and orange are opposites that attract and bring each other into balance.
If you want to create a room for relaxing, the harmonious color scheme is more suitable than the active complementary one. Combine blue tones with purple, pink or green. Blue and white combination is always a great choice. Harmony of blue and white creates the essence of a relaxing Mediterranean lifestyle.
This popular color reflects light, which is particularly evident in the use of shiny fabrics and surfaces. Fabrics such as silk or organza in shades of blue are very decorative, as well as objects made of glass in blue.
