A message from the designer: As an interior designer I get to work on all kinds of projects, mainly solving through our clients creative blocks to transform their spaces. And although colour isn’t everyones cup of tea, its my job to show you how it would look in your space, while educating how to use it correctly. 

Personally, blue is a colour I just can’t see past! I love it and the way it makes me feel in a room. Coming from a coastal town, I think it reminds me of the sky, sea, the beach and how great I feel when I go down there on walks with my dog or look back at childhood memories growing up.

So now getting into why you should be using blue, lets get into it!

Calming Oasis:

Picture this: You step into your home after a long day, and instantly, a wave of calm washes over you. That's the magic of incorporating shades of blue into your living space. Derived from the vast expanse of the sky and the soothing rhythm of the sea, blue hues create an atmosphere that promotes relaxation and tranquility. Whether it's a gentle powder blue or a deep navy, these tones act as a visual escape, offering a sanctuary from the chaos of the outside world.

Versatility at its Finest:

One of the many reasons blue stands out as a design powerhouse is its incredible versatility. From the soft, muted tones that evoke a beachy vibe to the bold, rich navy that exudes sophistication, blue adapts effortlessly to any style or theme. Imagine a coastal-inspired living room adorned with sandy neutrals and ocean blues or a sleek, modern kitchen featuring deep indigo accents – the possibilities are as vast as the open sea.

Wellness-Worthy Design:

In the pursuit of creating a home that nurtures both body and mind, the choice of colors plays a pivotal role. Blue, with its proven psychological impact on promoting feelings of calmness and serenity, seamlessly integrates wellness into your living environment. Consider introducing this soothing shade to your bedroom, creating a restful retreat that ensures a night of blissful sleep.
