Blue is considered calming, relaxing and serene, and it is often recommended for bedrooms and bathrooms. If you opt for a light blue as the primary colour in a room, balance it with warm hues for the furnishings and fabrics. Pairing the light shade of blue with whites and light grays, it can make the calming and relaxing feeling even greater, while looking great


To encourage relaxation in social areas such as family rooms, living rooms or large kitchens, consider warmer blues, such as periwinkle, or bright blues, such as cerulean or turquoise. Blue is known to have a calming effect when used as the main colour of a room — but go for softer shades. Dark blue has the opposite effect, evoking feelings of sadness. Refrain from using darker blues in your main colour scheme.
