Are you feeling blue? Maybe it has to do with the color blue you have in your home. Let me explain. Color is powerful and can sway your mood depending on it’s warm or cool hues. Reds, yellows, oranges and beige or creamy colors are WARM while Blues, greens and grays are COOL. Remember the color wheel from elementary school?
But color can be tricky because some cool colors can actually feel warmer and that’s why this week I’m answering C Schaan’s question from Youtube who asks how do you pick a warm blue?
Well, C Schaan every color has varying values some will appear brighter and others darker. Lighter colors have white more white in them and you guessed it the darker colors have more black in them. Usually the warmer blues are lighter and will have more yellow or green undertones in them. If you want to use a warmer blue in your home stick with colors between 5,000 and 8,000 on this color temperature scale.
Blue typically makes one feel — refreshed, tranquil, serene — which is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, offices or nurseries.
Stay with warmer blues so the space doesn’t feel so depressing.
Turquoise has remained a popular trend color for several years now. It’s a warm, ocean blue heavily influenced by green. Lighter tones of turquoise are perfect for the bedroom. They are not only serene, but relaxing.
Soft sky blues or light blues also feel very warm. This is a very Zen-like color that will not overwhelm your space, and it will make your white trim and furnishings look even more brilliant.
Just remember if you’re using a color on the wall add more neutral furniture or accessories so the space doesn’t feel overwhelming, especially if you’re staging your home. Don’t forget to comment below telling me what’s your favorite blue!
