Our clients always ask us – will bold colors, like blue, trend out? And our answer is always the same: “Trends will come and go, so focus on creating a space that ignites your life day to day and truly makes you happy!”
When we start designing and working with color spectrums, we typically find that our clients gravitate towards blue or green (you can find our green paint color guide here).
Blue is one of the colors that we feel is timeless. Incorporating blue is a beautiful way to add color to spaces that don’t get a lot of natural light or may feel small and dark.
Also – ever heard of the blue light theory? It’s real! Blue light does boost alertness, helps memory and brain function, and elevates mood. It also regulates your body’s natural wake and sleep cycle.
If you want to learn more about why blue paint colors should be in your home, we loved Kathy Kuo’s article, which you can dive into here.
Here are a few of our implementations of blue paint colors throughout the years:
Naval, Sherwin Williams
This deep blue, with its cool gray-green undertone, brings a meditative serenity to your space. Perfect for your study or office.
Waterloo, Sherwin Williams
Lose yourself in this deep, rain-soaked blue. Tempered by tones of warm gray, this color evokes the calmness after a storm.
The Mulberry Circle Kitchen Refresh
Long story short – blue won’t trend out, because of its calming effect in a space & its extreme versatility.
We hope to encourage more of our clients to be bold in their color choices and cling to the colors that make them happy – no matter what they may be!
