Color blue

Blue is the pure color of a clear sky; the primary color between green and violet in the visible spectrum, an effect of light with a wavelength between 450 and 500 nm.

Blue is calming. It can be strong and steadfast or light and friendly. Almost everyone likes some shade of the color blue.

A natural color, from the blue of the sky, it is a universal color. Its cool, calming effect makes time pass more quickly and it can help you sleep. It’s a good color for bedrooms. However, too much blue could dampen spirits.

Culture and Symbolism:

In many diverse cultures blue is significant in religious beliefs, brings peace, or is believed to keep the bad spirits away.

Using Different Shades:

  • A deep royal shade, indigo, or azure conveys richness and perhaps even a touch of superiority.
  • Navy is almost black and is a bit warmer than lighter blues. Combine a light and dark blue to convey trust and truthfulness — banker’s colors.
  • Although it is a year-round color, pastel blues, especially alongside pinks and pale yellows suggest Springtime while deep blue is a colder weather color.
  • Create a conservative but sophisticated look with subtle contrast by combining light and dark shades of blue.
