colour blue has a quiet, peaceful resonance, a thoughtful and dignified
quality that is invaluable in a noisy, busy world. Information overload
is fast becoming a problem that is affecting our mental and physical
health. The special healing quality of blue creates physical space
and also allows us plenty of room to think things over and put our
lives into perspective.
This week we feature
a special 'blue' room for a 14 year old who is a cricket enthusiast,
and just happens to love the colour blue. Most people state blue as
their favourite colour. We are particularly attracted to this colour
when we need to spend some quiet time on our own.
blue affects a bedroom:
To make a room feel large, decorate in pale blue. Generally, blue
has the effect of making, walls recede so that a room appears bigger.
We used light blue in the wall and white in the ceiling. We placed
beige tone porcelain tiles in the floor. So, there three combination
blue, white ivory-beige-makes a real harmonious scheme and turn the
room into a comfortable and relaxing space without seeming dark and
cold. However, if light blue is mixed with darker tones, it creates
a more sophisticated look. So, we used a slightly deeper blue shade
as a border, along the top of the room wall. To create more contrast,
use pale blue next to warm colours, as its coolness makes the blue
areas recede, adding dimension to a room.
furniture and blue room:
In Victorian homes, English people love to combine antique furniture
with blue carpet or indigo bedcover. We also used natural wooden polish
in the cabinet bed and bookshelf to create a real elegant ambience.
& blue curtain:
The curtains frame the window with the darkest tones of blue and indigo
but are sheer enough to keep the overall look light and modern. The
tab-top heading suits the contemporary character of the scheme.
linen and cushion cover:
Covers and pillowcases in fresh brilliant sky blue and motif-printed
bed linen in a brighter shade
of turquoise ensures that the bed is the focal point of the room.
in the bathroom:
Blue and white schemes have also been popular in the many different
styles. We used blue and white tiles in the bathroom. Teamed with
the white wash basin with silver shower enclosure, the bathroom is
a real attractive place for refreshing oneself in.
In various cultures,
blue is seen as providing a link with the heavens and the spirit,
giving it an aura of protection. It is a colour that gives out a message
of trust, friendship, and loyalty. It provides the soothing, yet intimate
ambience that one would love to have in one's place of relaxation.
