Light and warmer tones of blue are known to lower blood pressure and heart rate which makes them very relaxing colours to have around. Darker tones can evoke feelings of sadness.

Rooms —

good for the study, home office or anywhere you want to be more productive. Also great for bathrooms and especially relaxing in the bedroom. It is the least appetising colour, so not so good for dining rooms or kitchens.

Home Decor Styles —

Hamptons, Coastal, Contemporary, Shabby Chic.

Mood —

depending on the tone, it works for all the sanctuary moods. Brighter tones for Wanderlust and Creative, softer, pale tones for Serene and Nostalgic.

Sanctuary Tips —

a perfect colour for any sanctuary, just remember that darker tones can become depressing, so only use them as accents.
