The Power of Color
Blues create a peaceful, inviting mood. They can be elegant or whimsical depending on the base colors. An icy blue tinged with gray can be quietly elegant while an aqua can be lively and fun. A robin's egg blue can speak of comfort and whimsy. A cobalt lends richness and depth to a space.
Now can we be honest here? I remember the last time blue was the "it" color. Home colors reflected that trend. For a year or two, those colors were wonderful, then the trend passed. Later when I went through those homes as a Realtor, they looked so dated. Definitely vintage for a particular year.
My advice? Enjoy the trend if you are a blue lover, but enjoy it in small doses. A pillow, comforter, or accent wall in the blue of your choice does not commit you to the color forever. Then you can flex when the color wheel moves on to the next color du jour.
Are you a blue fan? What colors draw you in? What colors do you find exciting?
