Part four - Blue is often voted as the most popular worldwide colour and is commonly associated with trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence and faith. Blue-sky thinking is certainly something that happens when people are surrounded with a blue hue.
It has a calming effect on the mind and body and has also been said to improve health, making it an ideal colour for an office or a relaxing space such as a living room or bedroom. Dark and deep blues represent knowledge, power and integrity and also evoke a sense of luxury and meaning.

The key colour from Painthouse:
Aria Blue - A young and sprightly cobalt blue paint, she’s a primary colour that brings a crisp alternative to navy.
“I’ve always had a love affair with midnight blue but have never found a room that can take the full effect. I’d love to use it in a bathroom. One of my favourite hues is the Jardin Majorelle blue as seen at the celebrated gardens in Marrakesh. Blue has the ability to brighten up any dull day but when paired with a bright blue sky it’s something else. There are so many complementary colours including yellow and orange. Accessorising and styling with blue is also really easy and I’d say that it’s a great choice for those that don’t want to stick to a specific colour scheme.”
