What Colour Part 6: Blue

 


Visitors: 328

Roses are red, violets are blue. Red gets a rose’s glory and, like the violet, blue shrinks into the background - literally. Red objects appear closer than others and blue objects appear farther away. Artists use this little trick to bring depth to their paintings.

The contrast between red and blue give the illusion of depth perception.

Being red’s antagonist, blue symbolizes relaxation, peace and tranquillity. Blue gives the illusion of credibility and professionalism, and so, became the most popular colour to be worn in court.

Blue can represent authority, business, security, stability and trust. It can also leave an stodgy, conservative and judicial feeling.

Blue helps us to communicate on an emotional level and get in touch with our feelings. Blue brings truth, loyalty, harmony and patience to the home.

Blue is a wonderful colour for a bedroom. It encourages rest and relaxation and makes time go by more quickly. Be careful to incorporate other colours as well though - an overdose of blue can lead to sadness and depression.

It also acts as an appetite suppressant - so you are better pre-pared to battle those midnight cravings. Too bad I painted my bedroom sunshine yellow! Maybe it’s time for a makeover. . .
