A Blue Room- Are you True blue?


Blue is the color of the sky and sea. 
It is often associated with depth and stability. 
Like the air we breath!

It is also associated with healing, tranquility,understanding and softness. 
 It releases calming chemicals in the body and soothes nightmares.
 Perfect for a goodnight sleep!

In some cultures it wards off evil spirits...
 kind of interesting huh?

(Sawicki)










Blue paper can help you remember information. Boy, we need that!
 It has a cool vibration that helps with communication and helps you relax.

(James Howard)










.

 Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. 
Like a close friend.

(Dan Carither)
















Blue also symbolizes loyalty, wisdom, intelligence, faith, and truth. Are you true blue?
 If not, what is your favorite color?

  8. A couple of years ago, I moved to Dana Point so that my son could take advantage of the Drama Department at Dana Hills High. I didn't realize that one of the side benefits was going to be my daily walk at the beach. I always marvel at the colors; blue/green water, blue sky...last night mother nature decided to accent all her blues with the yummiest pinks and corals.

    All of your pictures are just beautiful! Thank you for a lovely post.

    All the best, Cindy

  11. Blue is a color, in all its tints and hues, that we're being asked to use in many of our design schemes these days and Sally and I love it. Can't pin point why... The economy? Or simply a reaction to the trendy citrus colors we've been seeing - kind of like a complimentry color thing?

    Cheers,
    John

  12. Love love this post. I actually found myself taking a deep breath, I guess what they say about blue is true. It is an involuntary decompression that happens. The same thing happens when I go into my own Master bedroom, which is a soft blue and cream combination. I have always had a blue master bedroom and I guess after 40 some odd years I always will, Kathysue

  13. I ADORE the fabric on that chair in the first picture and that bedroom is really, really amazing! I had heard that about warding off spirits - apparently that's why the houses in Greece are painted blue and white...I didn't know that until recently! Beautiful post - nicely done!

  21. I'm a true-blue gal! I'm obsessed with it, my family and friends would say...
    Every room in my cottage is in pale blue and white, with gold leaf accents.
    I design my own fabrics and wallpapers so I get the shade of blue I like, and patterns, just right.
    I am slowly decorating my way through each room with my own patterns.
    Thank you for the inspirational photos! I especially love the Gustavian blue chest with the white detailing...
