Colour speaking. Blue, towards the energy
Blue is a well-liked, timeless and engrained in every culture colour. That is a bold statement, however, proved by extensive research. According to Lee Ellis and Christopher Fick study 45% of surveyed men pointed out blue as their favourite colour. Women chose it second with green(24,9%) being their number one.
To obtain the optimal result you need to choose the right shade of the colour. Light and even blurred hues of blue improve motor skills and stimulate cognitive development. It is particularly beneficial to managers, directors and people who need to make decisions on the spot. Pale colours have calming and relaxing effect, they work perfectly in chill out zones. Due to their “numbing effect” you need to cautiously use them in everyday space, unless it is a dynamic and nervous environment where calming your emotions is advisable.
Energy and creativity
By replacing white with sandy beige you can create a much warmer space. A coastal look will make you feel rested. Blue goes together with greys but you need to ensure they complement and look good together. Blue and green rooms improve work and, as proven by research, this colour combination reduces mistakes being made. Remember to always have one of the shades more vivid; colours too subdued will cause sleepiness and can worsen our mood.
Blue is universal. It finds its place in modern trends as well as classic arrangements. In workspaces it has a beneficial effect on staff, therefore, is worth taking into consideration when planning an interior design.
