As history seems to repeat itself, we’re reminded to treat our home as our haven. Add a much-needed breath of fresh air to your spaces to refocus on a horizon brimming with optimism. Seek solace in design infused with calming blues that make us feel serene and centered. Shake the end of summer blues and play with color’s natural ability to influence emotions to create a space streamlined for your serenity.
In need of instant inspiration, look up! With all the challenges the past few years have presented, find solitude in the bright blue sky above us. Bring the outside in with light and airy blues signaling wellness-based design. Self-soothe with Dulux’s Color of the Year 2022, ‘Bright Skies’ or Benjamin Moore’s ‘Bird Egg’. Incorporate these light dusty blues into bathrooms or shared living spaces to conjure a natural radiance and a fresh start. Simultaneously uplifting and light, this holistic hue is apt for a sanguine sanctuary.
Refresh and reset with Hellenistic hues of blue. Oceanic brights engage our senses, encouraging deep expansion and expression. Inspired by our Destination Inspiration series, dotting combinations of Mediterranean blue across doorways, furniture and accessories add a restorative shock to the system. Refresh your palette with rich Aegean tones like Ralph Lauren Blue Reef or Benjamin Moore Paddington Blue to wash away a dull mood and reinvigorate stagnant energy.
With hopes for a sense of renewal, charismatic periwinkle blue hues with violet-red undertones offer a reminder to embrace the ambiguity of future possibilities. Look towards Pantone’s Color of the Year 2022, ‘Veri Peri’, to revolutionize your interiors with a joyous attitude and dynamic presence. Suited for a multitude of materials and textures, incorporate this eye-catching hue through a painted wall or accent decor pieces. Combining the constancy of blue with grounding red undertones empowers us to move forward with courageous creativity.
