Feeling Bluesy? Just Pick a Shade.
Perhaps more than any other color, blue lets you cover a wide spectrum of moods. From evoking a tranquil feeling of serenity with softer hues, to high energy electric-like vibes, blue lets you dial in a variety of lifestyle looks and emotions. Starting with curtains of blue or teal, it’s easy and fun to layer a room around a base of blue. Or explore your options by considering turquoise or navy blue curtains. By starting with window coverings, blue allows you to make an initial color “statement”, and provides a platform for additional décor touches. Wall paint, picture frames, throw rugs, glass decanters, even furniture can all include blue hues to help tie a room together. You may not realize it, but a bookcase dressed in blue, accented with contrasting whites in the form of books or decorative items can complement blue and white curtains. It can also prove to be quite functional as well. A blown glass vase, in a soft blue tone, evokes images of chic South Beach, especially when paired with darker blues and contrasting whites. For a nautical ambiance that offers hints of the Aegean Sea, consider brighter cobalt blue accessories to complement those navy blue curtains or roller shades. You’ll be amazed at the spectrum of blue colors this rainbow staple offers!
Let the Pharaohs Be Your Guide.
The Egyptians discovered how to use the color blue beginning with lapis lazuli about 6,000 years ago. They combined it with gold to adorn the tombs of the pharaohs, or powdering it into eye shadow for Cleopatra. Over the centuries, blue has become a distinct symbol for royalty. Because it is so abundant, surrounding us from clear blue skies to the blue lakes and oceans that conjure up vacation and adventure, blue represents more than just a color. Rather, it can create a lifestyle. Lying between violet and green on the visual spectrum, blue comes in many shades, including navy, sky, indigo, and of course, Egyptian. Cobalt blue, a synthetic pigment, was invented in 1802 and was popular with Vincent van Gogh and other impressionist painters. From blue jeans to the blue suit, blue offers so many reasons to include this color in heavy doses. Whether your decorating begins with navy and white striped curtains or aqua curtains, or another of the many shades this color covers, your home will reflect a mood and feeling that’s unique.
Start With a Blue Border.
When starting out, it is often best to begin by letting either furniture or window treatments serve as a base or border color. Furniture can consist of a blue suede sofa or loveseat, or perhaps it’s a soft blue recliner chair. Add in blue curtains of teal, navy, or even duck egg, and you’ve gotten off to a great start. Now have some fun with a blue throw or quilt, wall sculptures, or porcelain vases. Throw in a complimentary color, such as white or light grey for just that right touch. You’ll be surprised and delighted at how far the color blue can take you in your decorating adventure! Selecting a theme, such as water, allows you to include a host of accessory items in a room to help accentuate a feeling. Who could miss a stunning miniature replica of the cruise ship The Queen Mary, or the Titanic, when it’s enveloped in a room that’s adorned with a maritime theme accented by blue! 3 Day Blinds has a terrific selection of blue curtains and other stunning window fashions to help carry your idea or theme from start to finish.
