Beautiful Blues

The color blue is quite often the favorite color of many people, and is seen in a lot of home decor because of its complementary hues and serence qualities. 

We see the deep shades of different blues represented in the ocean, and the soft hues of blue scattered across the sky. Two of our world's natural elements boast this peaceful and calming color, so consider a nature-inspired feeling of the outdoors through use of the color blue in your home.

Blue Bedding

Blue offers peace and tranquility for the mind, as the body actually does produce "calming" chemicals when exposed to or surrounded by the color. This is why you will find it common for blue to be the paint color choice in the bedroom. Your bedroom should be a space in your home where you can escape from the stresses of everyday life. With blue, that should be easy to do.

Seen here is our pretty America's Lighthouses Coverlet and the Made in Maine Freeport Ticking Stripe Blanket; all blue and all extraordinarily comfortable.

Studies show that people are more productive, think clearer and are more positive in a blue room. Adding favorite or favorable imagery to blue items can enhance these qualities anywhere in your home. In the kitchen, a Personalized Wine Chiller, canister or other accessory adds complementing color and functional quality to a counter, island or bar.

Gazing into someone's blue eyes, enjoying the lovely blue sky on a sunny day, celebrating the birth of a new baby, spending a day by the  shore - blue is a color of family, expansion, creativity and communication. Blue is comfortable, crisp and cool, like a new pair of  jeans or a delightful breeze; from a distance out in space, our planet  Earth is a swirly blue and white marble. Let  these beautiful blues inspire you, with the help of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
