Blue and turquoise

why is it when I mention blue to my clients they retreat in horror and say “oh its so cold”.  Yes its a cool colour I agree but right at the moment with Christmas acoming its a real antidote to all the red and green that you see around this time of the year.    But lets look at blue, its a strong confident colour, its the colour of the skies, the deepest oceans, the azure blue of the mediterranean, for this reason it brings about a calmness and tranquility  and in a bedroom can aid sleep. However it can be strong and powerful, think of the crashing waves, deep thunderous moody skies.    Blue mixed with red gives you a rich warmth and produces many shades to the depth of rich purple and mauve, a very spiritual colour.

These are some of the rooms that have inspired me decorate in various shades of blue
