Blue and indigo
During the summer there will appear a lot of color inspiration with new colors each week here on purodeco. This week it’s shades of blue and indigo, my new favorites. It seems strange after all of these “non” blue years that I have developed a new love for the color Blue. Enjoy these pictures with lots of blue inspiration!
I’ve always been very fond of and fascinated by colors. Even though I have for a long time used a neutral base at home, I constantly add new colors in terms of various details. But I constantly change my “color mood” as well and switch colors straight as it is. Frequently I wonder why I suddenly feel the need of a particular color. This fall I begin to study the Feng Shui and I hope that I’ll figure out more about why this is so. I will continually share ideas and new knowledge with my readers here on purodeco. For now I hope that you enjoy this splash of bright colors!
Almost everyone enjoys looking into a blue sky and across a lake or the sea, there is something calming about an expanse of blue. It appears to free the mind.
Blue is a popular color and is what I call a safe color to use with interior decorating. It is striking as a blue and white combination – like blue and white china. Indigo is a vegetableand natural dye that can produce gorgeously deep, rich and very subtle hues of the color blue.
Historically, indigo blue was called royale blue. When indigo dyes were first brought to Europe from India in the Middle Ages, it was so expensive that only royalty could afford it. And it was actually a punishable crime to be caught wearing anything indigo blue if you weren’t royalty.
In Feng Shui blue is the water element. It is a magnificent color – calm, tranquility and peace. From clear sky blue to soft aqua blue of the ocean and deep indigo blue – there is an endless variety of blue color tones you can choose for your home. Feng shui-wise, color blue is excellent for use in the following feng shui bagua areas of your home: East (Health), Southeast (Money), and North (Career).
