Love blue? It’s no surprise.
Blue is a universally favored color, and its appeal is deeply rooted in psychology, biology, and cultural associations. Here’s a look at why people are drawn to blue and its energetic essence:
Calm & Serenity: Blue is often linked to calmness and serenity. It evokes feelings of tranquility, much like a clear blue sky or a serene lake. This calming effect can be particularly pronounced in lighter shades of blue.
Trust & Reliability: Blue is commonly associated with trustworthiness and reliability. This is one reason why many businesses and institutions use blue in their logos and branding.
Depth & Stability: The color symbolizes depth and stability, reflecting foundational elements like the deep sea and the expansive sky.
Intelligence & Wisdom: Blue is also linked to intellect, wisdom, and clarity.
Nature & Universality: Blue reminds us of nature, specifically the vast sky and the oceans. These universal elements resonate with many people regardless of where they come from.
Coolness & Refreshment: Being a cool color, blue can evoke feelings of refreshment and cleanliness.
Spirituality & Order: In many cultures and religions, blue has spiritual significance and is seen as a color that denotes order and divinity.
Communication: Light blue especially is linked with communication, expression, and empathy.
Energetically, blue is connected with the throat chakra in some spiritual traditions, which governs communication, truth, and expression. Its energy is one of soothing, healing, flowing communication, and deeper inner journeys. See my Throat Chakra collection of energy art here.
The appeal of blue is multifaceted, grounded in both its natural ubiquity and its vast range of cultural, psychological, and spiritual connotations.
Blue’s universal appeal and versatility make it a favored choice in commercial products, from fashion to paints. Its range, from deep navy to soft sky blue, fits various styles and moods. Industries gravitate towards blue due to its consistent popularity, its ability to evoke trust and calmness, and its adaptability across seasons and trends. As a result, products in blue hues cater to both aesthetic trends and deep-rooted emotional connections consumers have with the color.
What’s in it for you? With the prevailing popularity of blue, you’ll find an abundance of home decor options in this hue, ensuring effortless harmonization in your interiors. For example, see a variety of my energy art and Edesigns I created using various shades of blue as the primary color in this Saturday Night Live Art Show.
My “The Blues” fractal art collection draws inspiration from Alaska’s breathtaking palette of blues, manifesting in the sky, water, and icy expanses. The state showcases a mesmerizing spectrum, from deep ocean blues to the ethereal glacial blue – a shade that remains elusive to photographs. Our lakes often shimmer in a unique turquoise, tinted by glacial silt. The accompanying photo offers a glimpse into Alaska’s rich tapestry of blues.
Here is an Edesign of a dining room spotlighting the art, encapsulating the “bring the outside in” concept. By mirroring the ocean’s blue on the walls, it blurs the boundaries between the external environment and the interior space, offering a seamless transition.
This design is available in a wide variety of home decor products in my store on Society6.
Another fractal art series of mine is called “the Sea” because it reminds me of the ocean with white caps on a cloudy, windy day. I see the ocean from my house here in Seward Alaska, and we have plenty of wild windy days! Looking at the white caps is an indication of whether the boats will go out each day and how sea sick you might get! The colors of the ocean change with the light.
This Edesign highlights the art by using neutral tones for the wall color and furnishings to keep the focus on the art and exterior view of the sea.
Here is an example of a global style Greek living room in blue, using “The Sea” energy art on the walls.
