We gaze up and daydream at vast skyline overhead, we look down and ponder the powerful blues of the deep sea. Lighter blues are associated with freedom, openness, healing, inspiration & tranquility.

The shade Cerulean refers to a range of blues, from a sky blue to a deep azure. In Latin, cerulean means “Sky” or “heavens”. It was a favorite of impressionist painters of the late 19th century, that created these beautiful dream-like landscapes, that impressionism is so known for.
When it comes to interior color palettes, blue is an eternal favorite. It is one of few colors that has universal appeal regardless of design style. Green and blue, being neighbors on the color wheel, are always a home run when paired together. Blues with crisp whites, and lively greens create a fresh inviting vibe for your home. Another favorite is pairing coral or soft pinks with varying shades of blue. A touch of coral is the cheerful pop that a soft blue needs to come to life.
