Color Of The Month - I've Got The Blues
Blue is the most popular color in the world. It’s the color associated with the sky, the ocean, baby boys, and the Na’vi from ‘Avatar’. It’s also our Color Of The Month at Apt2B! Here’s why blue is such a special color.
A History Of Blues
Blue Is A Deceptive Color
Singin' The Blues
“I’ve got the blues” has become synonymous with “I’m experiencing crippling depression and sadness.” But where did this idea originate? Blue is usually considered the color of harmony, the color of masculinity, and it’s even been shown to promote concentration. It’s a serene color that has a balancing power. So what’s up with the whole depression thing? You can thank the British for that. Their fear of the devil and addiction to alcohol led them to create the term “blue devils” to describe the intense visual hallucinations they experienced during alcohol withdrawal. I’d like to know exactly what they were drinking back then because I normally just get a headache. After that blues music took up the mantle and the rest is history.
Blue's For You
Blue is a hallmark of the design world, whether it be home decor or fashion. It’s one of the three primary colors on the color wheel and it’s the most common color for business suits. In other words, it’s got some serious range. It’s a fantastic color for your home because it imbues your space with a feeling of freshness, calm, and even dependability. Light shades help make a room feel larger while darker shades make a room feel more regal and grounded. Blue is a strong enough color to be the dominant shade in your room and it’s balanced enough to function as the perfect accent to the rest of your decor. Its versatility is what makes it such a popular choice for the home.
