Use calming blue for bedroom bliss

Soothe your body and mind with serene shades of blue.

Enigmatic, vivid and soothing, blue evokes memories of inky midnight skies, sparkling teal wadis and vast oceans. Blue is said to decrease blood pressure, slow your heart rate and reduce stress, making it the perfect shade for bedrooms.

Blue works well for most spaces, but it’s important to find the best shade for the size of your room. Pale blues like sky blue, aqua and ice blue enhance space and will help to make your bedroom seem larger and brighter. Darker shades like denim, indigo, or slate blue are sophisticated and warm and make a room seem cosier. If you choose a light blue as the main colour in a room, balance it with warm-coloured fabrics and furnishings.
