This article will be the first in a series I plan on writing about color and how it has a lot of influence in our day-to-day lives. Color gives us direction (red, yellow, green light), it warns us of possible dangers ahead (caution yellow), and it gives a sense of belonging (red, white & blue). Color is important to us and it has an impact on the choices we make.
The Color Blue
Blue is seen as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The color of sky and the ocean, blue is perceived as a constant in our lives. Blue affects us physically and mentally as a cooling color. It invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming; however, not all blues are serene and sedate. Blue is the most popular overall favorite color by both men and women.
Companies Identified Primarily With Blue
- Best Buy
- Blue Shield
- The Gap
- Tiffany & Co.
The Color Green
Green occupies more space in the spectrum visible to the human eye than most colors and is second only to blue as a favorite color. Green is the pervasive color, making it an ideal backdrop in interior design because we are so used to seeing it everywhere. The natural greens, from forest to lime, are seen as tranquil and refreshing, with a natural balance of cool and warm (blue and yellow) undertones. Green is considered the color of peace and ecology. Green soothes and relaxes us both mentally and physically.
Popular Phrases That Include the Color Green:

Blue & Green Paint Colors For The Home can be energizing yet welcoming. Re-invent the classics by using a leafy green for walls with touches of blue on soft furnishings. A few touches of warm color, like an eau de nil green, with mostly neutral colors will enliven a room. Try a different range of a blue you love…instead of turquoise, venture into sapphire or delphinium blue.
