For many people, it is the absolute favorite among the colors – the color of summer: blue. Whether red, green or yellow – they all have their own interesting stories to tell about the effect, symbolism and meaning. But blue seems to fascinate the majority of people the most. For it is the symbol of water and air, of the infinite vastness of the sky and the boundless depth of the sea. Blue is very multi-faceted not only in its nuances, but also in cultural significance. Take a ride into the blue, load at the blue hour or just blue – especially in the glorious summer time.
Colors obviously affect our well-being. In most cases it is memories that give us certain qualities. So we often associate beautiful pictures with blue. We usually think of holidays by the sea or a free summer’s day in the blossoming nature. The view of an azure horizon awakens a strong longing in us, calms and relaxes at the same time. Blue helps to find inner and outer peace and reduces stress and hectic. It provides the balancing energy our body needs to cope calmly and calmly with the increasingly hectic everyday life. As a meditative color, blue symbolizes trust and reliability.
Of course the blue also has its cool side. Snow and ice also have a blue soothing shade, and water usually feels cold. These are properties that have a very positive effect on the kitchen and bathroom design because they radiate freshness and cleanliness. Whether the blue is warm or cold, radiant or dull does not only depend on the color itself. The perception of light and the colors of the environment also play a decisive role in perception. Tones from the orange-red color scale make the blue shine. Soft beige nuances soothe it and create a cheerful and cozy atmosphere. Combined with matt white, gold and silver, blue looks very noble and exudes calm and deepening. For harmonious color compositions, Mother Nature still offers the best templates.
When designing a blue kitchen you should definitely think of the surfaces of the furniture. Smooth surfaces reflect more light, making them colder than natural, uneven structures. The last ones swallow much more light and thus show less shine. And if you decide on it, the cozy atmosphere of a country kitchen gets into the house. Of course, decorative accessires should not be missing. Beautiful are blue glazed vessels made of ceramic, glass or porcelain.
