Why We Love Blue
The colour blue is relatively new.. Thousands of years ago – most cultures didn’t even have a word for the colour blue. There was black, white, yellow, green and red. But no blue.
The Egyptians created a dye from lapis lazuli. From there came the most expensive pigment ultramarine. And finally the colour Blue was launched.
Today it is used to describe energy amongst many emotions. In the colour wheel because we see blue in the sky and the sea, we associate blue with depth and stability. In turn this leads to trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith and truth.
Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness. Dark blue represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness.
No wonder so many of us gravitate towards the colour blue.
In our interiors, fashion and even our tableware. Blue compliments and goes with everything.
Blue may have been the last colour to be discovered but today it is probably our most true classical colour.
This year we even had a Super Blue Blood Moon.
