Tones of blue: ideas to decorate with different shades of color

The psychology of colors shows how they act in our brain, and can give different sensations about an object, a space, for example.

From scientific studies and color theory, we know that colors are assimilated by us through vision, which rapidly sends stimuli to our brain, which processes the information and sends in response different types of reactions.

In areas such as advertising and marketing, marketing and design, each type of reaction that a color or a set of colors produces in us is studied to be applied to their products. It is not by chance that brands like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Linked In have their visual identities based on the color blue.

This is because the response our brain sends when it receives blue is associated with ideas such as trust, intelligence, sincerity, tranquility, and serenity.

In nature, these associations gain strength when we think of the blue of the sky and the sea, which guarantee stability, depth and relaxation for those who visualize them.

This tranquility and relaxation can be one of the explanations of the choice of blue as the main color of the social networks mentioned above. After all, we could stay immersed in them for a long time without feeling discomfort, which would be unlikely if their color was red, for example.

In decoration, this color is much loved and used especially for its reassuring effect, which does not tire the look. It can be used for various reasons and to gain different forms depending on the variation of the tone (there are more than 100 classified and named in the market) and the combination that is made.

Shades of blue and orange

For those who know the color disc, you know full well that, as bold as it may seem, this combination of vibrant colors works amazingly. This is because according to the theory of colors, orange is the opposite color-complementary to the blue, creating a contrast that promotes the balance of the environment. The most recommended is to use one of the colors as the main (or the background color) and invest in detail with the other.

Shades of blue with brown

Generally associated with more serious and sober environments, the combination of blue and brown works very well in most rooms, as brown becomes a more vibrant variation of the neutral.

It pays to think about decorating your brown sofa with blue cushions (or vice versa), or wooden cabinets with doors or blue objects.

Shades of blue with red

The second primary color blend. In this combination, the color corresponding to the heat (red), meets the color corresponding to the cold (blue). It is an interesting combination to promote a balance of strength and harmony, in addition to making the environment more cozy.

Shades of blue with pink

For mostly blue environments or with a combination of blue and white, pink ensures more prominence and a little more relaxation for the environment. Investing in a lighter, classic shade of pink is a great way to get closer to a romantic mood.

Shades of blue with white and off-white

The combination of blue and white is a guarantee of a light environment, which conveys tranquility and calmness.
