The Impact Of Blue Paint Colors
Did you know, in this digital age we live in that blue is the most clickable color? That’s according to a study conducted by Colorcom and Travel + Leisure. Why? Perhaps it’s because the color blue, “elicits a high number of positive emotional responses,” stated McLean. “Including the feelings of relaxation and calmness, happiness, comfort, peace and hope.” All of which go to why choosing a brilliant blue paint color can be the right move for a variety of spaces. Pool Party is versatile, working with vibrant palettes, and also in spaces with a more neutral palette. Either way, the blue tones of Pool Party are sure to put a smile on your face.
Designing With Watery Blues
- For a summer celebration you’ll want to bring your sunglasses to, pair Pool Party with equally bright colors like Wasabi (DE5578), and Flamingo Feather (DE5037). Just add music!
- An effective way to balance out the above dose of the color is to use a mixture of natural wood tones when it comes to things like furniture, bookshelves and other decor accents.
- Use Pool Party as an accent color alongside Riviera (DE5753) and Water Baby (DE5780) for a palette inspired by the watery tones of the Mediterranean.
- Designing a modern yet youthful space? Pair Pool Party with Mojito (DE5603), Stately Stems (DE5712), December Sky (DE6352), and light, natural wood accents.
