Chroma Color: True Blue

Date: 08/13

Refreshing, invigorating, relaxing...these are just a few ways to describe the color blue.

More than just a crayon color, these days blue is everything from pale, pastel tones to dark, inky shades. Taking a backseat these past few years, blue is becoming quite hot in all aspects of design. A true color, no matter how light or dark, French Fauvist painter Raoul Dufy got it right when he correctly stated that "it will always stay blue" "in all its tones".

From the ocean to the sky, the earth is brimming with blues. The turquoise waters of the Caribbean that inspire countless minds everyday to the contrasting azure blueness of the never ending sky above that is cause for limitless dreaming. Mother Nature surprises us still with her bounty of blue. Animals, flowers and fruit all in various shades still not named. And though blue is abundant, it is not all found in the Great Outdoors.

Design trends in fashion and home have a lot to say about blue. It can be regal and luxurious as well as soft and comforting. Easy to accessorize, it is found in nursery's to bathrooms. No matter the trend, blue has been a favorite throughout time and remains so today.
