Blue is a beautiful and pure color which we often use in interior décor. We usually associate it with the color of the sea and of the sky but there’s more to it than that. There are many different shades of blue. Navy blue is the darkest shade of pure blue and the shade extracted of natural indigo was the color of the first blue jeans. Ultramarine was the most expensive blue during the Renaissance and in 1802 the synthetic pigment cobalt blue was invented.
In art and decoration, blue was a latecomer as red, black, brown and ochre was used long before that. In Egypt, this color was associated with the sky and with the divinity. Today, we merely use blue to create themed decors and to symbolize the deep sea or the sky. There are many beautiful shades of blue found in nature.
Lots of flowers have blue pigments and they are often used in interior décor. They are included in decors in order to create sea-inspired designs. Mediterranean interior design uses lots of blues and this color can thus also be considered a symbol of this style.
Flowers are also extensively used in interior design so by using blue flowers you can combine two classical features. You can use these delicate plants to give a space a more elegant and chic look while also following a theme. Blue flowers are wonderful in beach homes where they beautifully capture the magic color of the sea/ocean and of the clear sky.
