After a long cold winter, being able to see the sun and the bright blue sky is a welcome change for everyone. For those that can’t get enough of that bright blue, it can be a color that you can enjoy all year just by using it on your windows and doors.
It is a color that matches well with other blues and whites, and it is relatively easy to find. It is also a color that will help your house stand out from all the other muted colored houses in your neighborhood, but not so much that your home becomes the neighborhood joke.
The Feeling Created by Bright Blue
On a nice day, gazing up at that bright blue sky feels almost therapeutic. A feeling of calm washes over you and for some reason everything you were stressed out about before just melts away. This isn’t because you are staring at the sky, but because of the color that the sky is.
The bright blue that you are staring into creates a feeling of calm and peace. If the sky were dark gray, you wouldn’t have the same feeling of peace. The same goes for those mornings when the sky is red instead of blue. On those mornings there is no feeling of peace, but a feeling of being unsettled and eerie.
Bring That Bright Blue Peace Home
Using that bright blue that you see in the sky as a color on your home will help to make your home a welcoming and stress-free environment. And because the color will be on your windows and doors, it will help create a feeling of calm before someone even enters your home.
Keep it to the Windows and Doors
Bright blue is never something that you should use for the entire house. It should be used on either the house as the main color, or on the windows and doors as a trim color.
While having some bright blue creates calmness and peace, too much will have people thinking that you are too conservative and rigid. It also brings up feelings that you may not be trustworthy, so others can’t relax around you.
For the perfect blend, use bright blue on your windows and doors with white on your siding.
