Psychologically speaking, blue
is a color often associated with intuition,
depth, stability, and trust.
Inside scoop to convincingly sound like a
blue blooded elitist at the next interior design fete:
the Ch in Inchyra is pronounced
like China, not Chicago.
Ready for the before?
Created for Lord and Lady Inchyra at
Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland,
Inchyra blue is used (see below)
on the exterior doors of
their very impressive byre (barn)
which was restored in 2013.
(I’m gonna try ‘byre’ on my kids
when they forget their manners…
Were you born in a byre????)
Now let’s jet from moody Scottish skies to
the organic purity of Justine’s atmospheric pantry.
Farrow and Ball call the color the perfect alternative
to charcoal for use on walls in contemporary homes,
and I think they could be on to something.
In west facing rooms Inchyra Blue appears
stronger and less colored in the morning,
gradually intensifying as the day unfolds.
Anyone else repeating the name of this deep color
and loving the sound so much they suspect
they have deep blue problems?
Peace to you right where you are.
