Here’s another bluesy blue song I listened to on repeat in my angsty teen years…
My Own History With Blue
Our very first Chicagoland bungalow came with a teeny kitchen we gutted and renovated ourselves. The color story was navy (like the kitchen above) and white, and the style was traditional. When we bought a vacation home in Arizona in 2016, I couldn’t wait to make over the red kitchen we inherited. It bloomed into a serene, blue-grey, Nordic French style one. I hand-painted the cabinets blue-grey, and the kitchen turned out to be my favorite part of the transformation since the mood instantly quieted. Pale blue remains my favorite color after white.

What Mood Does Blue Create?
According to color psychology, blue suggests peace. It’s the color of sea and clear sky, both of which are linked to inner serenity, calm and clarity.
Blue slows heart rate and breathing, so it can be a good color to aid in meditation or relaxation. Additionally, blue is associated with intelligence, and its different shades can: improve concentration, stimulate thinking and provide mental clarity.
The color also improves productivity and is a wise choice for study and work as it offers relaxation and stimulation at the same time.”
How is blue different from red? “Blue is a color that is linked with confidence. Unlike red, which shows aggressive dominance, blue is related to a calm authority. Blue inspires trust, it is non-threatening and shows persistence.”
Where Does Blue Fall on the Emotion Scale?
Ever considered the relationship of the color blue and emotion?
“Another characteristic of blue is that it is not a very emotional color. It can be described as aloof or snobbish. Just as it is associated with intelligence, it can be associated with being cold and rational to a point of showing little emotion.”
Color psychology research also suggests blue is an unappetizing color (which is curious since so many folks love blue in the kitchen)! Is blue kitchen decor for people who are watching their portions or attractive to folks who don’t do a lot of cooking? Food for thought.
