When my kids were younger and “learning their colours” they used to ask all our friends and family to tell them their favourite hues. They loved to recount everybody’s favourite colour and would also say that mine was purple (as I had previously answered).
I actually got asked that very question again recently and answered purple once more but out of habit rather than a genuine fondness for that colour. The truth is, I find myself “drawn” to different colours all of the time and admittedly I do love lots of different colours. Currently, the colours that I most seem to be attracted to are on the blue spectrum, pale blue, mints and turquoise.
I have lots of “pops” of these favourite colours in my living and working space. I add this colour mainly through my vintage finds, such as my old sewing machines and typewriter; and also through consumables such as my new diary and notebooks.
After witnessing me falling in love with this Crosley Turntable recently, the kids saved up for it to buy me for Mother’s Day (I still can’t get over this and feel so grateful to them). I just adore the colour.
For me, shades of blue remind me of blue skies and stop me “feeling blue”. According to the following “Colour Psychology Explored” infographic, Blue is also good for lowering blood pressure, has relaxing properties and is good for brain function. It’s important to choose colours in office and public spaces carefully so they fully complement the function of the room.
You can also add colour to work spaces by painting walls and buying colourful furniture. Calibre Furniture sell a wide range of office furniture in a wide range of colours to help you incorporate the right colours for your office spaces into your work place.
