What’s Hip in Kitchen Design

Color Meanings

Blue is a color we all need in our life.  Paint your bedroom or office blue… read why.

Blue is serene and tranquil, the color of peace and contentment. Thanks to its calming effects, blue is the color choice for many hospital nurseries, and studies show that when sitting in a blue room, most people report feeling quiet and settled. If blue is your favorite color, you love harmony, are capable, reliable and sensitive and always make an effort to think of others. Blue is often the chosen color by one that is generally more conservative in nature. (Reprinted from Michael’s handout.)

Deep navy walls, white furniture and white detailing…Clean, Fresh and Relaxing
