Why paint a room in Blue? Why not, after all blue is the worlds most popular colour! It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith and truth. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Today we are featuring 12 rooms showcasing how beautiful blue can be, all painted in Benjamin Moore colours. We threw in a few fun front door colours in blue too.
