This color is actually really popular right now. It gives off a sense of optimism, and it also adds light and conveys positive feelings in a room. This makes it very useful, whether as a wall color or on furniture. Keep reading to learn more about what this color has to offer.

One of the more obvious things that’s nice about this color is how unusual it is to see it in home decor. We aren’t used to seeing it all over the house. That being said, wherever you put it, it will look a bit surprising, but very pleasing to the eye. 

This tone of blue conveys hope, peace, calm, and can generate pleasant feelings. The softness and serenity it creates in a room are something most other colors can’t give. Plus, using it in your furniture or on your walls makes for a simple, original touch.

As the name says, it will remind you of the sky, of the feeling of being out in the world, in nature. In other words, the sensations it creates within you are a great way to bring yourself to a calm, hopeful place.

Sky blue opens your mind and makes you feel enthusiastic and happy.

You might not like the idea of having a blue kitchen. The trend has always been to use neutral colors, and if not that, then at least warm colors. But there’s something about this version of blue that goes perfectly in this space and brings very interesting sensations with it.

  • You’ll basically just want to use it in the furniture. The cupboards and drawers are where you can use it most. It can be hard to find home stores with furniture in this color, but that’s starting to change.
  • If you really want to break away from tradition and catch people’s eyes, you can even use this color for your fridge. The idea is that it will create a contrast with the rest of the furniture. That will make your refrigerator stand out, and look completely original.
  • Another option is to use this color on the walls, and on stools if you have them. The goal is to envelop the space in a blue atmosphere that gives off feelings of hygiene and freshness.

Naturally, bathrooms are a perfect place for sky blue. It’s the absolute best color for this room in the house because we associate it with freshness and cleansing powers of water.

  • You can use it on either the tile floor or on the walls. That way, the feeling of cleanliness will hit you right from the start and will be the first thing people feel when they walk into the bathroom.
  • If you do decide to paint the walls sky blue, you should remember how well it goes with the white of the tub and toilet. They’re colors that go together perfectly and make a great team. 
  • Think about it: pools use this color all the time. So why shouldn’t you try it out in your bathroom space?
