We've all heard the age old question - Why is the sky blue? A clear and cloudless day-time sky is bright blue thanks to molecules in the air that scatter blue light from the sun. Unlike a sunset, where the blue light has been scattered out of the line of sight, a daytime sky holds its striking blue color.
One of the calmest colors in the spectrum, sky blue is said to reduce stress, creating a sense of relaxation, order, and tranquility. One certainly feels a sense of calm when they lie on their backs, looking into an bright and blue endless sky. A true blue sky can lighten up even the darkest of days.
In your household, the use of the color blue is said to create these same feelings, evoking a sense of brightness and light which can make a home feel larger. Sky blue will lend vibrance to any area of the home you decorate it with, lending just the right amount of color without overwhelming the senses.
Sky blue is a unique and refreshing choice for your kitchen decor, and looks vibrant and sophisticated on a number of various surfaces and accessories. Try the shade on your cabinets, walls, accessories, or even your kitchen appliances to add a pop of color to your culinary haven.
