What’s the most calming color?

When is the last time someone asked you, “what’s your favorite color?” 4th grade? Did you answer blue? We bet you did. Because blue is consistently the most popular color. With both men and women. Though they don’t know why.

Studies show that combinations of blues, grays, and white help create a feeling of calm and serenity. Without realizing it, great design is meant to evoke certain emotions. And when it comes to color palettes, blue is the warmest color.

It’s been said that you should wear blue to an interview, and you’ll come off as trustworthy and responsible. That if you wear blue
pajamas, you’ll sleep better. Blue isn’t just a color. It’s a feeling. It’s a feeling that can be as powerful as that love song you play on loop.

All we want to do after a long day is find a way to relax. Some say it helps to take a hot bath to unwind. Why not go a step further and surround that bath with shades of blue, gray and white?

Here are a few examples of how blue can be incorporated into calming bathroom design through paint color, tile patterns and flooring design.
