Incorporating classic blue, the color of the year, in designing one’s home while employing the basics of interior decorating can help improve the quality of life. It helps one relax and de-stress after a long day.
Color experts say this enduring blue hue instills calmness and confidence.
Peaches De Guzman-Grey, KDG Interior’s principal interior designer said classic blue symbolizes many things and gives an impression of stability and honesty which can be associated with many objects.
Grey has these pieces of advice on decorating homes this 2020 with classic blue:
1. Go back to basics.
Before deciding on what decorations you would want to put, it is important to evaluate certain considerations such as your preferences and lifestyle. Knowing these factors will make your home decorations work better for you and your family.
An example is, if your family has small kids, consider that your space should be child-friendly. It would be better if there are no sharp edges, the space is always safe, and there are rooms where they can play freely.
2. Design according to functionality.
It is also essential to design spaces according to the use of your area and rooms. Certain portions of the house which are used for specific tasks require details appropriate for it. That’s why if you are going to decide the specifics such as lighting and furniture, always consider the room’s function and if it will help you perform your tasks easily.
3. Incorporate classic blue
in places where you want to be relaxed. De Guzman, however, also emphasized that you need to be careful in putting it in places like the kitchen or dining room as blue is known to be an appetite suppressant.
4. Use neutral colors and just inject the classic blue as an accent.
If you will go for neutral, you can instead use classic blue for throw pillows, carpet, accent chairs, and other accessories for emphasis.
5. Understand that designing is a process.
If you have a preferred design, think about how the designs will work for you and do not just follow trends. Consider practicality, because this will save you a lot of money in the long term.
6. Be flexible.
No matter how up-to-the-minute the classic blue is, especially for the upcoming year, don’t forget that it is just a trend which means it changes easily and dies down quickly.
