Feeling the the blues . . .

Posted on November 28 2012, Bathroom Planning

Blue is the colour of the sea and sky bringing calm and tranquility to a room, and is always a popular choice in interiors and often used in a bathroom. Depending on the light in a room certain shades of blue can give a cold look but with the correct lighting blue brings a soft, soothing and clean feel to a room, which is desirable in a bathroom.  Adding an electric or cobalt blue give a dramatic effect that fills you with energy.
