Blue Monday....

18 January 2016
RLP State

The third Monday of January is said to be the most depressing day of the year, thanks to a combination of bad weather, increased debt and poor diet in the aftermath of the festive season.

This seems like a bad rap for such a nice hue since it's far from depressing. When the winter blahs set in you can add pop of colours around your house to help get you thru this day!

Take your home to a bold new level by trying out one of these unexpected, but surprisingly perfect, color palettes. Did you know that you could mix red, white and blue with black-and-white stripes?

Neons are all the rage and, surprisingly, they go well with just about any color. Try a palette of copper, brown and burnt orange complimented with a burst of fuchsia and a contrasting shade of navy blue on the walls.

Or simply add bright pillows on your couch and bed. why not try a bowl of lemons or green apples on your kitchen counter!

The color blue is the color of trust and responsibility

This color is one of trust, honesty and loyalty. It is sincere, reserved and quiet, and doesn't like to make a fuss or draw attention. It hates confrontation, and likes to do things in its own way.

From a color psychology perspective, blue is reliable and responsible.

This color exhibits an inner security and confidence.

You can rely on it to take control and do the right thing in difficult times.

It has a need for order and direction in its life, including its living and work spaces.

This is a color that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation.

It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order - we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky. It slows the metabolism. The paler the blue the more freedom we feel.
