Well it’s official. According to an article published by Netscape Home & Living, global market research has revealed that blue is the most popular color in the world. To many this revelation should come as no surprise since blue in all its hues is literally all around us. Whether it is the brightest blue of the northern skies, the icy blue polar caps, turquoise blue of the ocean deep or the blue mountains of Australia, blue finds favor with people far and wide.
Whole societies have heralded the color blue in home decor. For example, the Dutch have a centuries old tradition of creating blue and white pottery designs in the city of Delft in Zuid Holland(South) Holland. From these early creations an international brand called Delftware was born. The key signatures of Delftware are the decorative motifs and pictorial scenes featuring Dutch windmills, scenic landscapes and fishing boats.
Blue in the bedroom can even promote sleep while playful blue colors like aqua in a family room can evoke feelings of harmony.
