COLOR COMBO: BLUE

Hi dears, how is the day going, so I know I have not done this segment for a long time now, actually been lazy-busy, but my sister who will soon be getting married, requested for it; on how to combine blue with other colours,so she could choose ......and I was forced to do it. Anyway, like I said Today's colour is BLUE.

From a colour psychology perspective, the colour blue is the colour of trust and
responsibility;its sincere, reserved and quiet,and doesn't like to make a fuss or draw attention;reliable and responsible, thereby exhibiting an inner security and confidence you can rely on to take control and do the right thing in difficult times but needs order and direction in its life, including its living and work spaces.
The paler the blue the more freedom we feel. In the meaning of colours, blue relates to one-to-one communication, speaking the truth through verbal self-expression - it is the teacher, the public speaker. *Blue's wisdom comes from its higher level of intelligence, a spiritual perspective;the colour of the spirit, devotion and religious study which enhances contemplation and prayer; but blue's devotion can be to any cause or concept it believes in, even devotion to family or work.
*Blue is helper, rescuer, the friend in need,a giver, not a taker. It likes to build strong trusting relationships and becomes deeply hurt if that trust is betrayed. Nevertheless, its persistent and determined to succeed in whichever endeavours it pursues.
*Change is difficult for blue;becomes inflexible and when faced with a new or different idea, considers the idea, analyses it, thinks it over slowly and then tries to make it fit its own acceptable version of reality.
*Blue is nostalgic(lives in the past, relating everything in the present and the future to experiences in the past).


Traits of Blue
*Positive Traits are loyalty, trust and integrity, tactful, reliability and responsibility, conservatism and perseverance, caring and concern, idealistic and orderly, authority, devotion and contemplation, peaceful and calm.
*Negative traits are being rigid(Blue likes familiarity and doesn't like change; will stubbornly do things its own way,even if there is a better way) deceitful and spiteful, self-righteous, superstitious and emotionally unstable, too conservative(universally liked), predictable (needs to be analysed, think and create a plan) and weak, unforgiving, and frigid. It can also indicate manipulation, unfaithfulness and untrustworthiness.


Blue Represents
*Communication: Blue relates to one-to-one verbal communication and self expression.
*Peace and calm: The colour blue induces calm and peace within us, particularly the deeper shades.
*Honesty: Blue is the colour of truth.
*Authority: The darker the colour blue, the more authority it has.
*Religion: Blue is the colour of devotion and religious study.
*Wisdom: Blue enhances the wisdom of the intellect.


Shades of the Colour Blue
*Pale BluePale blue inspires creativity and the freedom to break free.
*Sky BlueOne of the calmest colours, sky blue inspires selfless love and fidelity. It is non-threatening and promotes a helpful nature that can overcome all obstacles; and is the universal healer.
*Azure BlueA colour of true contentment, azure inspires determination and ambition to achieve great things, a sense of purpose in striving for goals.
*Dark BlueDark blue is the colour of conservatism and responsibility. Although it appears to be cool, calm and collected, it is the colour of the non-
emotional worrier with repressed feelings, the pessimist and the hypocrite; can be compassionate but has trouble showing it as its emotions run deep;and is a serious masculine colour representing knowledge, power, and integrity, which is used quite often in the corporate world.
