Blue January: How to Incorporate The Shade into Your Bedroom to Improve Wellbeing

People have long regarded that certain colours can elicit different emotions and moods; some research has even supported the notion that colours have the power to cause psychological effects. Blue is a colour found in nature, like the dark blue of the ocean, the pale blue of daytime sky or the deep blue of a twilight sky. Due to blues’ relation to nature, people often describe blue as a soothing and tranquil colour. The colour blue has also been shown to evoke a bodily effect, by lowering both pulse rate and body temperature. American colour company Pantone announced that Pantone 19-4052 or “Classic Blue” as its colour of the year for 2020. Pantone describes Classic Blue as “a reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection”. The cobalt tone is also said to help with centring thoughts, which is perfect for today’s face paced and technology centred world. Changing up your bedroom to incorporate the colour blue may just improve your overall wellbeing, so it seems only a smart decision to work the colour in somehow. Here are just some ways in which you could integrate blue into your bedroom. 

The easiest and most effective way to add some blue into your bedroom is with some new cushions and bedding. Bedding can be an amazing way to spruce up a room without breaking the bank, as well as being an interesting way to introduce some new textures. Sustainability within home interiors is going to be a massive interior trend for 2020 and there are a lot of great companies that create ethically sourced, 100% organic and Fairtrade bedding. We recommend some light blue organic jersey bedding. The light blue colour will keep your bedroom looking fresh and clean as well as making you feel a sense of calm and clarity.
