A Color Story: Blue

Why do we love the color blue? It reminds us of the beautiful summer season, tropical waters, robin eggs, country skies, blueberry pie and even the cookie-obsessed character on Sesame Street. It also reminds us of how important it is to incorporate positive feelings into your designs. In this blog post, we’re identifying five different blue tile looks to transform help your home.

“Blue is known for its trust and dependability. It’s reliable, responsible, and mentally soothing. For that reason alone, it’s one of the most-liked colors across the entire world.”—CoSchedule


Pattern Play

The color blue is said to encourage efficiency and confidence. Patterns are a great way to express your personality. Put the two concepts together, and you have the ultimate courageous look!
