Everyone goes through rocky times; whether it is moving to a new home, dealing with stress at your job, or simply handling the daily challenges life throws at you, adding some blue in your home will evoke a sense of sanctuary and relaxation amid your hectic and always-on lives.

Lighter hues like blue and green represent youth, new beginnings, and inspire confidence. Instilling some form of it on your wall or furniture will not only create a cool and clear look, but also establish an atmosphere of work and meditation.

Product Highlight: The Kendrick Sectional

It is very rare to find a living room set in true blue that looks dynamic. Usually colors like off-white or grey are used as primary colors while blue as more of a secondary to enhance the look. The Kendrick Sectional, however, is a solid chenille blue sectional in a league of its own! Also available in chocolate, the sectional comes with a pull out sleeper with 4′ memory foam for ultra comfort when you have guests over.

What Looks Good in Blue?

Whether it is living room, family room, or bedroom – the color blue brings the outdoors in with its nature-inspired, soul-soothing hue. Blue is said to bring down blood pressure and slow down respiration and heart rate. Thus having blue accent pieces in your “rooms of relaxation” will add an aura of peace and tranquility, while instantly making any room more vibrant.

Which Colors Complement Blue?

Blue represents the tranquil sea, so earthy colors from the other elements like brown, grey, green, and black complement it well!
