It's Okay to be BLUE

I recently went blue (Sherwin Williams 0019 Festoon Aqua to be exact) in my office because I found some carpet tiles (see above picture) that I fell in love with and I love color so I threw caution to the wind and went blue.

Blue shouldn't always mean the color of sorrow. On contrare, it's a very soothing color and it has actually been shown to increase your self-confidence and happiness.

(Please excuse the mess & my dog's bed)

Researchers in the UK exposed both sexes to different colors of light, measuring their brain activity, heart rate and sweat levels while asking them how the colors made them feel. Blue was the only color that helped everyone feel calm.

So instead of avoiding the blues embrace them and consider them for your own spaces, like I did for my office...See my FIRST video ever here....

And I am sure you are dying to know if I feel self confident, happy and calm now that I work in a blue space...The answer is sometimes. ;) I wonder on certain days what I would be like if I wasn't working in a blue space...Can you relate?
