MOOD OF THE MONTH - QUIETUDE
April is here and so is the new color of the month. We chose pantone quietude 12-4207 TSX, a charming hue of light, pale blue that we absolutely adore.
Blue is a color often found in nature such as the pale blue of a daytime sky or the rich dark blue of a deep pool of water. It is for this reason perhaps that people often describe the color blue as calm and serene.
Although it is a cool color, it doesn’t give you the chills. You will feel very welcomed and peaceful in a pale blue room and as the name suggest you will get your quiet time away from the busy, stressful world. Sitting in a pale blue room is like forgetting all about the reality and entering an unreal territory. In Tibetan Buddhism, blue is the color of wisdom, creating a copy for the sky’s infinity.
Let’s have a look at the whole blue family. What do we associate it with and how does it make us feel?
Blue is described as a favorite color by many people and is the color most preferred by men.
Because blue is favored by so many people, it is often viewed as a non-threatening color that can seem conservative and traditional.
Blue calls to mind feelings of calmness or serenity. It is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly.
Blue is often seen as a sign of stability and reliability. Businesses that want to project an image of security often utilize blue in their advertising and marketing efforts.
Blue is often used to decorate offices because research has shown that people are more productive in blue rooms.
If you want to create a calm, almost unreal feeling for your house, you should think about painting your walls in this shade. The pale hue of quietude is very discrete and fine giving the impression of a very delicate space.
We decided to use quietude in a fresh color scheme and paire it with neutrals and salmon pink for an elegant, spring inspired interior.
