How to decorate with light blue at home?
Blue represents both the sky and the sea and is the favourite colour of all people.
Maya blue, as for all the light but at the same time bright blues, can add an interesting splash of colour to interior and outdoor spaces. As a paint colour it can make a bold impact, but if you don’t fancy it as bright – use a tone for a more “dusty blue” or go for a shade darker for a “moodier blue.” For a lighter wash of colour – a tint can provide a soft airy blue. Lighter shades of the colour instil a feeling of calm and tranquility at home which makes a good choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces where you want to relax.
