Calm. Peaceful. Trustworthy. Reliable. Soothing. All of these words describe today’s featured color, blue, and some of the most original furniture pieces and decorative objects, all blue, that we gathered after our last visit at the showroom of Bello Horizonte in Jávea.
“Blue is the only color which maintains its own character in all its tones… it will always stay blue; whereas yellow is blackened in its shades, and fades away when lightened; red when darkened becomes brown, and diluted with white is no longer red, but another color – pink.” That’s what French Fauvist painter Raoul Dufy (1877-1953) says. And maybe that’s also why blue is such an overwhelmingly popular colour and extensively used in interior design.
Seen as a symbol of trustworthiness, accuracy, serenity and commitment, blue is also the main colour of the world surrounding us – from the bright nuances of the sky to the deep tones of the seas and oceans. And although most of the shades of blue invoke calmness and piece of mind there are also some, such as electric and brilliant blues, that are dynamic and express exhilaration and can be used as chromatic accent.
There are so many amazing shades to choose from, from deep to ice blue or from peacock to turquoise, and so many ways of mixing them. At Bello Horizonte we are especially fond of their selection of exclusive colonial furniture and decorative wall panels finished in washed away tones of turquoise.
Their colonial furniture collection also includes wardrobes, cupboards, consoles and cabinets and the one above for instance, featuring all the shades ranging from ice blue to peacock, is a great choice of original design and functionality.
If you like the azure shades then you will definitely find a lot of them in the showroom, on dining sets, glasses sets, Asian decorative sculptures, candles or lamp shades that will beautifully complete your decoration choices.
Shades of bright blue can also do wonders as a chromatic accent, especially when surrounded by a sea of white, as shown in this bedroom setting from the showroom of Bello Horizonte.
There are also plenty of terrace and garden decorations and accessories available at Bello Horizonte: their collection of pillows, sofa throws and blankets in tonic shades that recall the beach vibe, as well as their wicker and ceramic bowls, plant pots, candle holders, mugs and nice table decorations, will surely impress you with their originality and also show… just how many shades of blue you can have!
