1. Make Classic Blue the focal point of the room

Blue is a deep, natural tone that fosters meditation, inspiring creativity and effective communication. Try making Classic Blue the focal point of a social space in your home. A blue living room wall draws visitors' attention with its soothing appeal, making even the shyest guests feel comfortable. Classic Blue is also the perfect choice for a bedroom since this deep tone is reminiscent of a darkened sky. Consider painting your child's room in this stylish shade to help soothe anxieties in the evenings and rejuvenate the senses in the mornings.
