In 2018, tranquil shades of blue will grace the most elegant homes and tables. It’s the new ‘it’ color for home decor: replacing beige and tans this year in paint, and home accessories. Look around, and you’ll begin to see furniture, flooring, and tile in every shade of blue imaginable from aquatic turquoise to more serious cadet blue. A solid navy table linen has now become the perfect foundation for an elegant table setting. Printed linens in shades of blue, silver, and black have become a trendy accent for any event.
The Psychology of Blue
Blue elicits feelings of peaceful tranquility. It’s the shade of the ocean and the sky. When we see blue: our brains automatically associate it with calm seas and a beautiful cloudless sky. Darker shades of blue in chic satin may evoke a romantic starry night.
For a Corporate Event
Your client may want to use images from your event in ads for print media and online: A deep or navy blue will be the ideal backdrop to let your client’s product become the focus. Dark blue gives clients the impression of power and security. Darker shades of blue symbolize knowledge, integrity, seriousness, and expertise.
For Your Family Event
Blue is a refreshing neutral for 2018. Consider a softer shade of blue for your wedding or other family event theme. A pale stone blue table looks sophisticated and very up to date. Primary shades of blue coordinate with a variety of other colors and add interest.
Use of Blue in Printed Linens
Blue is a color that automatically draws in the eye, and works beautifully as a pop of color in a gray and white print. A Geometric or exotic mandala print on a clean white background will add a touch of modern luxe. Mixing prints on table linens is possible, but keep your client’s taste and reputation in mind. If you want to add some whimsical in your event theme: try alternating geometric printed napkins in coordinating colors on each table. Finish event lounging areas off with pillows in a coordinating blue printed fabric for a distinctive touch to your event’s design.
