Classic Blue feature a reflective tone and it is considered a safe colour for many people. Even though not associated with a traditional Christmas colour palette, Blue can be a timeless and enduring hue, bringing a sense of peace and tranquillity to any display.
Blue can vary in so many shaded and textures and can be incorporated with other colours to create a theme or point of difference. Placing blue into your Christmas display examples include:
- The shades of blue can vary from a deep royal tone to a ‘Tiffany’ or ‘Duck Egg’ colour- these colour selections can often be interpreted as an expensive or exclusive branding but a light and/ or sky blues can soften any display and relate back to nature.
- Blue can accompany many other colours as part of any display. Greens and sandy tones can in some eyes, relate to an oceanic environment. Gold and silvers can seem timeless and exquisite when partnered with blue. The two remaining primary colours – red and yellow- often are included within a blue palette as they can be associated to be more bright, fun and safer approach.
- Depending on which blue is chosen and if other colours are introduced with any Christmas display, the choice of light colour will either compromise or enhance the blue tones. In most cases while LED light is the obvious choice when colours like greens, silvers and reds are introduced but yellows, purples and oranges work with the warm white light ones. All lights that accompany a blue dominating display can easily vary but this will depend on the actual choice of colour shades- this is when the rule of light colour can be determined eg white lights with blue and silver.
- Green foliage and blue- In most cases a secondary colour would be introduced with any Christmas wreath, tree or garland. The green of some foliage’s can actually work against the blue unless other key colour and even textures are included. If blue is your preferred choice for this year’s Christmas them, ensure there is more blue trim than other colours or choose a blue that is timeless and speaks to your brand and customers.
