What does blue mean?
When looking to looking to bring freshness back into a kitchen or bathroom, a set of blue Moroccan tile can really help you achieve everything from a youthful, contemporary vibe across to a sophisticated, elegant look – depending on the tone you go for.
Blue really is one of those colours that is versatile and timeless. Opting for a baby blue can really bring that innocent, bubbly energy back into the room – whilst a more regal blue will help you achieve a uniform, reserved but luxurious feel.
Underneath both sides of the scale you will get a sense of controlled calmness, tranquility, with blue really helping to steady the pace and tone in a room. Other than vibrant neon (which is still mesmerising), blue really does capture a comforting softness regardless of the shade. A blue space really helps to positively shift the mood and facilitates a relaxing experience.
That natural, endless freedom is what we all associate to the sky, the sea and more, so that feeling of freshness and joy is what we associate to the colour itself. That and the overarching beauty that blue really compliments many other colours.
How can you use blue Moroccan tiles?
Whilst there are tiles (like red Moroccan tile) that are very vibrant, matter of fact and clearly acknowledge that they are a statement piece, the beauty of blue Moroccan tiles however, is that it has a reserved honesty, authenticity and naturally elevated status.
To avoid getting too airy fairy with the topic, blue Moroccan tile really is noticed without asking to be noticed. It is very sensual, flowy and really sits in the back. Now if you are reserved, or want a royal / regal feel without being too brash blue will really compliment your style.
Having hints of light blue Moroccan tile patterns dotted around give that bordered effect and ultimately this playful but structured look – something ideal for a kitchen or bathroom.
You can also have it as part of a set of complimentary colours, a few regularly used ones are white and yellow. Complimentary colours work both discreetly and repetitively. If you do try to cover a room with it, it will require some thinking and planning, and thats again where patterns really make it palatable to the eye.
A wall or even a row of blue in the living room or kitchen is a timeless favourite, and it is usually dark blue Moroccan tile which is used to achieve this effect. It is an unashamed stream of blue wrapped around a kitchen top, or as blue Moroccan tile splashbacks for example to create a direct contrast, capture natural rawness and beauty.
It is not something you would want on a hallway floor for example as it could bring a lot of darkness and you want the room to still feel broad – that is where complimentary colours play a huge role.
But be sure to keep it on one or two walls in a room, overuse of darker shades in general will have an impact on the room vibes.
Although Moroccan blue tile works perfectly with minimalist decor (especially subtle, lighter tones) helping to capture a simple, sleek, soft and perfectionist look. It really does feel at home when covered in tradition, this includes traditional cupboards, drawers and tables.
