Colors in the blue range are usually calming and soothing; they can be light and pale in tint and go deeper into a beautiful teal. AQUA is a bit different in that it can be soothing as well as vibrant! It reminds us of the ocean and the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Even kids get an early introduction to this beautiful color! Look at the various shades of aqua that CRAYOLA makes!

The psychological effects of aqua..
Closer to green than blue, aqua is refreshing and uplifting. It is creative and light-hearted, yet strong and individual.
The color aquamarine calms and balances the mind and the emotions, enhancing creativity and inspiration.

Mercer: "I have used a pale aqua in a client's home on the walls with a lovely creamy beige trim to open up a small room that was on the dark side of the house. The cool soothing color completely changed the feeling of the room from one of a cramped small bedroom into a spacious home office. Try some aqua in your home to freshen up your room!"
