The regal and brilliant painted blue exterior door. Striking and confident. Blue is certainly a distinctive hue to coat the door to our interior worlds…

Of note, the modern English word “Blue” is derived from the Middle English word “Bleu” or “Blewe” and from the Old French word “Bleu”, a “word of Germanic origin related to the Old High German word “Blao”. Although the word “Azure” is used for blue, in many languages there is no single word for blue, but rather different words for various hues of blue, such as light or dark blue. Of note, the ancient Greeks, who are said to have imported the blue indigo dye from India, classified colors by their intensity of light and dark rather than by their hue. Who knew? Of additional interest, in Ancient Egypt, the color blue was associated with the sky and divinity. Even the Ancient Romans coated the walls in Pompeii with frescoes of brilliant blue skies. A color coated in history, for certain…

And of the painted hues of blue coating the door to our personalized spaces? Worthy of an acknowledgement and visual appreciation…
