The best impressions start with the right curb appeal, and the Mini Mountain Blue doesn’t disappoint in that area either. Despite its sturdy small facade, the blue exterior makes a bold yet welcoming statement on the road.
The outer turquoise color perfectly complements the greenery; however, it also gives us a hint of the color ideas we can expect to see outside its wooden front door. We love how the color pops out against its background – so naturally, we color-coordinated it with the exterior paint underneath.
If you think this turquoise blue looks familiar, you’re probably right. Paint Company Backdrop has teamed up with Barbie to bring the identical colors of the iconic Barbie Dreamhouse pool to life. We also think it fits perfectly with the Mini Mountain Blue’s exterior.
Inside, the dominant blue palette really comes into play. As heralded by its vibrant look, walls in (brighter) shades of color are favored – creating a therapeutic space admired by those in the color industry.
“Blue – and all its different shades – is widely loved in interior design,” says Myland owner Dominic Myland. He says the color, in all its tones, has lasting appeal and is very versatile. ‘Light blues can be very soothing while darker blues can be stimulating; unsaturated blues are a great choice for creating a quieter backdrop to other colors in the space, and lighter tones can also be the star of the show.’
Pale pastel blues, like those seen on these walls, are popular choices for living spaces. According to Dominic, these colors create “a light, bright atmosphere” and offer a calming, peaceful aesthetic that is welcome in any size home. And, as experts say, blue of all shades has the power to make a small bedroom or living room feel larger.
