Blue in nature can be cool and calming like a light blue sky or an Australian ocean or it can be cold and depressing like Antarctic ice with a foggy blue-grey sky.
Blue helps men communicate with each other and with women. Men find it easier and less stressful talking to or listening to a woman dressed in light blue. Fuchsia which is a combination of blue and pink attracts men as the message it subconsciously sends is of a woman who is confident and easy to talk to.
Those with cool colouring in their hair, eyes and skin will generally have a preference for soft, pale or deep blue. Those with warm colouring will tend towards aqua, blue-green or blue-purple.
Finally, colour experts say that eating blue-purple foods like berries calms you and helps you sleep well.
