As favorite colors go, nothing beats the blues.

This familiar family of hues, whose popularity spans generations, has been embraced, historically, around the globe. In some early cultures, blue pigment (used in paint) was a precious resource, more valuable even than gold.

Here at home, blue is associated with nature – it nods to sky and sea. In color psychology terms, blue refreshes, soothes and re-energizes. It also mixes well with virtually every hue in the design crayon box, so it's little wonder that this color is a favorite of many Americans.

"The resurgence of blue speaks of the return to simplicity and classic design that we're experiencing," says Mathew.

"Today's blues are flexible and offer a way to work the color into existing interiors based on the mood you wish to create."

According to Mathew, on-trend uses range from painting a ceiling soft blue to turning a small space like a powder room into an instant jewel box by wrapping it in Midnight Navy, then mixing in sparkly crystal lighting, a statement mirror and towels in bold colors.

Small ways to add impact include layering pillows in varying hues or painting dining chairs in different tones.

Designers have been longtime fans, even more so with the latest takes on blue. "I don't know anyone who doesn't like blue," says Margaret B. Chambers of Chambers Interiors & Associates in Dallas.

"It's a color that makes sense right now because it's relaxing and comforting – feelings people are searching for in these tense economic times. The lighter shades of blue are particularly popular as well as the classic combination of blue and white."

Blue also is big on the national design scene.

"I love singing the blues, when it comes to color, that is," says Jamie Drake, a New York designer known for vivid use of color in interiors.

"This season's vast range of shades and tones feel spot-on. What's so special about spring 2010's crop of blues is their complexity. Powder blue has a touch of red in it, pushing it toward the lavender. A hint of yellow in classic navy makes it practically peacock proud."

The result? A rhapsody in blue that makes spring sing.
