Positivity Weekly Color Challenge: Blue | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

I wanted to write this post at the very beginning of the year 2020 for the power this number represents marking an important year. Events after events started to happen, the vicious coronavirus appeared on the horizon, my work trip to Europe came, and while I was there almost got stuck under a three months lockdown. The frontiers closed down the same day I was on the plane returning back to the States, barely made it.  Now, we are almost halfway done to complete the first six months of this, should I say “exciting” year? 😡 Given all we went through, it is still a good time to talk about the color of 2020. Pantone, the Color Institute declared “classic blue” the color of this year for a reason.

Blue Is…

Adding the numbers of 2020, zero is not considered a number, we get 4, which is the number of the truth. Using blue in every expression of life is like we seek truth and knowledge. Exactly, what we want to hear his year. We don’t want to beat around the bushes, we want to hear the truth from people and countries that put the world in this ugly situation. The number 4 in the Eastern civilization represents order, responsibility, manifestation, physical reality, and tested solutions. Being a universal number it also represents peace, home, and family.

The year with a 4 as the total number of all the numbers together, is the year to achieve that one thing a person always wanted to achieve and get it done. It is the year to fully invest in a creative foundation that stands the test of time and reinventing oneself. Most of us by now have experienced some hardship due to new conditions, doing something different is a new necessity.  

It has been said that every person has an aura, lucky are those who can see it. A person with a blue aura tends to speak his/her mind, will always express likes and dislikes, will tell it straight to you if you are right or not, even knowing that can ruffle up people’s feathers. The strong vibrational period we are living this year wants us to step into a total true without censorship.



These above are the colors for a sitting/meditation room I decorated last year for a businesswoman. Being a spiritual woman, treating her life and her spirituality as one, continuously searching for a dialogue with a higher Supreme Being, she is in tune with these colors and recognizes them as good colors for her wellbeing.

Our color energy lies in the seven body centers called Chakras (from the Sanskrit: spinning wheel).  Blue and purple reside on the head area, where thinking and reaching for the Supreme Being happens. Our thoughts start from the blue and purple Chakra and get captured in the universe through strong electromagnetic emanations. Does it sound like fanta-scientific talk? For the non-believers it does. Each chakras point is located at the most important glands in the human body and near the spine, each one releases electromagnetic vibrations and life force happens.

“It is hardly a coincidence that everything on Earth has a color which unconsciously we surround ourselves with. Even when we eat, unconsciously we choose colors of food we feel the need or lack of it in our body.

Every human being transforms the cosmic energy according to his/her biological structure, food is therefore an irreplaceable element to restore and balance our energy. Food cannot be neglected, but unfortunately often, little attention is put on this matter. In addition to simple Chromotherapy techniques, nutrition is indispensable to restore and balance the body’s energy. The colors of the vegetables and fruits we consume are important and must be constantly present in our diet. Even our mood depends on the energy that we generate.”

This purple cabbage originally was green, like all the cabbages. I planted the bottom hardcore in a pot, mixed in coffee ground and eggshells, all from my kitchen, watered it when needed, unknowingly I changed the PH of the ground and voila’ the green cabbage turned purple. It is now a beautiful decorative plant.

I have a little purple and blue in every expression of my life. In my garden, a beautiful patch of blue agapanthus makes me happy when in bloom.

    I must be honest, Valentina, blue is not a colour that attracts me. I like pink, orange and yellow best and at a push red. I generally avoid blue or black unless I am going to a work function or a funeral. I love bright colours and floral patterns. This post was fascinating and I enjoyed learning this information which is new to me.

      I understand Robbie, I believe we all have colors that do not agree with us. For me, black is a color that no longer does anything for me, unless it is a pair of shoes. These weekly color challenges I have organized are only meant to help us go through anxious times and distract from them. If we happen to learn a thing or two then I am happy. Thanks for your comment and visit.
