Welcoming spring and summer with a different shade of blue by Montblanc. Each and every day we are all surrounded by colours some plain and some bright - brilliant blues, zealous reds and deep purples. Certain colours stimulate our motivation and the creativity inside us evoking happiness and optimism; in a single glimpse we see the whole colour spectrum its a powerful form of communication. Colour can sway our thoughts and how we are feeling; colours can change our actions and what we plan on doing and how we do them.
Take Jodhpur in India and imagine walking through the alleys in between the houses along the beautiful blue streets discovering the different shades of blue on the walls of 'The Blue City'. This was an indicator or social class and the blue colour has now become to define the Thar Desert city.
Blue is one of the three primary colours, it was also an important colour within the decoration and art since ancient times, the semi-precious stone Lapis which was used in ancient Egypt times for both jewellery and ornamental pieces. Blue is the colour that is most commonly associated with harmony, faithfulness, confidence, distance, infinity, cold, sadness and the imagination; the colour is the most popular colour within communities chosen as their favourite colour on the colour spectrum wheel. Blue has also been associated with masculinity just ahead of black. We express ourselves through colour from what we wear, how we accessorize and how we decorate our lives.
Jodhpur, India has its practical reasons for blue painted walls this is for keeping the houses cool throughout the warmer months. Montblanc say "there is something quite magical about being surrounded by its different shades. The light changes, the mood changes, the whole environment changes, and the busyness of India fades into the background." We couldn't agree more the lighter and deeper tones of blue look simply stunning as Montblanc model strolls down the back alleys of Jodhpur.
