Named after the flower, cornflower is a stunning medium blue mixed with a small amount of green. As it has much more blue than green within its overall tone, though, it retains the characteristics and relaxing nature of traditional blues. Evoking a sense of tranquility, cornflower brings a natural coolness and calmness to any design.
If you’re looking to find a soothing theme for your design, combine cornflower with other shades of light blue. With cornflower as a background, you can use oranges, yellows, or mint green as accent.
