Outside of blue being my favorite color I’ve noticed that it’s made a comeback in decorating in a big way. Not only are people leaning towards more blues, they’re leaning towards the brighter more electric blues that add a huge POP to any color scheme. Blue is probably the most calming color because we associate it with water and sky — that’s not to say a brighter more electric blue will keep you calm and resting in your seat. Take a look at the mix of blues I found and see which one works best for you.
A calming, more elegant living room with subtle and soft blues
A baby blue sofa with a bolder bamboo wallpaper adds an edge to the room and makes it less traditional
Bolder fabrics from Quadrille create a nice splash in this LR
A turquoise painted floor changes this kitchen from drab to fab very quickly
Ashley Whittaker painted her bookcase in an aqua high gloss which adds just enough punch without going overboard
A beautiful navy blue den. Simple yet divine
A real simple baby blue wall and navy blue stripe on the floor gives this otherwise dull off white furniture a little lift
Another blue walled room that’s filled with fun, trendy fabrics and a zebra rug that’s calling for entertainment
This dining room is definitely for the daring, pop art loving, strong contrast kind of person. If you’re going to use an electric blue on the walls…black and white are just enough to complete the room
Have fun with your wallpaper and floors by choosing geometric or tropical prints in blue
These blue throw cushions will add a ton of flavor to your furniture and may even hide the fact that it’s outdated and needs a facelift!
