Add some blue to your décor
Blue is a classic choice when it comes to home decor. Extremely versatile, blue can be either as light as the sky, or as deep and dark as the ocean. For this reason, it can be used in every room of your home. The following suggestions will inspire you to add some blue to your home.
Blue represents both confidence and humility, qualities that are not mutually exclusive. Its enveloping and restful effects make it ideal for the bedroom. To avoid looking like a child’s bedroom, stay away from lighter blues. Choose a shade of blue such as cobalt and accent it with animal prints, for example.
Choose a shade of blue that will highlight your cabinetry and complement your backsplash and countertops.
The bathroom seems to be the most natural room to add a peaceful and relaxing shade of blue. Choose a modern contemporary colour like turquoise or a slightly washed out blue, similar to your favourite pair of jeans. Against white ceramic tiles, either of these choices will be spectacular.
The living room
In the living room, different colours of blue have the tremendous ability to complement each other without affecting the overall harmony of the decor. Dare to mix a variety of shades and patterns to create a highly textured and inviting look.
The dining room
As the centrepiece of your home, the dining room is the room in which excesses are allowed. It is the room in which some of your best times with friends and family are spent. To add visual interest and spark conversation, incorporate a variety of blue elements for a fun, interesting look.
Ignored for many years, pastels are making a comeback. These milky, washed out colours can add softness and tranquility to your space. Plus, they’re easy on the eyes and can be applied without fuss. Lavender, celadon green, light blue, soft yellow, pearl grey, or even sandy beige are all excellent choices for your decor.
