No matter the shades of blue you prefer, the color is there. Decorating with blue, even in small amounts, will offer your home the pop of color you need to finish your space. And it draws your eye. The island adds charming appeal painted in blue. The fabric roman shades are finished with blue trim along the edges, adding definition to tie in with the color scheme. And the fabric cushions? They add their own custom pattern to the space. The coordination of all of these elements create a successful finish.

Personalize It with Patterns…

Once you bring blue into your design equation, it opens up a world of possibilities. You can mix the shades of blue, and it just works. You can also introduce patterns that you never thought would go together, and it adds character and allure. The overall ‘nautical’ theme of this bedroom makes the ocean-inspired pieces come together, while also allowing the blue stripes of the area rug to fit nicely. The botanical bedding and artwork show just how versatile patterns and prints can be once you’ve decorated with shades of blue. Another reason to decorate your bedroom in blue? This soothing shade is supposed to bring more hours of sleep at night–what’s better than that?

Design Your Own Backdrop…

The beauty of blue is that it pairs well with every other color. Not only that, but using blue in contrast with other colors can achieve a fabulous result. This wall of bookshelves in blue offers not only a gorgeous backdrop for the space, but it allows the vibrant orange to create a striking look. When decorating with blue, choose a blue backdrop if you want to add depth to the wall while showcasing another bold color in the space. The area rug incorporates blue, while the pattern of the rug adds dimension to the space.
