Decorating with Shades of Blue

Hello lovely readers!!  Today is the start of a monthly series I am starting up here on the blog.  It is a decorating with color series and each month I will tackle a new color and discuss what to pair it with and why it works in certain rooms.  Today, we are starting with a classic favorite -blue!

From indigo to royal to ice blue, this hue is a huge hit with professional and novice decorators alike.  It adds a calm and serene vibe to any room in the home.  It pairs very well with yellow, white, silver, lavender, black, green and red.

I love how saturated the blue hues are in the bedroom below.

You can definitely make a statement with a blue velvet sofa.

Blue can be so crisp and light, but dark and moody as well.

I love the boho vibe of these different blue patterns.

Blue even works well in the kitchen.  Love it paired here with brass.

I have been coveting this sectional from Horchow for years.  It is one of the few pieces that satisfies both my husband’s and my needs.  I may have to paint my living room blue if I ever purchase it!

Can we just say, not your basic built in?  This looks so chic with the brass sconces.

I hope you have enjoyed this series.  Next month, I plan to tackle an uncommon choice- yellow!
