What’s soothing, splendid and chic all year round? Here’s a clue: it’s the color blue. Imagine that feeling you get from looking into a sparkling blue pool or into the clear blue sky. Now imagine having that same feeling when you walk into your living room or bedroom. That’d be awesome, right? Well, we can you have you seeing blue in no time. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer subtle touches of color here and there or big splashes of color everywhere. You can start with a light, neutral palette like the Ashley collection featured below, and enhance it with blue pillows, wall décor or a blue upholstered chair.
If you want to take it to the next level and create an ultra-blue haven, be sure to start with an accessories blueprint. Leave nothing untouched by the color blue. Try hanging a painted canvas on the wall to declare your love for the calming hue. Then, include an aqua blue rug on the floor and adorn your table tops with cool blue glass vases. Your space will be screaming, “I’ve got the blues, and if there’s a cure for it, I don’t want it!”
