Do you fancy yourself a lover of blue colour? Do you feel relaxed within a light blue ambiance? Is this one of your favorite colours on the palette? Then don’t be afraid to emulate it in your home interiors. We know that it’s an unconventional choice and many people don’t have the first clue on how to use it. This is why we’ll be sharing a few design tips regarding this matter today. Let’s take a look:
1. Choose the lightest tint as foreground
Everybody knows that there are too many shades of blue to count. There’s navy blue, cerulean, sky blue, electric blue, and so many more. Each one has a different impact on the human psyche. If you’re going for a relaxing vibe, then use sky blue as the foreground. Navy blue is used for feature walls, and cerulean and electric blues are reserved for accenting. Know the purpose before choosing your shade.
2. A darker shade of furniture
If you’ve chosen a light blue backdrop, then you have to be extremely careful about the kind of furniture upholstery that you choose. Remember that it has to contrast the background, therefore it has to be a shade or few darker than the walls. Navy blue is an excellent choice – especially for the dining chairs and sofa upholstery.
3. White light enhancement
A blue colour scheme is one of those rarities that actually looks even more beautiful with cool white lighting. This is because the white light merges well with the blue hue and its overall impact is extremely beautiful. The bedroom featured in this image is a great example of how you can merge these two components seamlessly with each other.
4. With blue tinted glass
You can add a gorgeous blue sheen to your typical white home interiors by using blue tinted glass. It can either be installed in an aluminum door frame or it can be installed as a window to your open kitchens to retain a sense of transparency. The set-up featured in this image is an excellent example of such a phenomenon.
5. White accompaniment
If you think that you can use all-blue in your home interiors then think again. You have to select a neutral colour for accompaniment or your space will seem very overbearing. White is the perfect hue to inspire some light weight vibes within a blue ambiance. You can introduce it in the form of an entire white feature, textures, and more.
