The colour of the night sky is one of the most beloved tints in the interior design industry! It’s the perfect colour to accent your homes with when you’re working with a light, minimalist, and classy colour scheme. It has a very charismatic presence that can make any space look wholesome and attractive. If you’re interested, then here are 5 ways you can dress your homes in midnight blue accents!
1. Your low-height flat surfaces
Using low-height surfaces to introduce midnight blue accents is an excellent way. However, there’s a catch, and that dictates that the whole upper half has to be done in lighter hues to balance out and contrast this particular technique. If you look at this image, you’ll see how the dark colour scheme has been expertly balanced with whites in the upper half of the interior design.
2. On one large accent piece
If you want to use midnight blue accents in moderate amounts, you can just introduce them through one large statement piece. It can be anything; from a feature wall to a bed to even a sofa. In this image, you’ll se how the use of this particular blue hue has been used on the bed sheets to harmonise with the austere setting of the rest of the bedroom interior design!
3. Regular furniture
If you’re working with a minimalist interior design theme with very little ornamentation, then you can even make all of your furnishings articulate the midnight blue accent scheme. The trick is to balance it out with plain or neutral colours in the background. Take the interior design in this image as an example; the white walls and light wooden floors make a great backdrop for the rest of dark coloured furniture!
4. In contrast and moderation
If you’re working with a casual and informal ambiance like the Scandinavian style, midnight blue accents can make your space look positively gorgeous and ground the entire setting. The bedroom come nursery in this image has been largely done in whites and woods, but the tiny ratio of darkness is all that it needed for the whole space to look balanced and harmonised. This is exactly how you do it!
5. The perfect ratio
Deciding on the perfect ratio of your dark to light colour scheming is an important part of using midnight blue in your interior designs. All the above techniques mostly use eye balling, but if you’re not that experienced or don’t trust your instinct, here’s a pro-tip for you: the ratio of dark colours is always one quarter to 3 quarters compared to lighter hues!
