Blue colour is a fan favorite with many homeowners – and for good reason! It’s a colour that’s as comforting as it is stylish. However, many people struggle with applying this colour in their home interiors successfully. If you’re one of them, here are 5 ideas that can help you make some trendy choices. Let’s take a look:
1. Creating a themed backdrop
The blue backdrop in this image is an innovative way to emulate in your homes. You can use it as an inspiration to merge with some other themes – just as the neo-classical one featured in this image. Similarly, you can use different interior design styles to bring out the best of blue as well. It can be retro, bohemian, or something entirely different.
2. Pick the right shade
Another tip that you should remember while emulating blue colour in your home interiors is that you have to pick up the right shade. This has to be in tandem of the theme. For example, cobalt blue only looks great in retro settings and navy blue looks stunning in retro interior designs. Similarly, sky blue is a contemporary colour while electric blue is a vintage, boho-chic shade.
3. Providing the right contrast
The thing about blue home interiors is that they have to be spruced up by the right contrast or they end up looking very overwhelming. You can do so by choosing shades that are lighter or darker depending on what type of blue you pick. If the blue is lighter, your contrast has to be dark. If your blue is darker, your contrast can be light – preferably white for better visuals.
4. Material contrast is a must
Just like all other colour schemes, material implementation matters a lot when it comes to emulating blue in your homes. For example, the way you introduce blue is going to be different in the form of rugs, in the form of laminates, in the form of floor tiles, and in the form of wallpaper. At the end of the day, all of it depends on your theme or interior design style.
5. Blue on blue
Lastly, if you’re a fan of blue on blue themes, then you have to be able to manage the contrast. For example, the darker shades can be used as borders, framing, and general trimming while the lighter shades can be used at large – just like the bedroom featured in this image.
