According to color psychology, blue is the most relaxing color. It helps to calm the mind and have a peaceful impact on your psyche. So if you want a calm, relaxing, restful interior design and you are fretting over the color scheme, then a cool blue shade is the answer to all your design woes. It triggers a soothing response that’ll make you feel incredibly amazing. So, here are 5 amazing tips you can use to introduce blue highlights in your homes.
1. An accent wall
Since blue color is a major source of relaxation, you need to average out its use throughout your space. It needs to have an instant and major impact, which is why creating a plain, soft blue accent wall in your interior designs is the best course of action. This image shows how you can sport this idea in a balanced manner in your own interior designs.
2. A stylish contrast
While the blue color does represent a major part of your color scheme, you also need to add in some visual contrast that is just as cool but also breezy. White is the best couple color you can blend with soft blues. The sofa, furniture and even the decorative feature vase in this image is a great example of how you can be trendy while translating this concept in an actual space.
3. An accent light or two
Another good way to introduce a little bit of relaxing blues in your interior designs is by using lighting accents. Of course you cannot dress your homes in actual blue light, but you can do the next best thing: go for a blue themed light fixture. The one featured in this image is an excellent choice. It’s a cool shade of blue, and merges fantastically with the rest of the design.
4. With kitchen backsplashes
Kitchen backsplashes tend to add lots of personality and character to the actual space, so when you’re trying to add a comfortable edge to this particular room, blues are the best way to go. You can get a stylish effect by going for tinted glass backsplashes and embellishing them with under cabinet lights.
5. A Simple Paint of Wall
You do not always have to go all out when imbuing blues in your interior designs. You can simply go for the simplest possible solution to get things going in an aesthetically pleasant way. The feature wall in this bedroom is an excellent example of how just a smooth coat of light blue paint can make your space a total haven!
