Incorporating Blue in Home Decor

blue in living roomFrom pale ice blue to deep indigo, incorporating blue in home decor is having its day in the sun. Living here in Santa Barbara makes it easy to be inspired by the vast ocean, beautiful azure skies, lovely hydrangeas, and even sea glass. Don’t be afraid to bring the blue inside your home!
Interior designers have used natural blue hues forever in an effort to reflect the colors of the ocean and create a laid-back seaside feel, even in locations far from the beach. Think bold blue dinnerware, combined with bright white for a crisp, clean look and feel. Bring softness to otherwise industrial furniture with ocean inspired throw pillows. In the kitchen, it’s easy to have form meet function with beach inspired bright blue accessories: from everyday items such as cookware and canisters, to wallpaper. In your living room or den, shades of blue in various patterns create harmony without being over-matched. Wake-up your sleeping space with blue shades that create a calming vibe. Whether crisp and tailored or soft and casual, the classic blue hue never goes out of style.
The bottom line when it comes to decorating in blue is don’t be afraid! Go ahead and mix patterns to add visual interest. (Florals and stripes live well together.) The key is to stay within the same color palette and introduce accents in natural tones to keep the room feeling warm and comfortable.
