My house is a disaster these days! Boxes of Christmas stuff are stacked in the living room and I feel like everything is in disarray. We recently purchased a new sectional (more on that later) which led to rearranging the family room … which led to moving stuff around in the living … which led to rearranging the dining room. I need a little rest and relaxation, so today’s post is about decorating with blue. Blue is peaceful and calming and just what the doctor ordered! Here are some inspirational examples I found on Houzz.
In the first home I ever owned, I painted the kitchen cabinets this shade of blue.
You don’t often see blue in a kitchen but I love this shade of country blue.
Pale blue walls create a calming dining room. Dark floors create drama while white trim adds crispness.
When I think of the perfect room to be painted blue … it has to be the bedroom!
Its calming hue is perfect for falling peacefully to sleep.
Another peaceful blue bedroom with a statement bed and a beautiful green table!
This farmhouse style entryway uses the same hue of blue on both the walls and trim.
Pale wood floors create a coastal vibe.
And this entryway brushes a vibrant blue on the doors and stair railing.
If you’re not a big fan of blue, you could simply add a single decorative piece like this mirror.
Blue and yellow is a classic color combination inspired by the Swedish flag.
Dark blue on the walls of a small room creates an intimate, cozy feeling.
I love a bit of black when decorating with blue and it looks great in this kitchen with touches of red.
And that door!! I love that arched Dutch door.
Looking at these blue rooms makes me feel more at ease … but I’ll feel even better when my mess is cleaned up!
