Blue furniture — an unusual but rewarding option
When you’re choosing a colour palette for a room, there are so many gorgeous options to weigh up ranging from the neutrals that go with anything to the vibrant hues that really stand out. If you love the bright and bold, you could go for purple furniture or green home decor, or you might also consider beautiful blue furniture and accessories for your home.
Blue may feel like an unexpected choice for furniture, but it’s one of our favourite ways to add sophisticated and artistic style to your space. Read on for our look at blue bedroom furniture, fabulous blue living room options, and more.
Why we love blue bedroom furniture and decor
According to colour theory, blue is one of the best colours for your bedroom because it evokes a sense of calm and relaxation, which is obviously ideal for a restful and healthy sleep routine.
One of our favourite ways to incorporate blue in bedroom decor is as the colour for your walls. You can pair pastel blue shades beautifully with common bedroom furniture colours like painted white and light oak, or opt for darker blue shades to complement warm-toned furniture such as mahogany.
If you want some ideas for the best blues to use in your bedroom, check out some of our favourite suggested colour palettes using Little Greene paint hues.
Blue also makes a great colour palette for textiles and accessories in your bedroom. A blue duvet or throw pillows are sure to look lovely with traditional bedding colours like white and cream, and a blue rug or window treatments are also perfect for enveloping your room to create a peaceful atmosphere.
Blue furniture adds on-trend style to your living room
In your living room, blue is the perfect colour to really make a statement and bring a stylish accent to your space. Because so many different shades of blue are used in interior decorating, you can achieve any sort of home decor style using blue furniture and accessories.
Coastal and nautical style is a great option if you want a blue colour palette in your sitting room. This breezy, beachy aesthetic features bright blues, crisp whites, and natural materials like wood and jute that bring a relaxed yet contemporary look to your space.
Looking for something more elegant and contemporary? Opt for dark or jewel-tone blues like navy, sapphire, and cobalt to bring sophisticated style to the room. A piece of blue furniture like a sofa or armchair is also a perfect option for adding a statement-making element to your sitting room. Choose a velvet sofa for a glamorous on-trend look, or a traditional fabric option for a timeless addition to your space.
