Have you been itching to add some color to your home but don’t know where to start? With so many options, it can be quite the task to settle on a suitable hue. Luckily, 2017 has been a great year for color, especially blue. It’s cool, calm and collected. It’s beautiful no matter if dark or light. There are so many shades of it that you can have fun picking out the perfect one for you. Here are a few different ways to accent your rooms with blue, our 2017 top color for a home makeover.
One of the easiest ways to incorporate a new color is with textiles. Rugs and pillows are easily interchangeable. Enjoy mixing different textures and embellishments throughout your home. If you’re looking for something more traditional with a hint of glam, try a classic combination of navy blue and gold.
Painting your walls is a more complicated task than switching out pillows or rugs, but it is totally worth it. Adding a shade of blue on an accent wall sets the mood for the entire space. You can make the room warm and inviting or dark and sultry. The walls can be solid or patterned. It’s all up to you and your tastes. The beauty of blue is that it works well in both feminine and masculine spaces.
One or two large pieces of abstract wall art in a range of blue hues as seen below can be calming and thought-provoking. It can bring out the best in your furniture. You could also consider creating a gallery wall of mirrors and blue images with different frames for a trend-setting look.
