The colour blue has always been a very popular colour for decorating a home, mostly because it can hold its own in so many different design schemes and settings. Blue is also one of the most versatile colours for interior design. It’s a universal favourite because of its ability to suit every personality and every style. There are endless variations of the hue, whether you lean toward a cornflower blue, a rich navy, deep cobalt, or soft sky, there is a shade that will match the style of any room in your house. Now let’s explore what colours create a cohesive look with blue.
The coolness of blue often pairs well with other cool tones, like greys and purples. When two cool colours are paired together it brings a sense of calm and stability to a room. For a higher contrasted look, blue actually plays well with warmer colours as well. Introducing oranges and reds will create a much bolder look. Here are some colour combo examples:
