Bedroom Walls

Muted blue walls and dark wood furniture blend to create a harmonious backdrop for a primary bedroom. Minimal accessories and décor create a relaxing atmosphere that’s reminiscent of a day at the spa. A bold coloured accent in the room adds a splash of contrasting colour to prevent the monochromatic space from looking washed out.

Navy Blue

A rich navy blue is classic wall colour that works well in formal spaces like dining rooms. For a look that’s more whimsical than serious, however, try pairing the colour with energetic shades of pastel pink, mint green, or turquoise. Incorporate off-white or ivory hues elsewhere to balance the palette. Navy blue also works wonderfully in a bedroom. The soothing shade helps create a cocoon-like atmosphere that’s ideal for sleeping spaces. To keep dark navy walls from looking too somber, lighten the look with white trim or cream-coloured bedding and décor.

Blue and White Walls

If an all-blue living room feels like too much of a commitment, use wall treatments to embrace a two-tone look. Balance your blue walls with white wainscoting, or you could add a pop of blue into a room by painting a feature wall. This way you get the excitement of the blue without it being too overwhelming.
