Blue Designs for a Blue Interior
It’s a color that is simply timeless, adored throughout all eras of interior design in one form or another. Blue is classic and universal. It can be used in gentle, light shades for a soothing, zen interior, or in bold, bright shots of color for energy and playfulness. It can look smart in a home office, and clean in the kitchen. You can play it up for the kids’ rooms, and tone it down for the relaxing bedroom. There is virtually nowhere that you can use blue in your interior decor that it won’t look perfect, and that’s why we love a blue interior so much.
This season, choose a shade of blue that compliments your existing decor and shows your true colors. The modernist with contemporary furniture may want to opt for a bold statement of cobalt.
If you have an old-school, stately interior with dark stained wood and lots of bookshelves, try Tiffany Blue to tie the vintage feel together. If your space is nautical and preppy, consider shades of navy. Feeling contemporary and modern? A splash of teal in accent decor works perfectly for just that. Whichever shade you end up choosing, you can’t go wrong with the most classic, universally adored color out there.
Wondering how to incorporate beautiful blue into your design in the trendiest way? We’ve rounded up some ideas on what’s in right now and how to use rugs in your beautiful blue interior.
Cobalt Blue Interior Design
The color cobalt blue has been popping up in fashionable homes everywhere lately. Magazines, designers, and blogs are abuzz about it. Celebrities are making appearances wearing cobalt blue, and the color appeared in multiple fall fashion collections.
Popular interior designers such as Claire Brody have declared that “vibrant blue is back”. All of this means that cobalt blue as a pop of color is definitely a trend that will stick around for the time being.
So what makes cobalt blue the hottest flavor of the season? Somewhere between bright blue and navy blue, it is a vibrant yet subdued color. It goes perfectly with white, silver, grey, black, brown and beige. This makes it a great accent color.
Antique Rugs with Modern Furniture
The eclectic look is increasing in popularity and you will see a lot of it this fall, especially in interior design and decoration. One trend you will not be able to miss is the pairing of antique rugs with modern, industrial furniture. Representing two different eras, the old and the new, they perfectly complement each other to create a sophisticated yet warm look.
While modern, industrial furniture perfectly combines simple aesthetics with functionality, it is often viewed as lacking in warmth. That’s where antique rugs come in. With their colorful and intricately woven patterns and motifs, which often tells stories of faraway lands from days gone by, antique rugs add an air of warmth and history. They also add class and elegance to the décor.
Modern Geometric Prints in Blue
Are you a fan of geometric prints? If you are, then you are in luck because mod geometric prints are going to be everywhere this season. Even if you aren’t a fan yet, you will become one because they are stylish, clean, and add dimension to your decoration.
While floral prints have made a big comeback lately, this season, get ready to see them replaced by color blocked geometrics and tessellations. Mod geometric prints are great for everything from rugs, cushions and upholstery, to furniture and walls.
