Blue represents both the sky and the sea, and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, heaven, and intelligence.
The color blue has positive affects on the mind and body. As the color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming and exude feelings of tranquility. Blue helps to slow human metabolism, is cooling in nature, and helps with balance and self-expression. Blue is also an appetite suppressant.
Enough reasons for a blue interior!
This room uses different shades of blue on the walls, floor, and pillows, but because the rest of the room is super neutral, they ~work well together~. See more of this home (designed by Homepolish designer Haley Weidenbaum) here.
3. Or opt for a super affordable reproduction of a blue print.
Bonus: they’re a classy way to show off your geeky side. AllPosters and Fine Art America both have huge selections. You can get the Eiffel Tower print for $6.49 here and the Star Wars print for $6.49 here.
7. …or a stack of pretty blue books.
Basically free bedroom accessories, if you already own the books! From A Library of Design.
You can get these here for $63.
This room keeps the rest of the decor fairly neutral, so the walls shine. See more of it here.
Although they’re a pain to paint over, if you have to paint before you move. See more of this gorgeous home here.
13. Use your deep denim color to accent a bookshelf if the wall color feels like it’s a little much.
Or built-ins, if you have them in your house. These are actually Ikea Billy shelves — see how she transformed them here.
14. Or the door to the bathroom (whether or not it’s a fancy barn door).
See the rest of this gorgeous house by Carolyne Ferguson Design here.
15. Make all of your big pieces of furniture blue, like your dresser.
This is an upgraded Ikea dresser helped by a few pieces of wood trim and some blue paint. Here’s the tutorial.
I mean, reading nooks are an essential part of any bedroom, imho. From here.
17. Build yourself a tufted turquoise headboard to draw attention to what matters most in your room (the bed, duh).
Pick your favorite shade of blue velvet and run with it. Get the tutorial here.
18. Or paint a simple wooden cutout with a linen texture.
Get the tutorial at Martha Stewart.
You can get this linen duvet for $288 at Anthropologie.
This sheet set is $34.99 here.
21. Dial up the monochromatic mood to a 10, and go for blue bedding, blue walls, and maybe even blue accessories.
