Seems like we’re all looking for design inspiration, so this summer while you’re at the ocean, lake, mountains or visiting a new city notice how the blue sky provides a backdrop for all those bursting colors of nature and balances the gray tones typically found in a city.
Summertime Blues …
Unless of course, you’re in a city full of architectural color then the blue sky harmoniously softens the skyline.
At home, blue is the number one color of choice, especially for bedrooms. And using blue in your home doesn’t automatically mean painting. This Navy, White, and Tan bedding have set the color scheme for the entire bunk bed bedroom. In fact, the shiplap walls painted white created a beautiful backdrop for this crisp color palette.
And blue has claimed a top spot in kitchens too! From Roman Shades to Kitchen Cabinetry, Upholstery and Accessories!
Blue home decor encompasses all shades of blue from pale blue, turquoise, blue-gray and navy.
For kids spaces, blue painted walls provide a neutral backdrop for all their treasures; from artwork to stuffed animals and games.

Combining Blue and green in an interior color scheme provides an analogous color scheme.
Analogous color schemes use colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. They usually match well and create serene and comfortable designs. Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are harmonious and pleasing to the eye. From http://www.tigercolor.com/

My Tip ~
Not ready to commit to a paint, sofa or wallpaper? Try a few well-appointed accent pieces like …
Draperies, an ottoman, accent pillows or an area rug that you can seasonally change out will give you the chance to introduce blue into your home without a permanent or high dollar commitment.
