Blue bedroom ideas and styles
We have the best blue bedroom ideas for your new look.
Blue is the perfect colour for your bedroom. The colour blue falls within a wide spectrum of shades from the palest hue to an inky blue-black - as a primary colour it forms a wide spectrum of hues. It is also an ideal shade for a bedroom décor, able to contrast and complement other shades beautifully, and has a deeply calming effect as the colour chimes with the sky and sea.
Introduce blue into your decorating scheme based on key factors. If you have large bay windows then statement curtains in an inky-blue hue marries well with floral bedlinen. Add a dramatic centrepoint to a room with a glass chandelier, against a simple backdrop of white walls and a neutral sheepskin rug.
To add a rustic feel to your bedroom, beech, oak and walnut all contrast fantastically with shades of blue. Marry a wooden double bed and furniture with sky-blue bedlinen, add plump white pillows with a subtle blue stripe. A beach-inspired makeover is also wonderfully effective and simple to achieve. Transform a simple divan bed with an oversized fabric-covered headboard with a nautical stripe, and dress the bed with complementing striped bedlinen.
A modern theme for your bedroom can be simply achieved with bold blue wallpaper in an abstract design and patterned bedlinen - add an Oriental-patterned rug for added contrast. Introduce yellow or lime cushions to contrast with the blue tones. For a really bold décor, a peacock-blue headboard or bedlinen is a standout feature.
Create a romantic French vibe to your bedroom with delicately embroidered blue bedlinen and a patterned fabric headboard. Duck-egg blue painted walls contrast beautifully with this theme complemented by cream and neutral accessories.
For a luxurious blue-themed boudoir, Oriental-themed wallpaper acts as a stunning backdrop - team with a luxurious pale-blue satin bedspread and matching cushions. Add a teal velvet headboard and matching bedside tables to complete the look.
