These blue living room ideas will make you think again!

Dark blue wall? Are you sure? In this post, we take a look at blue living room ideas. For too long, blue walls have had a bad reputation. They were perceived as cold and uninviting. Not a particularly welcoming color, especially on a cold winters night.

Listen to this post…

However, times change and so do trends. Blue is as popular as ever and the versatility is fully on display on the images below.

From a decor perspective, there is a psychological benefit. The color blue is considered to be incredibly beneficial to the body and the mind. It is a very calming color palette that is associated with calm skies and calm sea’s.

However, if done right, blue shades can produce a spectacular effect. Warm, inviting and very stylish. Combine the blue tone with accent pieces, contrasting colors, natural materials, golds and copper and you are in for a very individual, yet stylish space.

Take a look at the images below for some blue living room ideas and inspiration.

This blue living room has a Parisian appeal

You wont find many more elegant living rooms than this example here. It is so beautiful, amazingly well done. The color is light and airy, almost as if it has some historical significance. The way the a gold color accents the light blue wall colour is incredible, and works so well to give the room more depth. Obviously, this is a huge room, so for most people, you would have to re-imagine this color scheme into smaller settings.

This dark blue living room creates a great balance…

This is a brave color choice given how dark it is, but I have to say that it works well in this sitting room. The color shade has a matte flat finish, which I think helps. The huge windows really make this work, introducing plenty of light into the space which offsets the natural darkness of the blue.

Notice that the ceiling remains white, this is always a good idea when you have very dark colors on the accent wall. It illuminates that natural light in the room and adds some depth to the blue paint color. The accent pillows in blue help to add consistency on the brown living room sofa. It helps to have that consistency…therefore, blue pillows with a blue color scheme. You may also want to consider these grey and blue living room ideas.

These royal blue living room ideas must inspire your thinking…

This is an example of a more modern blue living room. It gives a really good example of how to introduce blue into a living room without overdoing it. The actual blue is broken up with a geometric pattern that flows through to other aspects of the room, such as the rug. I also appreciate the way that they have introduced some natural brown colors into the room. This breaks up the binary colors of blue and white, bringing in natural feel.

Dark blue living room ideas create a lovely environment…

A feature wall or a focus wall is a great place to introduce blue living room design. The color blue is a teal blue which historically, has always been associated with richness. It is clearly a very beautiful and classy color. The way teal complements blacks and natural brown colors is amazing and is a great use of a darker shade.
