Last week we looked at some stunning green bedrooms on ; this week we turn into blue. Soft blues with a bit of gray or green remind us of the sea and skies and have a tendency to bring in a calm vibe. Bolder blues like aqua, turquoise and cobalt have a fun, youthful vibrancy and operate well in contemporary bedrooms. Deep, dark shades of navy are cool and elegant — and play well with any colour and with all styles of decor.

Have a look at 10 transcendent blue bedrooms along with some strategies for how to use blue in your bedroom.

Go minimalist without the starkness by painting a wall or the ceiling in your bedroom a gentle icy blue. I enjoy using blue and white colors in rooms which have wood flooring and furniture. The wood tones add warmth and a great comparison . It is clean, cool and crisp, yet comfortable and inviting.

I adore this specific blue hue — a not-quite-navy blue which has a bit of grey to tone it down, despite how deep it is. It reminds me of half-faded blue jeans and works well as a neutral background. This is a colour that may take dashes of other bolder colours, very similar to the way you’re able to pair any colored T-shirt with your favorite jeans.

This is a brilliant palette for a bedroom set at a town house. The skies blue wall covering softens the effects of the hard surfaces and lines, along with the bit of glowing yellow onto the window wall brightens up the space. The space is brilliant but still has a calming vibe.

Can not settle on just one blue hue? Play with a range of blue shades for a colorful focal point in a space. Paint a piece of shelving or furniture, or go for an interesting graphic on the wall.

A cool bedroom deserves to be clad in a cool blue. Most wood tones have a tendency to read as orange, and because orange and blue are opposites on the colour wheel, blue is a superb choice to showcase intriguing wood-clad details.

When utilizing a bright, bold paint colour in a bedroom, I have a tendency to limit it to a single accent wall. The headboard wall typically creates a nice focal point in the space, so that is a fantastic selection for getting the eye color.

If you prefer all four bedroom walls be clad in the identical blue, pick a milder, more toned-down hue like this gray-blue. You are going to get a soothing space that is ideal for slumbering.

This bolder turquoise is a interesting colour for a teenager’s room. And it is super easy to swap this out for another colour once her or his taste varies.


Here’s a smart way to add color yet keep it toned down in a bedroom — paint part of the wall with your preferred blue hue and maintain the rest white or light-colored. This permits you to inject a shade that might be overwhelming if it covered all four walls.

A gentle aqua blended with hot neutrals always invokes the shore for me and makes me feel immediately relaxed.
