There’s no easier hue to work with than blue, in all its warm and cool tones. Its wide range of shades, from delicate pastels to deep cerulean, makes it perfect to experiment with. Take it traditional with the classic nautical mixture, or use the wide shades of pale blue to inspire calmness and relaxation in a small personal space. Get inspired by confident scholarly tones, or use vibrant shades of teal and aquamarine to inject brightness into a dark space. Highlight the metallic side of blue with printed aluminum wall art, or accentuate the soft and warm side of the color with framed photographs printed onto soft paper. Pair blue paint with wooden floors and the smell of sea salt will hang in the air all year long. Blue accessories can change the mood of the room, and provide a pleasing pick-me-up every morning. Use cushions, quilts, and knick-knacks for a cozy cottage feel.
