As we know blue comes is a vast array of different tones and hues and whilst it is typically associated as a cold colour the lighter duck-egg blues, lavender and pastel shades omit warming properties making blue a colour which holds no bounds when it comes to interior design.
Blue is an overwhelming favourite colour, it is perceived as trustworthy, dependable and committed. The colour of sky and the ocean, blue everywhere within our lives.
As the collective colour of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming, however not all blues are serene and sedate. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging colour that expresses exhilaration. So depending on the type of ambience you want to create in your bedroom choose the tone and shade of blue wisely.
Some tones or the overuse of blue may come across as cold or uncaring, so again it needs to be given careful consideration. Despite stereotypical assumptions blue is the least gender specific colour, having equal appeal to both men and women. It is also associated with royalty, hence royal blue, and can create an opulent look when teamed with this year’s on-trend metallics, silver and gold.
Blue bedspreads are ideal for adding blue to the focal point of your bedroom. For a contemporary look you need to be investing in a super king size bed and of course super king size bedding. For a trendy contemporary look rather than have blue neon lights put under the valance of your car use this concept to create a striking and very dramatic impact into your bedroom.
Team with crisp white to create a real show stopper, as the blue will naturally reflect off of the white to give a chic and stylish look which is both exciting and soothing. Full length voile curtains in white will also add to the overall effect and give the room a sense of balance and cohesion.
Statement headboards are on-trend this year, however, go one step further and use a contemporary statement bed which has the mattress sunken into it and then surround it with hidden lights! This style is not for the faint hearted and you’ll also need a decent sized bedroom to pull off this funky style.
