Before They Were Trendy: Bold Blue Walls

BW9

This year we are seeing bold blue walls everywhere, and they remind us of a beautiful project we did a few years ago. Bold blues add instant depth to a room and really make lighter colors pop, whether soft treatments or lighting. We love to see this trend taking center stage this year….

Here’s another shot from the same room showing off the blue wall trend before it was big. We have platinum furnishings to give the space a sharp contrast.  The artwork gives depth of texture and a sense of provenance to the space. The contemporary pillows and fabric on the chairs bring a touch of contemporary to the traditional forms.

Here’s a triple-dose of blue, with blue furniture, blue artwork and blue walls! Again we see beiges and neutrals sprinkled throughout the room to offer some contrast. The mismatched pillows are another hot trend and look great paired against the velvety deep water blue of the sofa. The walls themselves are luxurious, deep and dark, with bookshelves painted to match. We love the distinct feel of this room created by the cocoon of blue.

Another great way to use the bold blue trend is to use another primary color in the artwork. Yellow pops against the dark blue hue, creating a beautiful focal point for the wall. The simplicity of the art lends itself well to the intensity of the paint, and the blue sofa just adds even more depth. We love to see the mismatched pillows again, and are thankful for some more color and complexity against the bold blue.

Feeling a little intimidated about splashing blue paint all over your walls? Opt for a simple blue chair instead. We love how the beige wicker looks against the blue cushions of this chair, giving us those deep blue hues without all the commitment. We love this chair and the flavor it brings to the whole pool area! If you’re not sure about the big trend of the season, try blue pillows, chairs, and artwork to add the blue beauty that’s needed to brighten up any space.
