Color trends may come and go, but primary colors like blue never really go out of >

"Bluerepresents both the sky and the sea, and is associated with open spaces, freedom, intuition, imagination, expansiveness, inspiration, and sensitivity," said Bourn Creative. "The color bluehas positive effects on the mind and the body. As the color of the spirit, it invokes rest and can cause the body to produce chemicals that are calming and exude feelings of tranquility. However, not all blues are serene and sedate. Electric or brilliant blues become dynamic and dramatic, an engaging color that expresses exhilaration."

If youre looking to incorporate the color into your home, you cant go wrong with any or all of these tips.

Bring it into your kitchen

Blue is a great option for kitchen cabinets if you want something other than white. A powdery blue allows you to stay neutral-ish, and easily accommodate adventurous finishes like patterned floor tiles and black counters, if you so wish.


House And Home

Or, take it deeper - waaaaaaay deeper - to create a space that will wow. Cobalt or navy can make a kitchen look incredible, regardless of the size. But if you want to make sure it keeps an airy feel instead of feeling closed in, go for marble slabs and forgo the upper cabinets, like in this gorgeous room.

Use its peaceful quality to your advantage in the bathroom

Because blue is known to be a calming color, its a smart choice for a bathroom if your goal is to impart a spa feel. But that doesnt mean your choices have to be sedate. Here, a standout tile brings the wow factor to an otherwise neutral bathroom.

Swap out your furniture

Because blue is a hot color right now, there are numerous options if you want to bring the color into your furniture or furnishings - and you dont have to look too hard to find something great. We love Rooms To Goss Monaco Court Indigo series, with its saturated color, tufting, and naiheads. The set is surprisingly inexpensive 1,655 for five pieces, or you can split it up, and its part of the stores Sofia Vergara Collection, which probably explains why its so chic.


Rooms To Go

Hang it on the wall

Art can move us in so many ways, and a piece that allows you to sink into it, like this Shawn McNulty piece, does more than just look pretty on a wall.
