Indigo blue, azure, ultramarine, navy, every blue invites itself into all rooms to bring home a breath of freshness or evoke the marine spirit.
Are you bored of white? Do you want to bring a little touch of color to your home? Go for blue! This color, which is associated with the sea and the sky, is appreciated around the world. It is also the favorite color of the French. The blue, which symbolizes freedom and peace, suitable for any interior.
Which blue to choose and which colors to associate it with?
Each shade of blue has its ambiance! The gray and weathered blues remind us of the Atlantic and its fishermen’s huts while the hard blues remind us of the Mediterranean Sea.
Depending on the colors you associate with it, you may as well give your interior a summer or winter atmosphere. Combined with white, a dark blue will give your room a marine spirit. But if this same blue meets a cashmere brown or a gray, the atmosphere will be decidedly more wintery.
A turquoise blue bathroom
The turquoise accents of the wallpaper’s zellige patterns and the mural’s curacao invite you to dive into the South Sea from your sink. Contrasted, these bright blues, graphic or united, give the bathroom a very decorative atmosphere.
The good idea: bet on natural accessories, in glass, wood, or wicker, to accompany these bright blues gently. Note the acid yellow note that illuminates the room.
A summer lounge in indigo blue
Deep blues, navy or indigo, take the place of black to dress the house with refinement when it puts on its summer attire. Chic, impeccable, they inspire a contemporary decor with clean lines that suggest a certain summer elegance. Shades full of restraint and moderation.
The good idea: electrify this duo of large flat areas in blue and white with the presence of cushions with graphic patterns.
A living room in total blue look
Navy and turquoise combine to create a cozy and cozy space in the living room. Walls, sofas, and accessories dare an almost total look in these enveloping blues just lit with a Berber-inspired carpet or small raw furniture, log table, or straw stool. The imposing candles carried by wooden candlesticks bring an ultimate note of warmth.
The good idea: add a touch of mystery to this Colorama with a profusion of new and surprising objects, like a cabinet of curiosities.
A wall with a gradient of blue
The blue color, usually so calm and consensual, electrifies the room here and gives it a very arty side, reinforced by the ultra-modern white furniture. The lighter tone on the base of the wall, enhanced with a more intense blue, gives the impression of being in the ocean’s heart and creates a unique atmosphere.
The good idea: Opt for a gradient applied with a sponge, more intense, and easier to achieve than a clear separation.
A blue and black base
All the chic of this wall is due to the play of colors worked with elegance. The base painted in blue gives depth; it is tempered by the impeccable white that dresses the upper part. This duo is highlighted with a double black braid, which creates a very aesthetic transition. A fashion refinement is applied to the decor.
The good idea: mix the intensity of blue married to black with natural materials such as these bamboo suspensions. They come to calm the atmosphere.
