Blue living rooms come in all shapes and sizes. From traditional to modern, to everything in between, blue is a color that spans across styles like no other. In fact, next to neutrals, there’s no grasscloth-covered color to decorate with than blue. So whether your tastes turn to bright and bold, or soft and subtle, these blue living room ideas are sure to provide ample inspiration.
A classic sitting room is the ideal setting for traditional and restrained Wedgwood blue walls. When paired with the white beadboard ceiling and light hickory floors the color reads almost like a neutral, yet it still lends enough depth to keep the room feeling robust. The color combined with the room’s architectural details prove that a space can have a ton of personality before a single piece of furniture is placed within.
Dark blue grasscloth wallpaper provides the perfect backdrop for two pieces of modern art, while a blue mid-century modern sofa pops against crisp white wainscoting. Despite the use of several dark blues, the room maintains a light, airy feeling thanks to the considered use of white and cream.
When exploring blue living room ideas, colors that combine blue with something else are definitely worth considering. Periwinkle is a combination of blue and violet that can add some fresh and lively flair to all sorts of rooms. While not commonly seen in midcentury modern rooms, this particular shade adds a sense of fun and originality to the space featured here.
The wall color is only one of the blue elements in this traditional living room. The furniture, rug, artwork, and accessories all use various shades of both light and darker blue to tell their stories. In order to create a similar look make sure there’s a complimentary accent color used liberally throughout, and consider symmetry when placing furniture and accessories.
