Summer Bedroom Interior Design Ideas Using Blue
Cool and relaxing blue is the ideal colour for bedrooms. Just because you’re using blue doesn’t mean that you have to opt for a coastal look; many interior design styles are well suited to blue. Likewise blue doesn’t necessarily mean pale tones, darker navy and blues with purple undertones can also provide a chic and stylish colour scheme. Remember that blue is classed as a cold colour so you’ll need to get the colour balance right if you’re to feel warm while you sleep – blues with red undertones are ideal.
Lace, floral patterns and Chintz are perfect for creating a Vintage styled bedroom. Look for blue curtains which have a repeat floral pattern, preferably one with small flowers trailing upwards as this will give the illusion of more height to your bedroom. Vintage will also allow you to mix and match bedding patterns with the patterns of curtains – the ability to use a variety of different patterns within the same room is what gives Vintage its homely appeal. Bring the assortment of patterns together by using bed-cushions which highlight each of the prints and colour differences.
Soft pale tones or duck-egg are great for creating a traditionally styled blue bedroom. Look for curtains and bedding which match, plain or pattered – both will work well and give you an elegant and refined bedroom style. Creams, ivories and off-whites are better than brilliant whites and will help to make the bedroom look and feel warmer.
Opt for the brighter hues of blue such as sky blue or Mediterranean blue if you want to liven a bedroom up – alternatively dark navy blue teamed with white or cream offers a fresh and modern bedroom look which deviates from the norm. Eyelet curtains will also bring a modern look to a bedroom and can be easily co-ordinated with bedding if you prefer a matching ensemble.
Neon and electric blues will bring a chic and stylish contemporary look to your bedroom. Try using full length bedroom curtains teamed with a lightweight voile to create a double layered effect which provides you with style and privacy. Contrast vivid blues with brilliant white to make a bedroom look light and airy – keep patterns bold if you’re going to use them – contemporary bedrooms should steer away from ditzy prints.
