Blue is one of the more soothing colors on the spectrum, and it's perfect for the master bedroom. If you haven't considered blue for your bedroom, consider the wide range of shades available. From pale robins-egg blue to deep navy, there is sure to be a shade that suits your decorating style.
In today's master bedrooms, homeowners want to create a peaceful retreat, an escape from the outside world. Cool blue shades create the perfect backdrop for the master bedroom, as well as the master bathroom and dressing areas.
In traditional bedrooms, deeper shades of blue create a stately backdrop for antiques and classic furnishings, as well as artwork. But a deep shade doesn't have to mean a dark shade; there are plenty of muted and pale tones of blue that create a soft look for those who don't want a dark color on their walls. Consider a blue-grey, or a grey with lavender undertones, for a look that is both comforting and romantic.
In an eclectic or contemporary bedroom, choose a brighter shade of blue and balance the look with window treatments and bed linens in white and gold tones. Pale blue with white accents, furnishing and fabrics create a look that is both crisp and comforting; it works well with shabby chic furniture. Go just a shade brighter and you can create a relaxing tropical feel in your room.
For a cheery look, choose sky-blue and pair it with sunny yellow accents in lamps, throw pillows and window treatments.
