Blues & Other Hues

Have you considered adding Blues & Other Hues to your home?

Adding colorful interiors can be overwhelming, but limiting the color to a single accent wall or to room accessories, such as pillows and chairs, is a good way to incorporate the color without becoming too overwhelmed. Using a colorful wall as an accent, or focal point, in a room is a good way to decorate the room, while keeping the color scheme consistent with the home.

Using darker shades of blue is a great way to sooth off-white accents. A darker blue can also enrich a room when paired with dark wood flooring or furnishings. Designing a room with darker shades of blue can be a challenge since too much blue can cause a room to feel dark and crowded. One way to prevent a room from feeling dark and crowded is to pair the darker shades with lighter hues to create a more welcoming and inviting space.

Here are some examples of ways to incorporate blue into your home!
