Beautiful Blue Bedrooms We Love

Beautiful Blue Bedroom Decor Ideas [Plus Tips!]

The color blue symbolizes loyalty, strength, wisdom & trust, and is known to have a calming effect on the psyche, which is one of the reasons blue bedrooms are so popular.

Blue is one of the most popular colors for bedrooms, especially contemporary or modern bedrooms. Blue has strong associations with trust, security, and loyalty which makes this color perfect for a bedroom space. There are many blue bedroom decor ideas but you need to consider the different shades of blue so your room will have the desired effect.

When we think of the color blue, we often think of the sky or the sea. Both of these immense bodies of nature provide a soothing sense of grandeur and wonder that makes the color blue perfect for creating a serene and beautiful bedroom. But there are so many options when it comes to creating a beautiful bedroom, and many different reasons why one would choose different shades, hues, and tones of blue.

The color psychology of blue can help you choose which shade would be best for your room. Here are some tips on how to create a beautiful blue bedroom room according to the color psychology of blue.

For example, if you want your bedroom to create feelings of trust, security, and loyalty then it should include these shades of blue:

  • Sky blue
  • Pale pinkish-blue
  • Light blue
  • Aqua
  • Turquoise.

If you want your bedroom to create feelings of calmness and serenity then it should include these shades of blue:

  • Cornflower blue
  • Dark blue
  • Medium-blue
  • Pale tones of grey-blue

An elegant and stylish contemporary bedroom will need a bright color scheme that includes details in silver, gray, and black for a glamorous look. This type of design is inspired by the interior decorating styles of Hollywood stars who love modern designs with a vintage vibe. You can create a relaxing mood by painting one wall green as this color creates feelings of calmness.

A romantic bedroom with a feminine touch needs soft colors that are tranquil and serene. This type of design features elegant drapes, plush fabrics, tassels that reflect femininity, taupe or white details for a traditional Victorian decor that evokes feelings of romance.

It is important to use colors in balance so it will have the desired effect on your bedroom space. Here are some tips on how you should incorporate colors in your bedroom:

The first thing you need to consider is what style you want to achieve so you can pick your ideal shade of blue. The next step is to pick the complementary colors that you will use to create harmony with your blue choice and create a well-rounded design.

For example, if you want a more glamorous look then you can use silver as the accent color as it reminds us of shiny stars and elegant details. However, if you want your bedroom to create a relaxing mood then pale tones of grey, cream, or white could be a better choice because they evoke feelings of calmness and serenity. You can also opt for one wall painted a complementary green as it creates feelings of calmness, or if you want your bedroom to create a romantic mood then choose soft colors that are tranquil such as taupe, taupe-gray, cream, lavender-grey, etc.

The colors of your bedroom can influence different emotions that you experience when in the room. It is important to consider all factors when picking out a shade for your space because if it is off then it can create an undesirable effect on your mood.

Elegance abounds in this beautiful bedroom. From the wall treatment to the pillows and bedding to the delicate blue flowers on the light fixture, everything works together perfectly.

Even though this is a smaller room, the blue does not feel overwhelming because of the large cream headboard and light-colored drapery that help provide a stark contrast and maintain visual interest. 

Although normally we would recommend avoiding dark colors when decorating a small space, it’s ok for a bedroom to feel a bit cozier than other rooms in the house.

The color blue brings feelings of calmness and serenity, which is why it is perfect for a bedroom. And although the color blue is often described as peaceful, tranquil, secure, and orderly, that doesn’t mean that these bedroom designs are boring. Far from it!

The color blue is both unique and versatile. Each shade or variation of blue can mean a different thing, from the color of the sky, which is considered to be calming to the darkest of blues, which are often linked to sophistication and intelligence.

Also, check out the clever way that wall lamps were installed on the side of the shelves to provide accent lighting without taking up much-needed shelf space.
