Intensify the look of your home by adding deep blue accents. 

Deep blue creates a feeling of safety and positivity.

 

Deep blue, similar to the color of the night sky or a beautiful sea, suggests a mood of calm and harmony. This beautiful color comes with several names and nuances of hue, including:  

  • Cobalt

  • Royal Blue

  • Navy

  • Indigo

  • Lapis

  • Mediterranean Blue

  • Midnight Blue

 

Deep blue helps bring attention to other colors in a room, especially complementary warm hues, including tangerine, lemon, ochre and rust. Deep blue is a beautiful accent with neutrals such as grey, ivory, white and beige, and even works well with lighter shades of blue. On the cool side of the color spectrum, deep blue is beautiful when paired with periwinkle, lavender and pink.

 

Deep blue complements almost any design plan, from the most modern look to Asian décor to traditional and Victorian styles. Consider using a deep blue tone in the following ways:      

  • In striped, plaid or gingham patterns

  • For a dramatic accent wall in your powder room or foyer

  • Paired with soft and gauzy white fabrics for a summer décor

  • To create a nautical or beachy theme

  • To build an Asian look with ceramic stools, lamps and vases

  • To invent a Moroccan style with patterned tile, fabrics and rugs      

 

Create passion and peacefulness in your interior plan this year by adding a touch of deep blue.
