Using Blue in Your Living Room


Blue is such a popular colour in our homes. Often it is seen in the bathroom, but blue makes a welcome addition to any living space. You just need to know how to use this tranquil colour to instantly add that splash of calming colour to your interior. Below we take inspiration from our fabulous True Blue Collection, and share with you five ways to use blue in your living room.

The Oriental Sideboard

Oriental furniture remains a big trend this year. The blue, elegant, oriental solid wood sideboard from Nine Schools is simply perfect for the living room. This blue is soft and natural, and allows the sideboard to be used as a focal point in the room. A perfect way to add blue, without having to redecorate.

The Oriental Bookcase

The oriental furniture theme continues with this beautiful bookcase. If you love to read and need additional storage for your books, then this bookcase is not only practical, with three sturdy shelves, but it can be used as a highly decorative piece of furniture. It works well with all interior styles and adds a unique touch to any room.

The Geometric Rug

One fantastic way to add that splash of blue to your living room is with a blue rug. This Be Square Blue rug is fashionable, durable and fun. Place it in the middle of your living room floor for that real wow factor.

Or opt for a sophisticated, elegant rug such as the Plantation Rug Co. Impressions Blue Rug. Complete the look by teaming it with other blue accessories, such as cushions and throws.

If you love blue and want a large space to be devoted to this colour, then why not use blue wallpaper. This could be an accent wall, such as over the fireplace, or if you have a large enough living space, paper the entire room. Blue is such a calming colour. Keep the rest of room fairly neutral and choose a few accessories in a complementary colour to balance the room.

Extreme Lounging Bean Bag

Bean bags are not just for the kids. Bean bags provide a fun way in which to relax and read a good book, or to simply lie back and listen to music. A blue beanbag, such as the Mighty-B will quickly add that pop of blue to your living room.
