Rich shades of blue, like the one featured here, bring mystery and personality into a design. And, paired with white, this color scheme is dynamic and dramatic. Every design element comes together to create a finished look. We can’t help but notice the beauty of the chandelier; especially with its reflection through the mirror.


Soft + Subtle Shades of Blue

More people are deciding to work from home, making offices a must have in many houses. What do you need for your home office? You need a space that allows you to focus, concentrate, and work in relaxation! This office is ideal; the shades of blue are soft and inviting. The only thing we’d change would be the window treatments. Although these roman shades look gorgeous with the design, top down shades are better for office spaces. The sunlight enters across the ceiling, which will help to cut glare and direct sunshine. Daylighting will also keep your energy levels up and your productivity soaring!


The Latest Trend

Do you love reading up on the latest design trends? You may have heard of this one. “The fifth wall” is becoming more and more popular; it takes the traditional white ceiling and gives it a fresh, colorful makeover. This space’s fifth wall is painted the same color as the ceiling. Other options might include painting it a complementary or contrasting shade. Want a whimsical, dramatic style? Bring in wallpaper.

Take Time to Relax

Isn’t this bathroom a dream? We’d all love to have our own at-home spas. Shades of blue create a calming ambiance with their ocean vibes. This aqua color palette works wonderfully for spaces that need a serene environment. And, the skylight allows for natural lighting, as well as privacy. But, what if you want a darker atmosphere? Cover your windows with skylight shades. For even more convenience, add motorization. You can adjust the light at the touch of a button on your remote or smart device. Instant control, so you can sit back and enjoy your spa.

Blue is known for being a serene color, bringing peace and calm to every space, which makes shades of blue great for master bedrooms. You deserve a comfortable environment that will promote sleep!
