The color blue is trending right now—and for good reason. This easy-on-the-eyes color is gender neutral, promotes a sense of calmness and relaxation, and is incredibly versatile. What's even better is that it works with the colors you already have in your home, so incorporating this trend into your decor is a breeze.

A Splash of Color

If you want to add some blue to a space but don't want to commit to (or have the budget for) a large piece, home decor items are a great place to start. They're easy to switch up and work in every room in your home. A throw pillow introduces color and can be used in almost any room, a blue rug can ground a space in soothing blue, and a vase adds the perfect pop of blue to any space.

Azure Accents

An accent piece is a great way to incorporate blue into your decor. A deep blue accent chair with nail head trim will add a touch of sophistication to a space, while a sea foam blue accent chest can contribute to a soothing ambiance. A blue and white geometric pattern on an accent chair will lend a touch of crisp, modern style to a space.

Big Blue Impact

If you want to dive into the deep end and make a bold style statement, there's no better way to do so than with a large blue piece, like a sofa or bed. A blue mid-century modern sofa creates a retro-chic vibe in a space, a blue-grey and espresso bed gives a bedroom a unique modern-meets-rustic twist, and a navy leather sofa with nail head trim adds a touch of class to a room.

A Sea of Shades

One of the great things about working blue into your decor is that there's a blue for every room and every mood, from pale periwinkles and barely-there blues to stunning sapphires and captivating cobalts. A pale blue throw can lend a soothing air to a bedroom, a parsons chair in a velvety ocean blue adds a designer touch to a dining room, and a dark slate blue sofa creates the perfect laid back (yet sophisticated) design in a living room.

While it can be easy to overlook, your entryway is pretty important. It's the first thing guests see when they walk into your home and it's the last thing you pass by on the way out the door—so it needs to be both stylish and functional.
