Looking to design a blue bedroom space that is devilishly serene? Pick an offbeat shade of blue, like the Steel Blue you see here, to cover your walls with and see your bedroom transform into a pool of tranquility. The light gray of the curtains and sofa, serene whites of the frames and pillows paired with the other shades of blue scattered around in the room help design a cohesive space that anyone would love to stay in.

2. Pair Your Desired Shade of Blue With Other Neutral Colors

Blue and white is a classic color combo for a reason. But that does not mean you cannot pair blue with other neutral colors like light beige and off-white. When designed intelligently, such spaces look equally good and give off a warm summer vibe all year round. And if you have ample sunlight coming in through the windows, or like in this case through the balcony, even better. Ensure to pick furniture pieces in lighter colors to amplify the blue shade and you will have a cozy bedroom space for yourself.

3. Layer Different Shades of Blue

When designing a blue bedroom space, there can be no such thing as ‘too much blue’. So if you can’t decide which shade of blue to pick, layer them! How, you ask? Through your furnishings. Pick a fabric headboard in a dark blue shade to set the backdrop and layer all your favorite shades of blue through your pillow covers, blanket, and throws. 

4. Accentuate With A Midnight Blue Bed Back Wall

If you prefer a bit of drama but would like to avoid bright blues, take a cue from this bedroom and consider a Midnight Blue bedroom accent wall. This slightly moody feel provides the perfect backdrop for special touches like the unique black and white tiled flooring and bright yellow wall cabinets you can see in the image above. When choosing the furnishings, ensure to pick colors that will allow the dark blue accent wall to be the center of attention in the room.

Designing a blue bedroom does not necessarily mean having blue walls all around. You can also achieve it by incorporating the color through the different elements that make a room whole. Take inspiration from this bedroom design where the designers have incorporated the color blue in the room through the flooring, furniture, decor, and furnishings and set it against a white backdrop to make the accent color stand out. Isn’t that interesting? The only thing one needs to ensure while carrying this out is to set it against a light-colored backdrop so your bedroom has a blue look and feel to it. 

9. Set A Cool Tone With Blue Furnishings

If you’re not eager on integrating blue elements into the different aspects of your bedroom, you can also opt only for blue furnishings. Opting for blue-colored sofa seats, bench seats, throws, and pillows can also help you design a lovely blue bedroom space at a minimal effort and expense. This is also a great choice if you’re looking to renovate your bedroom under a budget

Pro tip: If you’re looking to achieve a luxurious look and feel, opt for velvet furnishings, and don’t forget to declutter your room and hide all the unnecessary items.

10. Keep It Simple With A Clean Blue Wall

Not keen on investing much thought, effort, or money but are keen on designing a blue bedroom space? Opt for a blue bedroom wall, pair it with white furnishings and wooden accents and see your bedroom light up. And if you have ample sunlight coming into your room, even better. During the day, you can enjoy a warm beachy vibe while at night the bedroom can turn into a safe haven for you to relax and unwind at the end of a tiring day. If a plain blue wall seems pale to you, accentuate it with unique wall decor or lights.

A great way to make your blue bedroom design pop is by accentuating it with other bright colors like orange and yellow. The vibrant colors provide a hot contrast to the coolness provided by the blue color, adding lots of drama to the room. If you’re bored of playing it safe with your decor, this is a surefire way to stir things up by quite some notches.

Looking to integrate multiple shades of blue into your bedroom design, but fear you will clash or do it wrong? Then choose analogous shades of blue, i.e., colors that sit beside each other on the color wheel and you will surely have great results. If you love a bold wall, then opt for one in a darker shade of blue and incorporate the lighter shades in the furnishings. Ensure to make full use of the natural sunlight coming into your room to achieve an even cozier look and feel.

14. Extend The Color To The Floor And Pair It With Dark Wood Tones

Why just limit yourself to a blue wall when you can have a blue floor too? Break free from the conventional limits and experiment with this bright color by opting for a blue floor to go with your blue wall. Pair this with dark wood tones and other dark colors to make a bold statement with your bedroom design

15. Opt For A Classical Design But With A Twist

If you cannot decide on one style of decor, why not mix things up? If you love the classical themed homes along with plenty of patterns, this tip is for you. Fabricate your walls with blue classical panels and pick furnishings that have colorful prints and designs on them and you will have successfully designed an eclectic bedroom space. Add the final touch with some metallic accents, say through lampshades or fixtures or a velvet pillow or throw and see your bedroom turn into the most happening space of your home. 

Blue is a versatile color that can complement almost every decor scheme when styled well (there’s a reason why blue jeans are so popular – they go with everything!). Whether you’re looking to go all out with a splashy royal blue paint or add in some understated accents, there’s always something for you.
