Moody Blue Bedroom

in Bedroom

The latest interior design trend for bedrooms is blue and white bedroom furniture, if you have your ears and eyes open to the world of interiors you can’t have failed to have noticed the range of blue tones to choose from.  In fact to get an idea of this design style, you just need to imagine blue and white china, think willow pattern and you won’t go far wrong for a colour scheme. Using this colour scheme can bring in an air of sophistication to you home

The key to this scheme, (so that it doesn’t actually look like a cracked china plate) is about the textures. To work with these colours you need strong linens that carry the blue tone you have chosen, plush fabrics such as velvet, not for bed covers, but use them sumptuously on the walls.  It’s all about living decadently and what better way to feel indulgent than in the bedroom.

You need to consider the texture of the bedroom furniture, especially the wardrobes as they take up a large expanse of the room.  With the rich blues, such as indigo blue and bright cobalt there is nothing more striking than white glossy wardrobes set within the richness of the blue.

Think about textures on the floor and maybe consider a more muted tone of your chosen blue for rugs or throws.  If you already have painted floorboards than you could repaint in taupe to add another colour to blend with the palette you have chosen.

Your bedding should have your chosen tone within it, but add dashes of taupe to your pillow cases and don’t forget about your throw, a tactile throw will add depth to the already sumptuous design beginning to emerge.  Use the same thoughts towards cushions for those extra finishing touches.

Apart from the wardrobes, other key pieces of bedroom furniture are side tables and chests of drawers, you can have these matching the white gloss or you could go for mirrored bedroom furniture to reflect the texture and pattern within the room. Also mirrored drawers help with the illusion of more space throughout the room.

The moody blue design trend is sure to be seen for a long time yet, as blue is such a varied colour to work with and can be used in many rooms of the house, not just the bedroom.  Whatever room you choose to pour this rich colour into, you won’t fail to be impressed by it for years to come.
