Baby blue colour palettes are no longer confined to children’s bedrooms and baby boy’s nurseries. This pale and pleasant colour tone has long been used in period style interior designs and its versatility has transcended time to become one of the hottest contemporary colour choices of 2014.
The chalky hues of this tranquil colour tone look wonderful in a wide range of interior settings and work equally well with traditional and minimal home designs.
Baby blue is a wonderful colour choice as it looks perfectly at home alongside illuminating neutral tones and rich dark hues. It can be teamed with dark mahogany furniture for a period style design or can be partnered with fresh white painted furniture for a perfect summer look. This colour is a key feature in nautical interior designs and creates a perfect laid back setting in bedrooms and living room areas. Baby blue tones look great in a complimentary pastel coloured interior for a tropical look that is bang in trend this summer season. Opt for baby blue, candy pink and orange for a fabulous holiday feel .
Textiles are a perfect way of creating aesthetically pleasing focal points that are easy on the eye as well as providing textural appeal within your interior space. Baby blue curtains, rugs and throws are an ideal way of introducing this colour choice into your interior and are a great way of breathing a breath of fresh air into an otherwise neutral space. Baby blue cushions look great scattered across a sofa or bed area and can be arranged in complementary and contrasting tones and patterns for a muted yet eye-catching ‘zone’ of colour.
Baby blue accessories can be seamlessly added to your current interior colour palette to add a pop of colour within your home. Their light and calming colour will create a tranquil and relaxed atmosphere in any room of your choice. A simple vase, ornament or bowl can transform an otherwise bare table, sideboard or mantelpiece whilst a shimmering and illuminating wall mirror will create a complimentary and calming ambiance that will add a focal point to a pale or dark painted feature wall. Rococo and baroque designs work really well with this colour tone as well as vintage and shabby chic style accessories.
Painted furniture makes a wonderful alternative to the traditional painted feature wall and can create focalised areas of colour within your home interior. This elegant colour works really well on shabby chic furniture items and particulary classic dressers, bedsides and dining tables. Vintage style interiors as well as regency designs look fabulous with the addition of a baby blue painted design. Alternatively if you have chosen a baby blue palette on your walls and floors then opt for rich and dark Hardwood Furniture or lustrous French Chateau White designs that will contrast or compliment the muted tones of the interior.
