Create a peaceful atmosphere using blue and neutrals

Blue is most commonly associated with feelings of peacefulness and tranquility. Bring these calming sensations into your personal sanctuary by pairing blue with neutrals in a few different ways.

1. Use blue as an accent colour. If you lean towards a room dominated by neutrals like white or beige, lighter blues are a gentle way to introduce a little colour.

2. Complement darker blues with dusky neutrals. For softer and calmer contrast, go for slightly deeper shades like grey when pairing with dark blues.

3. Layer different shades of blue with neutrals for a put-together look. The tonal variation keeps things interesting, while the monochromatic effect appears both thoughtful and soothing.

Tip: Use deeper blues to ground a colourful palette.

Blues like Slate Blue or Nautical Blue can be great complements in a room full of colour. The blue contributes some colour to the room, while their rich tones and calming nature help to balance brighter shades.

In @hominghumans' room, the deep blues in the Slate Blue sheets in Bamboo Sateen, the decorative pillow, and their artwork play off beautifully with more vibrant colours like the orange curtains and mirror, and the Taro Milk pillowcases in Bamboo Sateen.
