Many people prefer the color blue, and it is often seen in home decor because of its complementary hues and serene qualities. 

We see deep shades of blue in the ocean, and its softer hues scattered across the sky. Two of our world's natural elements boast this peaceful and calming color, so consider using it to create a nature-inspired feeling in your home. Unlike some other colors, shades of blue blend wonderfully together, so consider spanning the spectrum when you embrace this color scheme.

Blue offers peace and tranquility for the mind, as the body actually does produce calming chemicals when surrounded by this color. This is why blue is often the paint color choice in the bedroom. Your bedroom should be a space in your home where you can escape from the stresses of everyday life and enjoy a relaxing atmosphere. Choose shades of blue that make you feel more comfortable and relaxed, such as are seen in the Blue Topiary Quilt Set, shown left.

Blue for Your Floors

Floor space can be a beautiful focal point of the home if highlighted correctly. Bold blue rug options are just the thing to create the sensation and mood you are looking for. The Portico Cablelock Braided Rug, shown right, can be used indoors or outdoors. The rug's cablelock braid offers a look much like a classic sailing rope, so it lends itself well to nautical decor. It is easy to choose rugs that will make a big impact, especially when they feature a wide array of blue hues, like the Thompson Rug and Oceanview Chenille Oval Rug. For a complementary option, try the Country Gold Round Braided Jute Rug. Its gold and cream colors naturally enhance dark blue tones.

Studies show that people are more productive and positive and think more clearly in a blue room. Adding favorite or favorable imagery to blue items can enhance these qualities anywhere in your home. In the kitchen, a Personalized Wine Chiller, canister or other accessory adds complementing color and functional quality to a counter, island or bar. Boston Common Chair Pads, available in blue, tie a room together. Our Jelly Cupboard & Hutch in a blue finish paints a cheerful touch of azure in your kitchen or dining area and can help complement your favorite accents and dishware.

Blue often has a positive association in people's lives — gazing into someone's blue eyes, enjoying the lovely blue sky on a sunny day or spending a day by the shore. Blue can be a color of expansion, creativity and communication. Blue is comfortable, crisp and cool, like a new pair of  jeans or a delightful breeze. From a distance out in space, our planet Earth looks like a swirling blue and white marble. Let  these beautiful blues inspire you — with the help of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
