Blue Wallpaper: The Guide

While all colours go in and out of fashion depending on trend cycles, the undeniable popularity of blue wallpapers remains a constant in the arsenal of interior designers and decorators. This can be partly explained by the versatility of the colour blue, as the calming effect of lighter shades of blue make it ideal for lounges and bedrooms, while darker, deeper hues, especially when combined with other pattern colours, help to create a bold and striking impact that is a great fit for kitchens, living rooms, or as a feature wall. The many positive properties of blue wall décor are strongly connected to nature, where the sky meets the sea. These characteristics can create a whimsical atmosphere that is a great motivator in work areas as well as a cheery mood lifter in relaxation areas.

Which benefits can blue wall décor bring to a room?

Always ranked as one if not THE most popular colour, blue has many positive associations and can create spaces that are both calming and productive.

The association with trust and positivity is great for offices and workspaces

It’s a well-known fact that blue is a positive colour that can support a calming and balanced atmosphere in offices and workspaces. Experts in colour psychology highlight how different shades of blue can help improve concentration, stimulate clear thinking, and boost productivity, keeping us focused on the task at hand. For the best results, choose lighter tones and/or restrict it to just a single feature wall.

Blue promotes relaxation and calmness

The colour blue is often considered the right hue for achieving relaxation and promote mental health. Its close association with the vastness of sea and sky lets our brain feel roam freely and makes us feel less constrained by the closed indoor spaces we spend most of our lives in. It has substantial positive effects on both our mental and physical well-being, especially in its paler varieties.

Blue is a regal colour that adds elegance and sophistication to a room

Blue has long been associated with nobility and is seen in many cultures as a symbol of wealth, power, and prestige. This has historical reasons, as in the Middle Ages blue was a difficult colour to produce, since the pigment used to make it could only be sourced from expensive lapis lazuli stones. As a result, only the wealthy could afford clothing in this colour.

What are the most popular colour variations of blue wallpapers?

There is an almost infinite number of shades of blue to choose from, as many as those of the ocean or the sky. When it comes to interior design, the most popular hues tend to be light or dark blue as well as aqua and turquoise.

Light blue

Light blue, in its many variations from duck-egg blue to cyan blue, is a popular shade frequently used by interior designers looking to bring a sense of openness and airiness to a space. A relaxing and positive colour, it can be used on its own for cheerful children’s rooms, or paired with brighter colours, like yellow, to create modern and vibrant looks.

Aqua blue

Who doesn’t dream of leaving behind the dull and repetitive greyness of urban life and jump into the emerald waters of a tropical paradise? The colour of the warm sea in all its variations, from aqua blue to marine blue, brings instant happiness and is therefore often used as an accent hue to brighten rooms that might be in need of a pop of colour, from a playroom to a space with little direct sun light.

Turquoise blue

A blend of green and blue, this colour originates from the exotic lands of Iran and Afghanistan. It takes its name from the gem sourced in the ancient mines of Khorasan. It’s a hue that has strong spiritual associations, with many cultures considering it a harbinger of good fortune. It exudes a cheerful vibe that adds confidence and positivity to the room.

Dark Blue

Dark blue, a deep shade of blue not to be confused with navy blue, is a colour associated with authority, luxury, and power. In all its variations, from indigo to royal blue or cobalt, a dark blue wallpaper provides the room with a sense of aristocratic coolness. Its calming and relaxing qualities make it an ideal candidate for private rooms bathed in plenty of sunlight.

Which rooms benefit the most from the calming properties of blue wallpaper?

Combining calming properties with a mood and productivity boost, blue wall décor is ideally suited for a busy study or office, a sophisticated living room, or a bedroom where to unwind and relax.

Study, home office

Long considered an afterthought until the pandemic forced many of us to create a more permanent work area in our homes, studies and home offices are now almost a standard fixture of the family home. Blue wall décor, particularly in a pale tonality, is an excellent choice to maximise productivity and avoid distractions during working hours.

Bedroom

Due to its ability to reduce anxiety and promote calmness, a wallpaper featuring blue as the main colour is a very helpful tool to unwind after a long day and to get a good night’s sleep. Choosing the right shade of blue depends on whether we are night owls, who might prefer a darker blue, or morning persons, who benefit more from lighter tonalities.

Living Room

The innate versatility of blue is the perfect match for a multifaceted space like the living room. Those seeking a dramatic and sophisticated, yet cocooning effect can opt for darker, almost inky shades of blue, adding a luxurious backdrop to elegant furniture. If the goal is to create a peaceful and invigorating oasis, a wallpaper in an uplifting shade of pale blue will bring serenity while providing a sense of light and space.

Which colour combinations work best with blue?

Depending on the hue picked, blue can be paired with white to define understated and cosy spaces, or with silver and gold to set the stage for statement rooms or create a stunning backdrop for art and classic furniture.

Blue and Silver

A naturally elegant and sophisticated colour combination, wall décor mixing the coolness of silver with the relaxing properties of blue is the perfect backdrop for modern and chic living rooms that are both timeless and elegantly understated. The on-trend effects of silver accents can be maximised by combining them with silver-framed paintings and metallic accessories to create a cohesive look.

Blue and White

Featuring in countless patterns, from geometric to striped, wallpapers mixing blue and white define a clean and classic look that fits traditional maritime as well as country style interior design concepts. Often chosen for bathrooms as well as for kitchens and children's rooms, this type of wall décor is a perfect pairing for wooden floors and furniture.

Blue and Gold

Providing the ideal backdrop for gold to unleash its mesmerising effect, darker shades of blue provide a canvas that exudes elegance and sophistication, adding a touch of glamour to any room. Beautifully complementing each other, blue and gold wallpapers are ideally suited for elegant dining rooms as well as representative spaces.
