Can you make a blue room cozy?
Painting your walls blue can make your room feel dark and cozy, or light and airy depending on what shade of paint you use. From soft blue that can still give the room a bright look alongside dark furnishings, to dark blue wall paints with ambient lighting to create a super cozy feel.
Our ideas below give you inspiration on many ways to decorate a blue room, including cozy hues and airy colours to make your space your sanctuary.

Decorate a Victorian bedroom in blue for a royal touch. Start with blue walls and incorporate other colours to compliment the space. We love this modern but traditional blue bedroom with antique furnishings that makes the space utterly unique and full of character. Furthermore, adding other nature inspired hues like green and browns will warm up a blue bedroom.
