Neutral Blue Color To Level Up The Elegance

Each time we think of the colour blue, it reminds us of cool climes and the vast expanse of the sea. However, a neutral shade of blue can bring in a touch of elegance to any room and anything you put it on. Like here, in this setup, you can see neutral blue literally everywhere! Furniture, ceilings, and upholster have all been matched in a unified colour scheme.. If you feel that this shade is not something you want everywhere in your home, you can paint this on the feature or main wall and balance it with white paint colour. Or you can also go a shade lighter and use it all over your bedroom. This shade of blue can blend in easily with both bold and light accents or decor pieces by creating a neutral background for a cohesive and balanced design.

If you love the idea of incorporating a neutral colour scheme into your home and your walls, we suggest you also consider adding soft lights like cove lights, spotlights and pendant lights along with delicate accents and fabrics for a cohesive look. 

Or you can ditch the normal and go extreme with bold and loud decor, lights, furniture, fabrics and textures and balance it all by painting your walls in a neutral colour. This will help tone down the loud look with a subtle and elegant backdrop. We hope this makes you pick the right colour for your dream home.

Happy Colouring!
