Blue living room color schemes

Set the right mood and personality for the heart of your home, and also put your guests at ease by painting/decorating it Blue.

The living room, often known as the family room, is the first space you encounter when you enter your home. While it is a personal space where you enjoy good times with your family, indulge in friendly conversations and make countless memories, it is also a social space. Here is where you entertain your occasional guests as well. Hence, your living room interiors must reflect your personality.

And colour scheme is as important as overall design and decor, something that is often overlooked. Speaking in the context of the living room’s colour, blue can be considered as an ideal color family since it has so many shades to suit every style, and mood you wish to evoke. It has the ability to grab eyeballs, make a statement,  sooth your sense and everything in between. 

Whatever be your style or persona, we have compiled blue living room ideas you can choose from to complete your space.

Tips Before You Paint/Decorate Your Living Room

  • Prepare the room – Be ready with all your stuff, tools and supplies beforehand
  • shift everything nearer to the room’s center to make painting and your decor project easier and hassle-free
  • Test the paint before you actually buy it as the actual colour  may vary from those seen in the shade card and / or in natural light 
  • Visualise the decor according to the existing dimensions and furniture in your living room
  • Mix-n-match and play around with colours in tune with the room’s architecture and your own personality

  • Keep the ceiling white
