One of my favorite colors with which to decorate is blue. In home staging, we use blue as an accent a lot because of how universally loved it is. Most people, regardless of gender, respond positively to the color blue because of its role in nature, calming effect, and ability to suit an array of styles. Blue bedrooms are particularly popular because of how relaxing the color is.
Within the color blue, there are myriad shades and tones to choose from. A dark blue bedroom, for example, will have a rich, luxurious quality, while a bedroom in a lighter blue will feel softer and airier. The textures and patterns you pair it with will also affect how the blue comes across in the room. It makes the color perfect for a shared, gender-neutral space.
Here are 10 examples of blue bedrooms to give you a wide variety of ideas and inspiration.
