The living room is kind of like the heart of a home. It’s where everyone gathers after a long day and entertains on the weekends and holidays. Deciding on a color palette for this space is rooted in how you want to feel when you are spending time in it. For many, they want something that is relaxing and family friendly. That makes blue a perfect option for many.
Blue is one of my favorite colors to work with because it is so versatile. It’s gender-neutral and has an elegant, relaxing vibe that everyone naturally responds to. To take its versatility a step further, the hue and tone that you choose can say a lot. A deep, vibrant blue will be dramatic while a soft, subdued blue will be serene and tranquil. It’s all in the mood you want to capture.
To show the incredible range of the color, here are several blue living room ideas that are all different but beautiful in their own way.
