We haven't had much sunlight over this long winter which makes everything feel kind of dreary. Paired with gray, it's a color combination that is timeless and works beautifully in any space. As a wall color, blue is one of those bold shades that you find you either love or hate over time.
Do you want to treat blue as the focal point in your master bedroom, or as more of an accent color? The dark blue color and bold block print pattern really draw your eye in. We've had to place our large upholstered bed in front of the window which is not ideal, so having an eye-catching pillow is a great way to detract from the headboard.
The gorgeous blue, white and grey duvet cover was a recent birthday present from my husband and I couldn't love it more. The duvet is also large and noticeable so it really sets the tone for the room's color palette.
The beige and grey tones in the wallpaper also blend in with the rest of the room and make the space feel cohesive.
Sticking to grey-toned furniture also helps to create a calm and peaceful space. The side tables and bed frame feature a subtle grey wash. On the other side of the room, a dark charcoal grey pinstripe bench provides a spot for sitting (or piling clothes, ha!).
You can opt for inexpensive window coverings but when you decorate with custom shades or drapes, you really enhance the sophistication of your room. The mix of darker and lighter shades of grey in a plaid pattern is timeless and versatile; I can easily reuse these curtains in a different room. Given that we previously had a rug here in mostly light and dark gray colors, I didn't think changing it would make a big difference.
This gorgeous oriental style rug from the Amber Interiors x Loloi collection adds a liveliness to this room and is an excellent choice for grounding the blue and grey color scheme.
The color combo of blues, greys, ivory, and a hint of coppery red tie in with the wood furniture and other accents. In this room, I have an oriental rug, toile, stripes, block print and plaids, all working together.
By varying the scale of the patterns and mixing different tones of blue and grey, you create a pleasing decorating style. Apart from the blue and grey bedding and furnishings, you'll notice that the rest of my accessories are mostly black or white. From the white table lamps, to the topiaries in black pots and the neutral art on the walls, the rest of the room recedes into the background.
This subtle approach makes this white bedroom feel blue and grey.
