There are some color combinations that never go out of style and look as relevant today as they did several decades ago. The classic duo of yellow and blue fits this billing perfectly, as this is a color scheme that seems to blend in with a wide variety of styles and works equally well in both large and small spaces. It is barely a wonder that kids’ rooms draped in blue and yellow look absolutely fabulous when done right. Part of nature’s vibrant canopy, this pairing reminds us of the clear sky on a lovely day, a field of sunflowers at dawn or even a dreamy beach setting at dusk; yellow and blue blend refreshing brightness with soothing charm!
While finding a balance between yellow and blue in the kids’ bedroom is not too hard, most homeowners seem to be far more comfortable with blue as the dominant hue in the room. This could very well be because of the popularity of blue in boys’ bedrooms or just the fact that brighter shades of yellow create a setting that is far too ‘vibrant and loud’ for a relaxing bedroom. Irrespective of the reason behind the choice, those wanting to drape the bedroom of their child in light and pastel hues of blue can still add a striking splash of yellow with accents and decor.
It is white and blue that traditionally ushers in the magic of sun, sand and surf into your bedroom. But go down a different route this summer and replace the white in that equation with far more exciting shades of gray. Apart from giving your nautical or coastal style bedroom a fresh, new look, replacing white with gray gives you greater decorating freedom and a chance to try out newer shades of blue. In fact, you can fill the backdrop with light gray and maybe even a hint of white and use pops of teal, turquoise or periwinkle for greater visual impact. From bedding and drapes to a complete bedroom furniture set in blue, a gray background lets you switch between hues with ease.
