Decorate a Room with Royal Blue

 Blue is my favorite color. My mother always had some part of our home decorated with royal blue. It could be the pillows for the couch, the curtains, or throw rugs, somewhere in the house was the color royal blue. My mother was a master at color coordinating. I'm sure this is why blue is my favorite color.

Some Royal Blue History:

This deep and vivid shade of blue is said to have come from Rode Somerset a small village in England, well known for its millwork. In the 18th century, one of the mills created a robe for Queen Charlotte using a deep blue dye named Royal Blue.

So, the next time you have a bedroom to makeover consider decorating with the color Royal Blue. Then you could have a room fit for a King and Queen.

Decorating a Room with Royal Blue:

Decorating a bedroom or any room in your house with royal blue can be challenging but satisfying. The rich majestic color is associated with power and luxury, making it an ideal choice for a bedroom. 

Consider the mood and style that you want to create in the room. Royal blue will represent the sky and sea and is associated with open spaces to create a calming mood.

It is best to use royal blue as an accent color in contrast with neutral shades such as white, beige, or gray. This will create a sense of balance in the room and allow the royal blue to stand out. 

As an example, our living room curtains are royal blue, the walls are painted antique white, and the furniture and carpet are beige, the television stand and table are dark mahogany. This creates a sense of balance and harmony in the room allowing the royal blue to stand out and make a statement.

I'm certainly not an expert at interior decorating, my mother was very good at matching colors and I have my wife Fran to thank for decorating our living room.

With these tips in mind, you can create a beautiful and sophisticated room with the color royal blue as its centerpiece.

  1. I've always liked the color Royal Blue. It is one of my favorite colors to craft with in yarn. So it was really interesting to learn the background of the name for this color. I really like your Royal blue examples here for decorating a room.

  2. Blue is also my favorite color. I do love the way royal blue stands out and claims your attention, but I did not know it origin. I found that very interesting. I am also not a decorator, but I know what is pleasing to my eye and I decorate according to my preferences. I used an interior decorator 25 years ago. After a very short time of living with her color recommendations, I found they didn't really appeal to me or my husband. We changed them all within a few years. We should all decorate our homes in the colors we find relaxing, inviting, and preferred.

  3. Blue is my favorite color, too, and royal blue is one of my favorite shades of blue. I tend to wear it more than decorate with it, but it’s definitely a striking choice for home decor.

  4. Love these royal blue examples you show and thank you for the history lesson. Very interesting.

  5. Sam a well coordinated blue themed room can be gorgeous - It's a relaxing cool color and I think it's especially ideal in warmer climates - love that blue bedding set too

  6. I never used to use blue in home decor, but recently have started incorporating it in small touches and it really works well! I agree its best to use Royal blue as an accent colour with whites, greys or creams, it can look so gorgeous.
