These Rooms Have Us Singing The Blues

by Jonathan Steinitz July 27, 2016

It’s no secret that we love a bold blue room. With so many shades available from serenity to midnight, blue is one of the most versatile hues for interiors. There is no specific color code you need to follow: the entire blue spectrum works together, so mixing blue tones is a great way to add depth to a space while keeping the color story classic and connected.

Get ready to sing the Consort blues: sometimes they’re deep and soulful, more often they’re edgy and modern, but most importantly, they never go out of style.

Scroll for a selection of our favorite blue rooms we’ve designed.

Dark blue walls create instant old-world character in a room. In Jessica Alba’s guest house, we dabbled in different shades of blue throughout the hotel-inspired home, landing on a dramatic dark blue-grey for matching walls and pool table in this parlor space.

We went all-in for vintage vibes and a sense of masculine mystery with our social saloon design at the Greystone Mansion. The midnight blue walls amplify the cool factor this suave Italian-modern-inspired speakeasy. Dark and stormy, anyone?

Royal Treatment

Sometimes a room deserves a royal treatment. Deeper hues of royal blue and indigo looks oh-so-chic in just about any space, so we couldn’t resist incorporating dark blue as a key color throughout our Melrose shop.

Deep blues can appear more vibrant when complemented by bold warm hues, which is why we chose orange and red accents for this reading nook.

We love to add rhythm to our blues with pattern and texture mixing. Blue and white have never been more right than in our beachy classic Pacific Palisades project, where pattern play added a youthful touch to the kids’ room. The wallpaper sets the tone of a fun-filled space for creativity and happy living.

The mix of blue textures and patterns keeps this nook in Ben McKenzie’s Hollywood home feeling casual and collected. We kept a tight color story so that we could layer eclectic pillows, throws, and wallpaper in a cohesive way.

Pale blue cabinets add a light, feminine touch to our kitchen design for Nina Dobrev’s WeHo bungalow. The serene shade provides a calming color effect against graphic pattern tiles and shiny copper hardware for an overall bright, bold, and balanced appeal.
