Set A Fresh And Serene Ambiance With A Blue Couch Focal Point

The color palette is very important when decorating a space. Each color has a different impact on our mood and on the ambiance created in the room. Blue, for example, is a calm and serene color that helps relax and better concentrate. This makes it a great candidate for areas such as the bedroom or the office. Blue is also the color associated with the clear sky and with water and this also makes it a good option for bathrooms.

Different shades of blue have different influences on their surroundings. For example, pale and pastel blues make the rooms feel larger and they also establish a very tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. Darker shades of blue, on the other hand, are more dramatic and they fill the room with energy. A navy blue couch, for instance, has the right color for a focal point and it can look very glamorous and luxurious in the right setting.

A bunch of colors go well with blue. For instance, add a few little golden accents to a navy blue decor so create a sophisticated and elegant combo. A blue couch, for example, can feature gold-finished metal feet or it can stand next to a coffee table finished in this color. You can also pair blue with silver, chrome or copper elements for a similar effect.

Even though it’s a cool color, blue can actually be very comforting, especially on a sofa

Although it’s true that blue is a color best suited for bedrooms, bathrooms and offices from a mood point of view, this doesn’t make it unfit for other spaces. A blue living room decor, for example, can be ideal for family homes. It would feel fresh and relaxing but it would also offer a sense of strength and safety.

Shades of brown or beige can tone down the vibrant tone of a blue sofa

Since the sofa is generally the focal point of the living room, you can use it as a source of color, although it’s not mandatory for the color to the bold and vibrant in order to impact the room in a big way. A grey sofa can turn out to be just what a living room needs in order to look balanced and welcoming. The complexity of the decor involves a lot more than the sofa or couch so you have to look at the big picture and to take into consideration all the factors.
