From sapphire and yale to royal and perussian, yes I am talking about the different shades of blue. It’s everyone’s favorite color, right? Perhaps no space is better-suited for blue than the bedroom. This calming shade emits tranquility, serenity, and spaciousness that’s reminiscent of the sea and sky. If you can’t wait to add this color to your sleeping space, then take a look at my collection of stunning blue bedroom ideas with pictures to give you some inspiration.
1. Simplicity is the Name of the Game
A blue bedroom with a simplistic design is ideal for minimalist lovers who want to feel relaxed and sleep in peace. This soft blue Nordic-style bedroom is a perfect example of a minimalist design with white and blue bedding, blue wall, and decorative blue vases. The white floor and a matching white dresser type complement the whole look beautifully.
2. Blue in a Modern Bedroom
Speaking of minimalism, contemporary bedrooms are best-suited for this feature. With simple and minimal decor, you can just focus on releasing all your stress. To create a relaxing sleeping space, paint the wall blue as shown here. The striped blue bedding with the white and blue pillows match the wall and emit the feeling of relaxation. As a rule of thumb, always keep bedroom accessories to a minimum in order to enhance the modern feel.
3. Blue in a Rustic-Style Bedroom
In a farmhouse or rustic-style cottage, all that’s needed to create a vintage touch is a blue wall. The vintage decor in this example in the form of wooden bedside tables, lampshades, exposed beams, and wooden windows means you can add a bold shade of blue to bring all the variations together. Since the blue wall stands out on its own, there is no need to add any other blue accents here.
4. Statement Lighting in a Blue Bedroom
In addition to painting a wall in the color blue to make a statement in the bedroom, the right type of lighting can complete the relaxing look. Notice how this attractive bedroom highlights the unique modern lighting that has made a statement. This time, rather than painting the wall blue, the designer has opted for blue and white striped wallpaper.
5. Blue with Lots of Textures
Just looking at a blue bedroom will calm you down and send you into a deep sleep. This cool shade allows us to focus on the furnishings around the room, so it makes sense to add lots of textures in the form of throw blanket, pouf, wall art, and floor covering. The soothing tones and monochrome shapes throughout this modern bedroom make the blue wall both bold and understated.
6. Blue with Velvet
While striking textures are an excellent way to bring modern style to the bold blue bedroom, a subtle shade of blue will work just as well against rich, velvety fabrics. See how this discreet blue bed has caught the eye with its luxurious bedding and patterned curtain. And it’s not just the decorative pillows that complement the bed cover; the wall art also has the same color combination.
7. An Industrial-Style Blue Bedroom
Who said blue bedrooms aren’t flamboyant enough? When you introduce dark blue shades like lapis and admiral, you will give your bedroom its own charm and sparkle. This industrial-style bedroom with its exposed brick wall and wooden panel has provided a contrast to the dark blue wall, matching bedding, and blue curtain. What’s more, the peonies and the floral wall art have unexpectedly softened the dominating blue decor, but admittedly, everything works in harmony.
8. A Floral Bedroom for a Feminine Touch
Everyone loves flowers, so why not add floral decor or multi-color bed covering to complement your blue bedroom. While the only blue you see here is the bedding and the table clock, the refreshing atmosphere of the room encourages a splash of cheerful accents. Just one look at this bedroom and you can tell it’s designed for a lady. The color palette goes perfectly with the blue pillows and bedding, without overwhelming the space.

This bedroom is a classic example of how traditional decor works wonderfully with blue.

In fact, you get a feeling of total serenity in this inviting bedroom thanks to the variety of rich tones that are used together with teal.
