Finding the right art for your wall can add the perfect finishing touches to your design. But with so many art styles and imagery to choose from, it can be a little overwhelming. Abstract artwork is a popular décor trend that encompasses a wide range of imagery and styles. And although it seems like they would work best in a contemporary styled space, abstracts can add interest, color, and invigorating energy to any design. So whether you have a totally modern space, a traditionally furnished room, or somewhere in between, abstracts can find a way on your wall!
Abstract art can give a contemporary and eclectic space some bold and dramatic flair. A large-scale piece will create a beautiful statement in your room and draw your eyes to your wall. Abstract imagery is also a great way to add a pop of color, and it can complement different textures and patterns to complete a maximalist design style.
Opposites attract with modern abstract art and traditional furnishings! If you have a neutral and traditional space, a colorful abstract painting can create an eye-catching focal point or a neutral abstract can add interest to a monochromatic look. No matter the size, abstract artwork can help tie in the different colors of your room as “classic” meets “contemporary. Even just changing out the artwork on your wall can freshen up your space, and contemporary artwork can enhance your existing traditional furnishings.
As more spaces blend modern and timeless elements, these popular transitional styles can reflect individuality and personal touches in the design! Whether you gravitate towards minimalist and neutral spaces or maximalist and bold design, hanging abstract artwork can be the perfect way to complete your transitional space. From encaustic art to acrylic paint on canvas, and from abstract photography to mixed media pieces, you are sure to find the perfect abstract for your wall!
Blue is a classic color trend that is always in style, and one that we love! With so many shades to choose from, it can be easy to incorporate some blue hues in any design style. Light and pale shades are perfect for a neutral space or coastal design, and deeper blue hues can add some dramatic flair to your space. A cool blue will encourage rest and activate your zen, which makes it great to use in a bedroom or any space you want to relax.
Light & Neutral
Using pale blue tones, especially in a neutral room, can create calming, coastal vibes. Soft and lighter tones can ignite comfort and are perfect for a space where you want to unwind and unplug. Painting your wall(s) a pale blue will help keep your space light and fresh, while still infusing it with some color and personality. Adding blue décor pieces can bring cool, serene elements to a neutral room. Blue shades can pair easily with cool gray spaces or warm accents, it’s just a matter of finding the right shade of blue to work in your room!
Deep Hues & Bold Prints
Because blue is such a classic color, it is perfect for a statement print or pattern. Try a chic geometric pattern on your walls, some floral prints on your upholstery, or stripes on a rug. Adding darker blue hues to your space can create a striking statement, and it doesn’t have to require any paint. A bold sapphire couch or a large-scale navy art piece can create a dramatic focal point in your room. And with the timeless color combination of blue and white, using a deep blue can provide the perfect stylized contrast in your space. Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with your blue!
The Best Rooms for Blue
Being such a soothing color, shades of blue are often used in living rooms, bedrooms, or spaces you want to create a zen atmosphere. Cooler blue shades, such as ice blue and cobalt, will help encourage rest, which is why bedrooms are one of the most popular spaces to design with blue in your color palette. Blues with warmer red undertones, like denim blue or slate blue, create a cozy, inviting space and are great for more social spaces such as living rooms or kitchens.
Blue’s versatility makes it an easy one to incorporate in your color palette, in any design style or room. Whether you cover your walls in a blue hue or decorate with blue accent pieces, this color trend will always look fresh and timeless. And with summer on the way, a cool blue can be the perfect addition to any room!
