Inspiring Blue Bedrooms With Romantic Style

We have to start with the Cathy Kincaid designed bedroom(above) in her own blue-filled home.

Canopy Beds & Fabric Panels

There’s something utterly romantic, classic, traditional, and timeless about canopy beds! And curtains on a bed…what a dream. Have you ever had a bed dressed with fabric panels like this?

How freshly modern does this Tom Scheerer designed traditional bedroom feel?

Statement Doors in the Bedroom

So many folks emailed me after seeing this gorgeous duck egg blue barn door in Brit Jones’ former bedroom:

My friend Colleen, owner of Swede Collection offers elegant custom sliding doors that only appear to be authentic antiques. Look at this silvery blue-grey door from them:

Just a Touch of Blue

If you’re more of a neutral color palette person, bear in mind even a mere touch of aqua can feel just right:

You can also skip blue walls and opt for silvery blue-grey trim like Desiree Ashworth did in her former Utah cottage:

Here’s another calm bedroom with that irresistible trim:

Wallpaper & Classic Resources for a Bedroom

There are so many lovely wallpaper patterns to fall in love with, and what charm they bring to rooms lacking architectural interest, character or a view of a lighthouse!

Embrace Soothing Blue for a Bedroom

But which blue?

This new paint color Headspace (above) from Clare caught my eye, and I am a huge fan! Wouldn’t it be amazing on a ceiling?
