Lovely Tranquil Blue Bedroom Inspirations

Inspiring Blue Bedrooms With Romantic Style

I love Rachel Ashwell’s take on romantic blue bedrooms since she takes such a laid back, California-inspired approach with a very light hand.

Shabby Chic – Traditional blue bedrooms to inspire your own schemes.

But there are infinite ways to interpret romantic style.

Cathy Kincaid’s blue accented bedroom (above) in her own traditional-infused home is packed with bespoke pretty details.

Seen Cathy’s house tour? Even if you have seen it before, it’s never a waste of time! Once you take in all of the timelessness and her refined taste, it’s easy to see why her work is in demand:

Considering all of the patterns and prints and mixing of textiles, does the result feel too busy to you? We’re all so different, and living with color and pattern is a subjective matter.

Mark Sikes mixed patterns delightfully in a bedroom with simple white slipcovers on a pair of antique mahogany twin beds. Wallcovering: Sister Parish.

Personally, I’m more of a subdued bedroom fan. If you’re somewhere in between, here’s an example of a traditional approach with a modern twist:

Isn’t that a clever mix of patterns that feels contemporary?

Ai Designed Tranquil Blue Bedroom

Are you seeing more Ai designs in your social feeds? People are a bit divided on the usefulness, but I think images can be a wonderful way to launch design discussions and consider combinations of colors and materials.

Ai designed tranquil blue bedroom - @farmhouseliving. #bluebedrooms
Ai designed bedroom by Farmhouse Living

I especially loved the Ai-designed kitchen Farmhouse Living shared with the tour which included the bedroom above. It has inspired lots of my FB followers:

Aren’t those blue backsplash tiles behind the range amazing and inspiring?

Blue Bedroom Details From Favorite Designers

A designer I associate with the best blues? Suzanne Kasler! She chooses the most elegant pale china blues! Notice how she accented this nook for the bed with a gorgeous blue-grey:

Interior Design: Suzanne Kasler; Architect: Les Cole

Shannon Bowers is a favorite designer of mine who used blue beautifully on an elegant bed:

Are soft silvery blues or aquas more your style? This silvery blue grasscloth, gingham, and coastal style in this Tristan Harstan Southeastern Showhouse bedroom was unforgettable. (Has it truly been seven years since this Southeastern Designer Showhouse captured my imagination?)

Not sure I could peel myself away from this retreat of a bedroom!

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 cheerful is this coastal, fresh Tom Scheerer designed traditional bedroom?

Blue bedrooms are perfect for coastal design fans! Are you a coastal grandmother?

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 a la Desiree Bastian in her former Utah cottage:

But which blue-grey color? Here is some helpful info. And let’s check out 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 newish paint color Headspace (above) from Clare caught my eye, and I am a huge fan! Wouldn’t it be amazing on a ceiling?

Consider This Romantic Bedding

This color “Shore” is beautiful, and the quality from Boll & Branch will win you over:
