18 Gorgeous ways to add blue walls to your home

Blue is an effortlessly cool colour — in a home, it can look punchy, calm, or neutral, depending on which shade you choose. Why is blue so popular? It's not only the colour of the sky and the ocean, it's also a soothing colour that can calm our nerves. When we see blue, we're transported. And incorporating blue as a colour in your home can be a fun way to add a relaxing touch to your interior design. Blue is a classic choice for walls and with good reason — who wouldn't want to feel zen in their home just by gazing at the wall?

So if you're ready to take on shades of baby blue, cerulean, navy, or royal blue in your home, then let's take a look at the best ideas for blue walls.

1. Ocean blue: If you want wow-factor in any room, choose a dark ocean blue. This shade provides the perfect backdrop for the art and unique furniture pieces in this living room.

6. Aquamarine accent: For a more vibrant pop of colour, aquamarine is a great choice as an accent wall. Since it's so stark, it might be a shade better suited to beach houses or homes near the sea with seaside-style furniture.
