The colour blue is said to symbolise many positive qualities, such as trust, loyalty, truth, wisdom, intelligence and confidence, faith and heaven. Blue is thought to be beneficial to the mind and body as it produces a calming effect that is even said to slow human metabolism. If light colours leave you cold, dark blue is associated with stability and depth. With all of this in mind it seems like a pretty great colour choice for a room used for relaxation doesn’t it? We think so too, so we’ve put together thirty of our favourite blue living room decor schemes to help relax your mind, body and soul.

A volume of light blue storage cabinets makes a great divider in this open plan space. Again the blue hue has been warmed by the introduction of soft pink, this time in the form of an area rug. The sweet shades lift the monochrome scheme but are relaxing rather than jarring. | Visualizer: Lugerin Igor.
Is there any colour more restful on the eye than duck egg blue? The calming colour of this bespoke bookcase has been put with a beautiful blush sofa in this pastel coloured lounge. A pink and blue colour combination looks super sweet, but here the cute clash is toned down by the addition of a soft sage accent wall plus deep wood stain. | Visualizer: AM Studio.
A single wall of strong blue is echoed only by one diluted blue cushion on the opposite side. Purple heather cushions and curtains complement the blue tones perfectly, and one vivid chartreuse strip balances the visual weight of the room. The sofa and floor are neutral and light, whilst a dark coffee table, modern rocking chair and a designer table lamp provide the base notes. | Visualizer: Z Axis Design.
In this dark blue living room theme, the shade of the feature wall is copied and continued around the room via an upholstered L-shaped sofa. A bright yellow accent chairs with matching footstool has been introduced to shatter monotony. | Visualizer: Ugo Concept.
A beach theme is hinted at in this living room. Striped chairs that recline low like traditional deck chairs, and a tasseled area rug on a pale floor like a beach rug on pale sands. Blue panels cover a feature wall, reminiscent of a beach hut. The coastal look is reined in and given a modern edge with the introduction of black metal coffee tables and unique wall shelves. | 4 |.
Another dark blue decor scheme but this time with a slightly pop art inspired feel due to high contrast sunshine yellow accents and graphic prints on cushions, artwork and a geo rug that dazzles through the glass top of a mid century modern coffee table. | Photographer: Photovisions.
If dark and sumptuous opulence is more your style, then this dark blue lounge scheme with a plum coloured sofa and yellow ochre cushions is sure to inspire. Bronze accents and colourful wall art complete the decadent decor. | Designer: Charlotte Crosland Interiors.
This pure sky blue paint colour has got to be one of the most relaxing of all. Teamed with white adjacent walls, floor and furniture the look is kept fresh and uncomplicated. The introduction of green from indoor plants acts as a subtle splash of contrast against the hue. Black accents brought in via a console unit, cushions and nesting coffee tables add just enough weight to the light scheme. | Source: Hukla.
