When furnishing the living area it is very important to combine the colors of the walls with the furniture. Bright colors in the furniture mean more neutral choices for the living room walls. On the contrary, in the presence of furnishings with neutral shades, the color of the furniture and accessories can be more contrasting.
This explains why even the apparently dark blue color can coexist well in the living area.
Furthermore, the blue color can be interpreted in many shades: from the brightest and most intense, similar to the color of the deep sea, to the variants closest to green, such as the modern petrol blue.
Blue is one of the most relaxing colors and therefore ideal if you want to interpret your living area as a reassuring and calm environment.
IN ALL THESE CASES, OUR ADVICE REMAINS FOCUSED ON CHOOSING THE CORRECT SOFA-WALL COLOR COMBINATION.
Let’s see together some possible combinations of living room/wall with a blue sofa. Pair of sofas in blue fabric consisting of three-seater sofa and two-seater sofa with extendable seat.
Blue and white, a perfect union
Two colors that combined together, alone are enough to remind us of the sea and the white walls of Mediterranean houses. Blue in the most intense color can have duller shades (like this very long linear sofa ) or more electric. In this second case, the contrast with the white of the environment becomes brighter. As anticipated at the beginning, to recall the fresh marine tones, a blue sofa fits well in an environment with neutral and very delicate tones.
Mistakes to avoid?
With these combinations of tones, even the accessories and other furnishings in the living room must coordinate in the lightest colors possible (preferably white). Avoid woods with dark essences that with blue would postpone a too oppressive result.
The blue sofa is perfect for a more traditional living room
Blue is a color that gives elegance. It is no coincidence that even in fashion, dark blue dresses are always to be preferred in case of formal appointments. How can we forget the incomparable Blu Armani, an expression of timeless elegance?
Blue is therefore a perfect color even for a more classic living room. The latest trends also see the return of the velvet fabric sofa. It is precisely the blue tones that most highlight the brightness and softness of the velvet.
The living room is young with a petrol blue sofa
But blue can also be suitable for a young sofa. It’s just a question of tone! Like petrol blue, a very bright color that combined with modern patterns can also cover the sofa of a fresh and youthful home. The secret to making the blue sofa even more beautiful?
