Feeling Blue? Add Instant Life and Cheer To Your Home
Blue Home Decor Finds!
I’m usually a huge fan of neutral home décor because it’s so versatile, clean, and calming. I really love the warm, earthy colors! BUT, especially in spring and summer, I find myself veering away from my own monochromatic madness. I love to mix it up and pepper in some blue accents wherever I can. I’m feeling blue…but in the best way! Blue is such a happy color and reminds me of the beach (my favorite place!) If you too are a lover of blue, keep scrolling for some home décor finds that will breathe some fresh life into your space.
In case you missed it, you can read all about Erin’ new home and decor, here. And…she’s a fan of neutrals and blues too!
Decorating with Color
A couple of tips for adding color to your living space…try to pick one dominant color.
That color should account for about 60% of your decor.
Next, throw in a secondary color (about 30%).
And lastly, add an accent color. It can take up about 10% of your space.
Do you switch up the colors in your home to go with the seasons or do you keep things pretty much the same year-round? Leave me a note in the comments!

This piece combines two of my favorites - blue and gold. There's a subtle gold foil around each of the capiz shells and the frame is also gold metal. So, this piece has 3-dimension, beachy vibes, and aspects of nature.
The beautiful bench would make a great catch-all for an entryway or placed at the foot of a bed. I linked a slightly smaller version as well. I don't own this exact bench, but the reviews on both are amazing!
These blue agate coasters are stunning! So stunning that they are nearly sold out so I linked another similar set as well. Have you heard of biophilic design? In a nutshell, designers say that adding natural elements to your home like rock, wood, or plants, can improve your overall health and well-being.
This midcentury book pack is SO cool! Each set comes with a dozen books (each pack is unique) all published between 1940-1969. There are 7 other color packs to choose from including a pretty green and a pack called "island" which is various shades of blues + greens.
This beautiful blue, grey, and white rug comes in 6 different sizes and looks very similar to one Erin just purchased for her new home! And...like all Rugable rugs, it's machine washable too which is pretty darn cool.
