Blue Shabby Chic

A bland apartment space can be transformed easily into a cozy blue Shabby Chic haven with a few touches from this popular country design line. The color blue is both soothing, relaxing and promotes rejuvenation in the human spirit, especially when the blue is in the softest of pale shades. Bedroom image via Interior Fans.com

The antique appeal of Shabby Chic furniture and the roughed up finish of this pale blue sink chest and medicine cabinet are perfection in this style of decor. To make it more shabby and chic? Add odd finds from flea markets, like jars, old glassware or china to complete the look. These items can be functional as well for storage or soap containers. Image via Home and Decor.

Adding a heavily quilted and pillowed daybed to any room give an instant seating space or a great place to curl up and read a book or take a nap. Love the mix of blue colors here. Via Coastal Living.

Decor with Denim

I’ve been curious about decor with denim for a while now. I especially love walls that look like jean material…is that done with paint or wallpaper? The shade of denim are endless, and if you’re going blue with your room interior design, adding some denim appeal give it a nice casual, yet crisp feel. Above pic via Ralph Lauren.

If you  don’t want to hassle with wallpaper, denim wall can be created relatively easily with paint, and a nifty wall paper brush. After picking your desired shade of denim roll it on the wall. Immediately after rolling, while paint is still quite wet, take the wall paper brush and stroke horizontally, then brush vertically to create the neat cross-hatched pattern that is recognized in denim jeans. A do-it-yourself idea that’s so simple I think I can even do this!

Here are some more denim decor ideas. Enjoy!

Dare to go dramatically denim blue in your kitchen? There are some perks to it. According to color theories, adding blue in your kitchen actually reduces your appetite, thus making dieting easier. (Reds and oranges enhance appetite).

Denim and white in the bedroom is fresh and lovely and give a cool feel in summer months.
