Pantone’s Color of the Year was announced about a week ago, and ever since we’ve been reflecting on ways to incorporate Classic Blue into our interior design mood boards. From tiny accents to statement pieces, here are some ways to incorporate cool blues into your apartment decor.

Make a Statement

Are you in need of a new couch? Perhaps an armchair? We’re loving this blue velvet sofa from Wayfair. It offers a subdued hue that adds a pop of color without being too overwhelming. To increase the volume, we recommend a complementary pairing of orange pillows or matching patterned blue pillows. In the bedroom, distance yourself from the traditional oak dresser, and opt for something unique with this blue 6-drawer double dresser.

Cool Down a Gallery Wall

One of the easiest ways to update your apartment is with rotating art. Pantone’s Color of the Year offers the perfect opportunity to invest in some new pieces. A gallery wall with a spectrum of blues will have guests impressed by your choice of art as well as your curation skills. If you’re decorating on a budget, we love this botanical print from Etsy as well as this landscape poster from Society6.

Think Blue in the Kitchen

One of the most unique and unexpected ways to add a pop of color into the home is via kitchen utensils and appliances. This cobalt blue mixer will excite your inner baker and enhance your countertop. We also love this 6-piece kitchen utensil set that will let you scoop, flip, and stir in style. Other fun accents you can incorporate are placemats, napkins, and handtowels.
