Cobalt Blue Color Palette
Who wouldn’t want to grow up in this bright blue, stripe-clad bedroom? A cobalt blue color palette is perfect for kids’ room because of its serious style staying-power. This shade will look fresh and new, long after the kiddos have outgrow their bunkbeds.
Make a Statement
A vivid cobalt sectional delivers a declaration of style in this playful, patterned living space. Replicate the look with a bright blue sofa, tufted ottoman or arm chair and let guests know you are as design-savvy as they come.
What’s worse than bland food in a kitchen? A bland backsplash! This bright blue subway tile is anything but, and delivers striking contrast against an otherwise white-on-white kitchen.
Designer Britany Simon's use of this bold blue hue delivered a hip and high-contrast workspace for clients. Copy-cat this cobalt look to energize your home office and up productivity, all in one fell swoop.
Saturated walls shine in this romantic master bedroom designed by Joanna Gaines. Crisp, white bedding pair with handcrafted furniture for an understated elegance, while bold blue walls grant the space a pop of personality.
Up the Drama
Looking to turn heads? Add some drama to your design. A few coats of cobalt are all that’s necessary to add dimension and enhance unique architectural details of a space.
Small Space, Big Impact
Don’t overlook the small spaces in your home — make them count! Use this pretty powder-room as your muse. A bold blue, patterned wallpaper will leave a lasting impression on guests and add to the overall wow-factor of your home.
Set the Tone
Use a bright color palette to evoke a playful tone in your space. A vibrant cobalt rug mimics the fun-loving energy of this contemporary dining table that doubles as a regulation ping-pong table.
We’re obsessed with the way designer Brian Patrick Flynn used the same blue hue for the walls and this vintage dresser from the 1970’s. Not only does this fresh, layered-look create tons of visual interest for the space, but it screams “design know-how”. That’s the always the end-goal, right?
Use this energized hue to tie different design styles together. The High Low Project used a pretty, patterned rug and matching cobalt walls as a contemporary compliment to a wood and leather rustic-industrial dining set.
