When you talk about dining rooms and colors, it is often the hot hues that lead the pack. The most popular reason for this is the belief that hot hues are supposed to stimulate the appetite. But then, many of those rules have been challenged (and rightfully so) by modern designers who have put an end to the myth that dining rooms look good only in yellow, red or orange. While other amazing colors like purple and even black have been used brilliantly in the dining space, today we take a look at how to paint it blue in style!

1. Inspired by Nature

The fact that blue offers an amazing array of shades and hues with each having its own appeal is not really earth shattering news to any design aficionado. While there are literally ‘a world of shades’ to pick from, taking a cue from nature is indeed a great start

2. Dashing Dark Beauty

if light blues do not really capture your fancy, then maybe you love the darker and deeper variants. Picking shades of blue that almost tend to delve into gray or deep, matte purple will work if you are looking to create a sophisticated backdrop for a more formal dining room. This bold background also allows you wall art and dining room decor to stand out visually and can even help in highlight smart, unique architectural features.

3. A Captivating Backdrop

White and blue is a match made in color heaven, and you can tap into this classic combination by simply using blue as an accent hue. This can either work in the form of an accent wall in blue, or one can use the color more extensively with white breaking up the visual monotony.

4.Out with the White Ceiling

As always, think beyond just the walls when you are planning to add a new color to the dining room. A ceiling in light blue not only gives the room a sense of freshness, but makes it appear visually taller and does so with absolute ease! Replacing the white ceiling with one in blue is also a cost-effective way to add color to the dining room and is once again a strategy that works all the more beautifully in open plan spaces.

5. Decorate with Blue

If paint and wallpaper feel like too much, then there is always the easier way of adding color with decor and accessories. Rugs in bold blue, drapes that can easily create a blue backdrop when needed and smashing dining table chairs in bright, bold blue are all some wonderful ways of adding the color to the dining room before committing to it more permanently.

6. Throw in Some Trendy Gray

Sure, white and blue make the perfect pair, but have you ever thought about bringing together your favorite shade of blue and what might soon take over the status of the hottest neutral of the decade? Yes, we are talking about gray, and it does gel beautifully with blue when used right.
