7 Ways to Master Pastel Blue at Home

Here at NONAGON.style we love a bit of blue, as evidenced here and here. In all our blue adventures though, we’ve rarely explored blue in its frothy sky, duck egg, pastel-toned form – until now that is. Stand by for a round up of our favorite pastel blue-themed interiors and decor items that are sure to make you love blue as much as we do.

Taking inspiration from Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, this room expertly mixes pink and blue without making it feel like we’re in a children’s nursery. Geometric shapes facilitate color blocking for a simple yet effective feature wall. The layering of different tones of pastel blue above the doorway is a nice idea to steal if you want to add dimension to a space.

Pastel denim blue and Scandinavian designed? This Sofa Bed is basically all our favorite things rolled into one. We like how the dark stained feet add a mid-century modern appeal to the piece, allowing it to be styled in both contemporary and classic homes. Don’t think that this pick is just style over function though! This sofa is a practical piece perfect for a flexi-living situation; simply push down the arms and remove the back cushion to transform it into a day bed.

Exposed brick walls don’t mean you have to adopt an industrial loft aesthetic. Instead, by painting the walls a gentle sky blue the designer of this space has managed to create an altogether different (read: warmer) vibe. Alongside the impressive collection of greenery and exotic rattan accents, the blue helps to establish a bohemian indoor-outdoor living ambiance. We imagine this room to lead out to a balcony packed to the brim with fairy lights, a hanging woven hammock, and even more succulents.

For an industrial take on pastel blue we present the Hairpin Stool. The curved Tiffany blue lines of this stool offer a glossy elegance that is matched by the beautiful elm wood seat. Have a couple of these on hand for those times when you’re entertaining and in need of extra seating – they’re stackable, so great for stowing away in the corner when not in use.

Duck egg blue cabinetry lends a sense of calm and tranquility to this bright and modern open plan kitchen. We like how the design sticks to cool toned chrome grays and minimalist white to keep the space sleek and sophisticated. The addition of pine accents add just the right amount of natural warmth, stopping this from looking like an abstract show house.

Say goodbye to those morning blues with this pretty baby blue coffee machine. We love the idea of incorporating this into an all-white minimalist kitchen for a playful way to add a refreshing pop of color.

Coffee not your thing? This 4 Slice Toaster would work just as well. Style as above, or add to a kitchen with matching powder blue shiplap cabinets and exposed white-washed brick walls for a charming rustic meets industrial vibe.
