 Here are some great accent pieces that I think would fit in extremely well in a room using this blue color!

1. Lamp – idecorstore.com has such cute things! Definitely worth checking out!

2. Chair – I am and have always been a fan of West Elm. Their furniture does run on the expensive side but is high quality and lasts forever!

3. Quilt – I love this quilt from Serena and Lily. It’s perfect for a summer home or a bedroom! It’s warm and inviting yet not too hot! Perfect colors.

4. Pillow – Why not add a little fun to your room with this Jonathan Adler pillow. Tiger stripes in a subtle blue to add just enough “oomph” to your otherwise dull room!!

Check back TOMORROW for home staging tips and see the before picture of this fabulous teenager’s bedroom that I staged!

Blue is so versatile. Often people think blue can only act as a cool color to tone down a bright space.  Blue can also act as a wonderful color to lift the color or mood in a space.  Blue has the ability to highlight beautiful windows and the views in those spaces!
