A bit about me: I LIVE in blue. Be it denim jeans on the weekend or a blue shirt for work (like the one I'm wearing right now), this is the only color that pops up in my otherwise monochrome closet. I've even gone out of my way to get a matching blue handbag and slingback heels — Zara girls, you'll know the ones I'm talking about.
But when it comes to bringing this color into my living room or kitchen, I've not been as bold. There's running the risk of my apartment looking like a cringe coastal retreat or making the space feel cold. I also rent, so painting the walls or buying new furniture to match isn't really an option.
But I don't want to give up on my cobalt dream, so I've shopped around to find some cool AF blue home decor pieces that'll work with my (and your) existing schemes. From royal to navy to powder blue, you can mix and match these colorful homewares to your heart's content.
If you haven't seen this Matisse print throw blanket all over TikTok, Instagram, or Pinterest, where have you been? It's one of the most popular throws you can have draped over your bed or couch, and it instantly makes your home picture-worthy.
Love it or hate it, I can't get enough of gluggle jugs. Quirky and fun, this fish carafe will stand out for all the right reasons. Keep your friends hydrated when they come around, or use it as a vase for your favorite flowers. This Amazon one is a nice dupe for the more expensive originals dating back to the 1890s.
Okay, so if anyone knows me, they'll know my obsession with colored glass. Yup, whether it's a tumbler, vase, or candle holder (as in this case), I love it. Chic and expensive looking — but usually cheap — it's a great way to turn your sideboard into artsy display.
Anddd to go with your candle holders, here are some candle sticks. These twisty blue ones from Hay are so cute. If you're not into the matchy-matchy look and already have some plain holders, then they're a great way to inject some color without having to commit.
Thinking of switching up your bedroom color scheme? Getting new bedding is one of the easiest ways to do so. Beddable has some of the softest sheets I've ever tried. Believe me: I've slept under more duvet covers than I can count and this mix-and-match navy bedding set looks just as good as it feels.
Oh, the always pan. A fan-favorite and the piece all your friends are raving about on Instagram. Saving cupboard space, you can use this one-pan-wonder to cook just about everything. I think this bright cobalt blue from its recent collection with Selena Gomez is good enough to keep on display.
Something a little more practical, these metal tins from H&M in variations of blue are ideal for keeping your stationery, keys, and other trinkets in one place. Under $18 for a pack of three, you can have one for each room without having to drain your bank account. Go on, organize your heart out.
You heard it here first: Instagram's famous mushroom lamp is everywhere. But buying an original is pricey. One great dupe that still has an iconic design is the Fatboy. Renowned for its transparent look and exposed wire and bulb detail, I haven't seen a cooler light fixture — especially in blue.
Remember the blue throw from earlier? It seems there's something of a Matisse trend going on. Though art lovers may have been fans since forever ago, if you're new to the Matisse scene this print is a super stylish way to acquaint yourself. It's perfect for creating a new blue room color scheme, too.
