5 Ideas for Blue Feature Walls in your Bedroom

Bringing a touch of blue into the bedroom can be a breath of fresh air, and while you may not long for the entire room to be awash with colour, a blue feature wall could be exactly what your bedroom is missing.

It’s one of the most effortless ways to express your creativity, while instantly refreshing an uninspiring area. There are countless ways to incorporate a blue feature wall, too, so don’t be afraid to attempt something slightly different like incorporating two complementary shades

From calming coastal colours to jewel-toned elegance, there’s no shortage of choice when it comes to picking the perfect blue hue. So, explore our five blue feature wall ideas for the bedroom for some transformation inspiration.

Two-tone

If you’re looking to make a stylish statement, opting for a two-toned feature wall with bold block colours is an excellent and easy way to introduce blue to your bedroom. 

The key to nailing this is to be bold with your choices, rather than playing it safe with muted hues. For a dark blue feature wall try Breton Blue, which brings an immediate air of sophistication to a bedroom, particularly when paired with complementary colours such as Neptune Seas

When it comes to tying the look together with furnishings, think dark rich wood for added opulence, and industrial elements like brass and copper for a contemporary finish. Contrast these with softer pieces like cushions and throws in shades that bring out the feature wall’s tones.

Split wall

Add a little extra fun to your bedroom wall with a chic play on the two-tone trend. Do this by adding a bold stripe in a contrasting colour to separate the two tones.

It’s sure to inject plenty of personality into your room, with minimal effort and only a slightly steady hand required. Plus, when the stripe is painted closer to the top of the wall, this helps to enhance smaller spaces and gives the illusion of higher ceilings. 

If you’re looking at the darker end of the spectrum, pair a deep navy blue feature wall in a colour such as Sapphire Salute with a striking stripe in Pure Brilliant White. Complete the look by using Enchanted Eden for the upper section for a chic contrasting effect.

For larger rooms, try a rich hue like Oxford Blue and Lost Lake, combined with a stripe in a colour like  Volcanic Red, before adding an alternate grey shade such as Bowler Hat above the stripe.

Keep soft furnishings in neutral shades of cream and white, but introduce textures with pieces like marble-effect side tables and statement silver lamps.

Bold and powerful 

A blue feature wall in a bold and vibrant shade can completely transform a room, so let your imagination run wild and get creative. If you want to lift the energy of your bedroom, try a beautifully radiant tone such as Atlantic Blue. Or, if you’re feeling totally fed up with neutral walls, go all out and give Striking Cyan a go. 

Integrating these colours into your bedroom allows you to introduce warmer-hued decor like gold trinkets and pendant lighting. Add a mustard-hued plush armchair and some cushions in the same colour on your bed to give your room that retro feel. 

Pale blue hue

From blissful powdery hues to warmer soothing shades, pale blue bedrooms are instantly calming, while also allowing for playful elements to be added.

If you’re working with a smaller space, a barely-there blue feature wall in Blueberry White can liven up a room without being overbearing. Pastels perfectly complement each other, so bring in pops of colour with small vases and ceramics in a spectrum of muted shades on surfaces. Spruce it up by choosing bedding in more vibrant colours like powder pinks or shades of yellow. 

For larger rooms, an ornate brushed gold mirror or cabinet can really work well with a light blue statement wall, giving it a luxury feel.

To create a truly tranquil room, take inspiration from the nautical trend and weave in cream soft furnishings, an off-white or beige rug and a few silver trinkets dotted around on your side tables and dressing table. 

Contrasting colour 

Contrasting colour feature walls are an excellent way to give the illusion of depth in a smaller room, while giving you a more serene space to wake up in. 

The contrast can be as bold or as subtle as you like, but we love the effect of contrasting Blissful Blue with a crisp Absolute White.  Lighter blues can still be cosy and inviting, especially when you add sumptuous soft touches in shades of light blue and dusky grey like a fluffy rug, throws and bedding.

With its versatility and the array of techniques you can use to achieve it, a blue feature wall can give your bedroom the transformation you may never have thought to try.
