Use dark blue paint to refresh your living room walls: If your living room is crying out for a splash of colour, try refreshing your space with a coat of deep blue paint. Next, contrast your walls with a beige armchair, a floral print pillow and sleek wooden photo frames. Use an ornate wooden lamp with a beige lampshade, along with a woven side table to complete your décor statement.

Contrast blue furnishings with shades of white and aqua: Try injecting bright hints of blue into your living room, with a navy blue accent wall and surrounding aqua walls. Meanwhile, gleaming hardwood floors, a beige area rug and plush cobalt armchairs help to capture the colour of your walls and complement your space.
