Blue is quickly taking center stage in home decor as the go-to hue for focal walls …

I have the pleasure of seeing a number of beautiful homes throughout the week as I show prospective Buyers available homes throughout Denver. The trend that I’ve noticed most notably is that blue is taking center stage in wall color. Blue has a very calming effect, so this trend isn’t all that surprising given that our homes are our sanctuaries.

Gray has been on trend for awhile, but the warmer grays have been king over the last few years. However, I’m seeing cooler grays more and more in homes with blue undertones. Additionally, many design magazines now feature blue hues for focal walls from cobalt blue to navy blue.  One of my favorite Instagram accounts to follow is elledecor, which  consistently shows rooms featuring blue walls from Robin Egg’s Blue to Midnight Blue.

If you’re thinking of making a transition to blue hued wall colors, Following are a few of my favorite colors;
