Blue is the color of the sky and the sea evoking qualities such as purity, peace, and serenity in interior design. In the home, the shade is immediately calming and welcoming, whether used in a deep navy for a touch of drama, or a pale robin's egg in a more subtle space. Blue is also a common color you will see at Willis Furniture and in the many homes of coastal Virginia. There are so many ways to add blue to your space, whether it's furniture, an accent lamp, art, or even an area rug.  Here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate the color into your home:

1. Use it as a paint finish.

This gorgeous hand-glazed finish from Gat Creek is one of our favorites!


2. Add blue art.

It could be an ocean landscape or an abstract with blue accents.

3. Add blue rug.

It could be subtle like this Karastan rug.

Or a little more bold like this Loloi Loren rug.

4. Blue accent lamps.

It is so easy to add a hint of blue with the many table lamps we carry at Willis.
