    One of the reasons that blue works so well is the warmth the shade can evoke. Dark blues are a wonderful alternative to stark black interiors. They have a depth to them and can warm up a room in a way that black cannot. Here, a living room painted in Pottery Barn's Naval shade is warm and cozy.

    Layered Blue Living Room

    Blue is fun to layer, but mastering layers of blue can be tricky for many design enthusiasts. It's important to note that all shades of blue are not the same. Some can be cold and icy while others are warm and inviting. When color-blocking a blue room, layer shades that have a relationship with each other. Here, the blue velvet sofa, the side chairs, and the patterned rug all have the same tone. The colors speak to each other, allowing the lighter blue walls to work mainly as a neutral backdrop in this living room.

    Blue isn't just for the living area. The color is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing bedroom retreat. In this bedroom, the moody navy blue perfectly accompanies many of the other dark shades in the space. A complement to the blacks and grays, the neutral shade is one that certainly works well with others. This chalky shade of Navy Yard from AphroChic's Brooklyn In Color collection is also available as chalkboard paint—another great way to use blue in an interior.
