Don't be blue this Holiday Season...or maybe you should be blue
Are you entertaining family and friends this holiday season but your home seems drab? Consider adding blue to create a vibe that will wow your guests. There's no need to pay for an expensive renovation. Add some color. Blue is the new neutral. A Christmas tree looks stunning set against a blue wall.

Monochromatic color schemes is the way designers achieve stunning style. Use different shades of blue to achieve drama and depth. This small blue casement sideboard makes a real statement.
This tall blue casement cabinet is great for small spaces and will create a stunning look, particularly set against a blue wall.
My pick of the season is this brass bar cart with silver concrete
shelves from Crate & Barrel
A bar cabinet that doubles as a beautiful piece of furniture, yes please!
Joybird sofas are my favorite
Splurge on designer pillows. I feel strongly on this one. I'm creating an entire blog post just on pillows. You heard me right. Just pillows.
Velvet pieces give a designer feel to your home

Create a focal point with a unique pendant light
Every room needs a focal point. Create a focal point by using a large pendant light over a colored console table with some unusual artwork and textured wallpaper. This waterfall Indigo Storage Cabinet is gorgeous!
A brass coffee table paired with bold overhead lighting set against blue furniture will wow your guests

This beautiful brass bar cart adds drama and is great for entertaining
Another great print from ICanvas
If you want to tone down the blue, brown is a great complement
Brown is another excellent accent color to use with blue, and it will soften blue walls and blue furniture. Consider brown leather, wood coffee tables and end tables set against a blue background.
Use wallpaper instead of paint to add texture
Vinyl peel and stick wallpaper adds texture and visual interest rather than a coat of blue paint
Use a neutral rug to pair with blue
I love this area rug from Ballard Designs
This neutral Sisal area rug is also a nice color to pair with blue
