It’s time to highlight a long time love of mine. A color that I think is a timeless bold and one worth investing in as it never goes out of style. That color is… cobalt blue! Here’s why I think it’s a crush-worthy shade of blue and a few ways you can bring it into your home today:
Cobalt Blue aka the chemical compound cobalt oxide-aluminum oxide
Pair it With
I absolutely love cobalt blue when it’s paired with other shades of blues for a monochromatic look. For a bright look, pair it with a lighter pastel blue. Or if you wanted to take it a bit deeper, a slate blue. Mint and chartreuse are my favorite pairing shades of green. And of course, when in doubt, millennial pink.
For other home accents, brass, copper, white, anything wooden, and even black will be complimentary.
Why it’s Crush-Worthy
Cobalt blue is a color that can stand on its own and command a room without overwhelming a space (which is no easy task). It’s rich, bold, and calming all at the same time. Plus for a cool color, it radiates vibrancy and gives off the joy typically associated with warmer colors like yellow.
How to Bring it Home
I adore any space that uses this color as an unexpected pop. Think the side or inside of your drawers, stairs, or even in a door way. You can absolutely go bigger with this color and use it to paint a room. Dining room chairs or a singular statement chair make great investable pieces. For those who are feeling a bit timid, try a table lamp! I love this one that can be used as a table lamp or pendant.
