6 Beautiful Capri Blue Rooms (And Ideas to Steal From Each!)
Show Your Stripes
Entryways set the tone for the entire home, so they’re a great place to do something fun and unexpected. Rather than simply splashing the walls in a statement-making hue, opt for a classic striped pattern, which adds interest in addition to white space. (Thick, vertical stripes also help to elongate the room.) Pair the stripes with natural materials like bamboo and rattan for a sophisticated look.
Give Paint a New Purpose
The perfect shade of blue paint deserves a life beyond the walls. In this Watersound, Florida, dining room, the owners maintained the light, airy feel of shiplap walls and turned the paintbrush to the furniture. Wooden dining chairs dressed in various shades of blue and green add the perfect amount of color and playfulness to this soothing space.
Tile It Up
Glossy tiles in a Capri Blue hue glitter just like the sea, and are a gorgeous addition to any kitchen or bath. Don’t be afraid to do something daring, like stretch a bold backsplash along an entire kitchen wall or tile just the bathroom flooring in beautiful blues (you’ll feel like you’re walking on water!).
Go All Out
A classic coastal shade like Capri Blue shouldn’t just be hidden away indoors. The hue is one of our faves as an exterior paint on a beach cottage. Next to the sea, a blue cottage feels right at home; for less of a commitment (but still all the happy vibes), paint just the shutters and front door.
Strike a Balance
In a showroom, the vibrant upholstered Capri Blue armchair might’ve seemed like a bold purchase, but surrounded by a palette of neutrals and backed by the stunning raw poplar wall paneling, it feels much more subdued. The shade, coupled with the room’s quirky carved sea creatures, adds a beachy sense of place to the whole look.
