We’re love spaces that are designed with blue hues! Not sure if spring has completely sprung and we’re rapidly jumping into summer mode or if it’s the permanent coastal love affair between the style and the color, but we’re really into it!
Blue is a color that is refreshingly simple that welcomes you with open arms and says, “Come in and relax. You are home.” Can you think of a better way to start or end the day in? Imagine every time you come home and you’re transported away in tranquility. Okay, we know we’re a little carried away, but can you blame us?? No way!
As we all know, we can talk about beautiful homes and spaces all day, but sometimes, you have to leave the heavy hitting to the pictures. So kick back and enjoy these wonderful spaces, because we definitely are!

Color is a fun and easy way to bring personal style to any space. Unlike creating a mood with tones, color allows you to break up a space to make bright and bold statements. You can decorate with a pre-designed color palette, choose colors based on your favorite pattern, use color to accent or even just use color for the sake of using color. Basically, you can do anything and everything design-wise with color.
People will say that there is a way to design with color and there is a way not to. They might say that you should use color vertically and start with darker colors and hues on the floor and slowly transition to lighter color and hues the closer you get to the ceiling. They might say start with the front door and entryway s0 that you can color your way through the house to keep the color palette cohesive and consistent. They might tell you to stay away from this color with that color or that color with this color.
Want to know the cold hard truth about designing with color? Do whatever you want.
Pick whatever color(s) you want and start designing. Make as much or as little visual noise as you want! Picture your home as a coloring book, just add the color and complete the picture. Seriously, it’s really not that hard and no color is wrong. The best part about using color is you can always take some of it away. Trying to pair bright orange pillows on a dark blue sofa? Maybe opt out for white or light yellows to compliment. It’s all about playing and experimenting to figure what you like and want.
You might not get it right the first time and that’s okay. It really is part of the fun. The mixing and matching is all part of the game we love to call design. It will help you grow and understand yourself as well as design. And if you absolutely can’t get it right that’s what we have the pros like the Tuvalu Home Design Team for. Give ’em a call if you want a beautifully designed space, we promise you want be disappointed!
