Beach coastal mixing blues and natural woodsWe all know blue and white compliment each other extremely well. There’s no questioning that color combination when it comes to decor. However, one other color, more of a material, accents blue hues just as well and that’s wood.

Wood is a great material to pair with the color blue. You can decorate with light or dark wood and find a blue hue that matches flawlessly. Pair a strong navy blue with a deep walnut to bring out the rich hues of each color. If you’re decorating with a lighter palette you can compliment a light blue with an ash or white oak.

Mix and match hues to find the perfect color combination for your home! Check out how these designers have paired blue with different types and hues of wood!

We’re still making color boards for you guys and showing you how you can create a fun, custom palette with your color board. Last week we showed you a color board based on a palette that has already been used to design a room. Did you miss last week’s color board? It’s okay! Take a quick look here!

In last week’s post we talked about a few ways to get started with your color board. This week we’re showing you how to grab an image you love and pull colors from it. It’s simple! Go to google images, flickr, pinterest or even flip open a magazine and start searching!

We found this image on flickr and instantly fell in love. It’s so bright, colorful and most of all coastal! We had to use it for this post! We were instantly attracted to colors of the boat because the hues work so well together making it easy to use and incorporate into a palette. Also the beach sand and the ocean provide great hues that match the boat’s colors perfectly. This color board creates a palette that allows a varying range of colors to work with in any space. It’s really that easy to grab an image and create a color board from it!

Now that you know how easy it is, get out there and create those color boards! Remember, don’t forget to have fun with your colors! Experimenting and mixing some unexpected colors can lead to something you’ll love!
