Great Carpet Colors To Go With Blue Walls
Blue is such a soothing color. And with its wide range of hues from the palest sky blue to ocean blue to the deepest navy it's a designer's dream. Plus it coordinates with so many other colors that it can be worked into almost any style. Let's take a look at some examples of wonderful blue wall and carpet combinations.
Creme Colored Carpets With Blue Walls
Creme colored carpets and blue walls are like the sand and the ocean. Both are soothing visually and will promote a sense of clean, lightness in an interior space. Here a bright medium blue accent wall has been paired with a carpeted living room. The creme works well with the paint color and with the stone surround of the fireplace.
Tan Or Natural Colored Carpets With Blue Walls
If you're looking for spa-style serenity, look no further than tan or natural-toned carpets paired with any shade of a blue wall. Here a robin's egg blue and soft tan wall-to-wall carpet provides a soothing sleep zone for a bedroom. This combination will help carry you quickly into dreamland.
Grey and Blue Are A Natural Combination
Grey has grown in popularity over the last several years and it's no exception for grey carpet. This neutral color comes in a wide range of shades, just like blue. Consider pairing a lighter grey with darker blue walls, like in this room with soft textured grey carpet and navy-grey wall color. Or, consider the opposite. Pair light blue walls with deep grey or charcoal colored carpeting.
Blue Plus Blue Makes A Great Room For You
Choosing different shades of the same color when doing any sort of design decision can always work. The same is true for pairing a blue carpet with blue walls. In this bedroom, various shades of navy, royal blue, and grey-blue are accentuated against light blue walls. But even choosing very similar shades can work. A monochromatic design leaves room for accents of color in other areas.
White Goes With Everything
If you have the capacity to keep white carpets clean, white is a super luxurious choice paired with blue wall paint. Of course, the downside to white carpet is its propensity to gather dirt. If you have a house full of kids, live on a farm, or have beloved dogs, then white, though it will match just fine, might not be the choice for you.
Pink Is Fun With Blue
Blue and pink have long been associated with nurseries, but both colors have grown up and expanded. The design world is quick to pair pale pinks with navy blues. Or brilliant fuschia with a luminesce robin's egg blue like in this room. The added bonus of texture in the carpet makes this an absolutely fun combination.
Brown Carpet With Blue Walls For a Warm And Cozy Look
Brown and blue are a good compromise between super feminine or super masculine color choices. This color combination tends to satisfy many different types of tastes. In this living room soft brown pairs beautifully with the greyish blue wall color. You could also choose a dark brown carpet and paint your walls a light sky blue. Add some lovely brown leather furniture and this will be a room your whole family wants to pile into for movie night. (See post here: "14 Living Room Color Schemes With Brown Leather Furniture")

The color blue symbolizes serenity, stability, inspiration, or wisdom. Which for us, makes it a great bedroom color choice. Who wouldn't want to dream up some inspiration, or find serene wisdom as you sleep?

What Is The Most Popular Carpet Color?
Most people tend to gravitate toward neutrals when they pick their carpets. Lately, the most popular neutral has been grey. In years past the favorite neutral was a soft beige. But look for almost navy blues to have a surge in popularity in the coming years, along with bold colors as people tire of the grey and white trends we've been seeing for the past couple of years.
If you're selling a home, it's always best to go with neutrals though. Pop up the color through your staging but keep your base colors basic. Bold statements are extremely personal, and what might be amazing to you could be simply awful to a prospective buyer.
