5. Accent colours for a blue dining room
However you decide to decorate your blue dining room, the good news is that giving it some added interest with a few pops of another colour is easy. Blue is a cool shade by nature, and works well with other cool tones as an accent – greys, purples and even black. For higher contrast and a bolder look, try a warm accent instead, such as red or yellow.
You could add striking contrast with a black dining table, upholstered blue dining chairs and a yellow rug.
Or a surprising colour combination is blue and orange – both at entirely different ends of the colour spectrum, and therefore ideal complements. Create your blue dining room, but then add orange cushions to a chair in the corner, and orange table lamps.
Try a softer blue colour in your dining room and it can almost work like a neutral. Pair pastel blue walls with wood accents, a patterned tablecloth, and colourful vases and lampshades.
