Here at Sarasota Collection home store, our job is to keep a finger on the pulse of interior design. It’s a fun job! And there’s nothing more exciting than showing our customers the hottest new furniture and interior design styles. For the 2019 – 2020 fall and winter seasons we’ve noticed the color blue making a huge impression in the industry. We’re not talking about mild baby blues for a baby’s room either, but deep, rich, saturated blues for the whole home.

How to Decorate Your Sarasota Home in Blues

We love blues for all interior design features: furniture, area rugs, walls, and window treatments. It’s really a commitment though, so if you go bold with blue you need to do it right.

Deep blues love sunshine. We suggest you use it in bright rooms with lots of natural light. Sarasota gets plenty of sun, so you won’t have a problem picking a room to explore your blue side. Avoid it in dark rooms or small rooms, where it can become dark and cold looking.

When working with blue, a good rule of thumb is to start with the flooring and work your way up. Start with a vast ocean blue carpet in a living room, or a brilliant sapphire blue area rug. Then add walls which are a shade or two lighter and finally implement custom furniture in elegant neutrals like our Basilisa 3 seater in mahg/rattan and matching end tables.

Add airy window treatments to encourage natural sunshine and finally finish the room with decor which will enhance the play of light in your room like a gem! Use mirrors and metallics playfully to bounce the light around.
