If you are thinking about blue, think about how often you’ll use the room. In a living room you’ll want a softer more neutral blue that will work well with other colors so you won’t get tired of it. Blue is also great if you have natural wood trim such as Walnut.. Save the bolder hues for a den, or an office.

If you decide on a cool blue color and it looks like it needs a little life, consider adding some fiery red, Fuchsia or even a vibrant yellow for accents.
