The Color of the Year: Blue

How I use the color of the year ‘blue’ in my Living Room

This is my year, y’all… literally, because the 2020 color of the year is blue. And y’all know how much I love blue! So when Kirkland’s reached out to me to take a look at what’s new, and blue, in stores, it was a perfect match. Let me show you how I incorporate the color of the year into my home with on trend finds from Kirkland’s.

I love the modern coastal cottage vibe…it’s casual yet stylish with comfortable linen fabrics, natural materials, layered neutrals, greenery and pops of blue. All things that I found at Kirkland’s.  I have always used certain shades of the color blue as a neutral, because it is such a classic color. Blue works with so many different colors and styles. Therefore, I understand why it is the color of the year.

 

Start with the basics, then add blue!

Your personal style is an extension of you. Find what works for your family and your space, incorporate family heirlooms and collections, and finally, add in some trendy pieces that you love, yet will stand the test of time.  My best advice is to start with neutral furniture and classic decor elements. Then, add your personality in the details and with pops of color.

 

What’s New at Kirkland’s featuring the Color of the Year

First, I added a pop of color with two shades of beautiful, blue pillows. The light blue ones are so soft with a woven texture and whipstitch detail. The navy pillow is cozy and contrasts well in the living room. Both are from Kirkland’s, both I love!

Next, I layered artwork from Kirkland’s over a well weathered gate and vertical shiplap paneling above my fireplace mantle. The artwork is simple with serene colors and a light colored wood frame.

Then, natural materials like these trendy woven baskets with a simple stripe provide extra storage for everyday living. For instance, I can throw extra pillows, blankets or even remotes in these baskets. Plus, they look cute.

I visited my local store, but there are thousands of BLUE home decor products at Kirkland’s online, too. Click here to see… But first, head to my instagram stories to see what else I found in Kirkland’s and for a tour of my living room featuring blue, the color of the year!

    I absolutely LOVE blue – even named my house the Bluebelle cottage! It’s my anchor color and that will never change. I love your room and fireplace and thanks to you, I discovered Kirklands!
