1. Dark Blue in Interior Design
In the home, dark blue can calm, focalize and add depth. Dark blues commonly used in interior design include navy blue, denim blue and royal blue. When decorating with dark blues high in saturation, stay away from darker accents, like black or charcoal. Compared to lighter colors, dark blue brings more depth, and can be styled on its own to define a space with a ‘pop of color’ – without any help from other hues.

2. Light Blue in Interior Design
Light blue, such as shades of turquoise, teal, sky blue and robin’s egg, can refresh and invigorate any space. Light blue with warmer undertones (such as turquoise and teal) will make a beachy, tropical splash, while light blue with cooler undertones (such as sky blue and robin’s egg) add a softer, breezier elegance.
