The easiest ways to bring in a splash of color and freshen up your space are pillows and throws. Quick and affordable, mixing in some new accent pillows and throws can keep your space up to date. Or you can participate in the latest trends with the pieces you already own. Have fun mixing patterns, sizes, and textures too.

Adding or changing up some accent seating is another great way to add in a pop of color. Accent chairs, ottomans, and benches in sky blue work with many color schemes and can make a big impact without having to completely change your space.

Bringing in the fresh blue tones with some art allows you to add color to the walls without repainting. Go for a bold, large scale piece of art or a cool, calm, and collected gallery wall.

Whether your style is bold and colorful or a soft and subtle, updating your rug can really transform a space and the furniture you already have. Bringing a sky blue accent in through a new rug will brighten things up and its cool tone will create a relaxing vibe.

After our long, cold winter, we all want to open up the windows to let the fresh air and sunshine in. Adding some fun, sky blue drapery will be a perfect way to continue to bring the outdoors in.

I’m not sure if I lke the blue walls. In a way it makes the room look colder than it is, that is fine in summer, but I feel would be a bad idea in winter

A really nice accent chair, with lots of retro appeal, especially with the way that the legs are styled.
