Color Trend: Aqua Home Decor

Happy Hump Day! I hope all of you are doing well out there in blogland. It’s another busy week for the Sooter household – working lots of jobs this week and still trying to recover from my sister’s wedding! We will hopefully be heading out to a friend’s cabin out in Port Townsend, which will be some much needed R&R! Being by the water gives me the most calming feeling on the planet. The cool breeze, the soft lap of the waves on the dock, ahhh perfection.

Aqua home decor can be dressed up or dressed down, made sophisticated or pulled into a playful mood. I’m here to show you how to get gorgeous aqua into your home in small easy ways and in big bold ways, depending on if you want to “try it” and just want to start with a little accent, “like it” and are ready to up the ante or “love it” and want to incorporate the color into your home in a big way.

Aqua Bathroom

A great way to make a small bathroom seem bigger is to add a pop of aqua to the space. This light and bright color will bring airyness to the powder room, giving it the illusion of being larger than it actually is. Like anywhere in the home, add beachy colors if you want a coastal vibe, and brighter, more unconventional colors for some hip quirk.Β  That striped wall at the top is one of my favorites!

Try It: Think small by adding some new hand towels or a soap dispenser and toothbrush holder for a dabble of this beautiful blue.

Like It: Try a new fun shower curtain with a bold print or paint an accent wall!

Love It: Put in some gorgeous new tile, an aqua claw foot tub, or coat the room in aqua from head to toe like the House Beautiful photo above!
