Blue is easy to combine with other colours
Not only does blue look nice as the primary colour in a room, it also works well when combined with many other secondary colours. Think of it this way: you’re unlikely to replace your wallpaper often. It’s easier to replace other decor. Blue wallpaper is a smart move if you’re the type who likes variety and change, but still prefers a little colour on your walls. Nor do you need to overcomplicate things to give your room a facelift. Just think how much you can change the feel of a bedroom simply by changing the bedspread. Pull out all the stops and create a powerful impression with orange styling details to go along with your blue wallpaper, or give the room a harmonious feel by adding green houseplants and lots of white details to go with the blue wallpaper. You’re sure to have any number of ideas for how to match blue wallpaper with something that looks good.

Blue wallpaper + wood floor = a match made in heaven
There’s no better match than blue walls with a pale wood floor. It’s a gorgeous and timeless combo. You should definitely consider blue wallpaper if you have a beautiful wood floor and want to accentuate the mood of the room. If you don't want the walls to be too dominant, go for patterned wallpaper with touches of whites or another brighter tone.
Fun facts about the colour blue
You will have come across Bluetooth in your electronics. It’s a strange name for wireless transfer between electronic devices, isn’t it? Actually, it was originally the working name when Bluetooth was in development – a name that stuck. It was inspired by the king of Denmark, Harald Bluetooth, who united much of Scandinavia between 950 and 986. But why on earth would anyone be called Bluetooth in the first place? Back then, the word blue was also used to describe black in the Scandinavian languages. So Harald Blacktooth would have made more sense, given the word's current usage. The word blue in its current meaning made its way to Scandinavia from France, via England, in the thirteenth century.
Historically a highly exclusive and expensive colour
Blue was anything but a common colour in the old days. The colour blue was initially produced by crushing a mineral called Lapis Lazuli. It was so rare that it cost as much as gold. It was not until the late nineteenth century that we started producing synthetic blue colours, making them affordable. Now you know a little more about the colour blue.
