June is a month of dreamy weather, sky gazing and spending as much time on the porch or patio as possible. We can’t help but smile when looking up at the soft blue sky dotted with white fluffy clouds. Behr paint color Bluebird PPU15-12 is a saturated color that is energetic. It has more energy than say a Light Drizzle which is calmer and more soothing. Bluebird calls to mind those gentle June skies that inspire us to relax and enjoy the moment.
Bluebird makes a stunning statement in a foyer or entryway, even if used on a single piece of furniture. Paint an entry table in this carefree hue to bring a sense of wonder and interest to the home. This effect works well with white walls and a patterned floor adorned in hints of charcoal, light gray, white and a touch of blue. A mirror on the wall above the table reflects blue into the room, adding a sense of depth that works well even in a narrow entryway.
For an entirely different look in a living room, coat the fireplace surround and mantel with Bluebird. This cheery hue looks especially stunning against stark white or light gray walls. Top the mantel with a favorite painting, such as an abstract piece in whites, grays, blues and golds.
Bluebird also adds an astounding amount of interest to a stairwell. Paint the stair treads in this welcoming blue tone and surround them with white stairs, walls and wall trim. The result feels a bit like walking up into the sky. At the staircase landing, outfit the area with pickled oak or light wood floors, a natural fiber area rug and a few home accents in sandy earth tones.
Turn the kitchen into a peaceful household gathering place with Bluebird walls. White window trim and cabinets stand out against this gorgeous blue for a result that looks as a summer sunny-day sky. A granite or marble counter-top looks amazing with this color scheme, as does a light-colored wood or tile floor. Add a few earthy accents such as woven baskets and wooden trays for that earth-and-sky appeal.
Bluebird also adds visual interest for a studio apartment or home with an open floor plan. For the kitchen, blue base-cabinets with white wall-cabinets, and gray walls add an artistic touch to a modern space. Outfit the rest of the area with wood furniture, blue or gray upholstery and a patterned monochromatic area rug. Wood floors make this space feel inviting as well.
A child’s bedroom or play area is an ideal space for Bluebird walls, too. A color scheme with blues, tans and whites creates a peaceful vibe when used as accent colors on furniture, stuffed animals and toy storage bins.
In a teen or adult bedroom, Bluebird works well in several different scenarios. For a unique look in a room with light-colored walls, paint a wood bed frame in Bluebird. Adorn the rest of the space with white, gray or tan bedding, a natural fiber rug and accent pieces. For another look, Bluebird walls pair well with a gray upholstered bed frame with white bedding. This look works well with light or dark wood floors, as well as with platinum or silver bedside tables.
