For those of us who gravitate towards blues in our bedrooms, fall decorating can sometimes present a challenge. We ask ourselves where all of our beloved cool blues can fit in with traditional fall colors or if it even can. Whether you usually go for a coastal vibe or whether you just love the classic combination of blues and whites, you really can have your blue and have your fall, too. Read on for some fall bedroom ideas that feature blue as the dominant color.
How To Use Blue In Your Fall Decor
We find inspiration in the earlier sunsets that autumn brings. In this season, night falls sooner, and inky blues deepen across the sky as the sun’s last orange hues sink beneath the horizon.
Blue is a fantastic color for your fall decor since blue serves as a beautiful foil to shades of gold and crimson. One way you can incorporate blue into your fall bedroom is by using deeper shades of blue–think indigo, denim, and navy. These rich blues, like the kind in our Pacific Blue print, are far from the sky blues of spring and great to use in your fall decorating.
Make blue your anchor color
Blue works well with a variety of decor styles and it always plays well with others since it enjoys playing the dual role of color-bringer and neutralizer. Dress your fall bedding in blue for a calming, cozy feeling.

Choose softness over crispness
In the fall, we begin to seek a sense of coziness as we prepare ourselves for cooler weather and winter holidays. Take that approach with your bedding by packing away the crisp whites of spring and summer and move to the gentle creams of autumn’s palette–cream and blue create a soft, elegant look. Don’t forget to pile on some irresistibly soft layers for extreme coziness!
Accessorize to achieve a sense of autumn
How you choose to accessorize blue fall decor depends on what kind of design you’re after. Do you want to incorporate a traditional color scheme? If so, add shades of rust, burnt orange, mustard yellow, crimson–all the colors of the season’s change.
On the other hand, if you prefer a more neutral look, then add items with incredible texture and pattern: patterned linens, washed woods, natural finishes, items with patina–these are at home here.
Handwoven with dried corn husks, oat, flax, and wheat, such a wreath provides a natural, organic texture to any space.
Add touches that delight your senses
A bedroom calls for comfort any time of year; in the fall, we particularly crave sensory delights. Bring in cheery florals to wake up to and relaxing scents to help you unwind. Gold, copper, and brass finishes pair naturally with blue decor in fall–golden hues fall opposite of blue on the color wheel.
Fill with sunflowers or a few choice branches of colorful leaves and add a grouping of these gilded bottles to your dresser to lend shimmer to your fall bedroom decor.
