Want to get out of sameness and dare in your home decor? Then we invite you to know and appreciate the use of the oil blue color in the decoration. This closed tone, somewhat greenish, is one of the colors of the moment and is making the biggest success among architects and interior designers.
And all this popularity is not for nothing. Petroleum blue has the rare ability to leave noble and sophisticated environments at the same time that it fills them with modernity and style.
But don’t be afraid of this oil blue versatility. The color is not difficult to combine and can be used in any room of the house, from bedrooms to the living room, through the kitchen and the bathroom.
To create a more modern environment, for example, bet on the combination of petroleum blue and its complementary tones, such as orange or yellow. For more minimalist and clean style atmospheres, opt for the combination with neutral colors, such as white, black, gray, and Off White tones. Colors similar to blue are also a good option, in this case, look for the palette of shades of green and pink.
Now if the idea is a classic, elegant, and full of charm environment, bet on the use of petroleum blue with brown variations, which can be the wood of the furniture itself or shades like caramel, for example.
When it comes to adding petroleum blue to the decoration, you have two options: apply it to large surfaces, such as walls, floors, and furniture, or use it in balanced doses on smaller objects, such as cushion covers, blankets, vases, paintings, among others.
Petroleum blue looks great on noble fabrics like silk or velvet, as the texture of these fabrics reinforces the sense of elegance and color comfort. A tip: there are several shades of petroleum blue that can confuse you when choosing paint or decorative objects. These tones vary between light and dark, so the recommendation is not to just follow the color reference marked on the packaging, note if that is the tone you are looking for. When in doubt, look for Pantone’s teal palette.
