Color Trend: Peacock Blue

It looks as though there’s a new interior design trend in town, and it goes by the name of Peacock Blue. One quality that draws designers to this color is its friendly, unexpected energy. Certain tones of peacock blue (the ones that lean less green) can act as a glamorous, jewel-toned neutral. Check out how the accent wall above works with both warm and cool hues as well as a couch that’s a different shade of blue altogether.

Colored kitchen cabinets have been on the rise for a few years now, and I have to say that the peacock blue in this kitchen is a real star. It’s a bit riskier than the navy trend that’s been around for a while now, but it’s also more unique and not likely to be in your neighbors’ kitchen. Peacock blue will make its own statement, whether your aesthetic is mid-century modern, farmhouse, or traditional.

When peacock blue shows its face through tiling I can’t help but feel a bit of a Moroccan vibe. The tiled half wall above doesn’t feel overwhelming or too dark, and it doesn’t make this small bathroom space feel claustrophobic either. The white and light grey it was paired with help to keep it in check while still allowing the vibrant shade to be the star. Pro Tip: Don’t you love the way that shower curtain puddles? If you’re having trouble finding one that you love, don’t hesitate to look in the drapery department.

Maybe a more subtle use of color is your style because when you use it you want it to really pop. If that’s the case, I’d recommend either introducing some peacock blue bedding into the picture or adding a piece of furniture. A couch, upholstered dining chair cushions, or even a small footstool would do the trick nicely. Of course one of our favorite ways to add color and pattern to any space is through a show-stopping floor rug – here are six of my favorite peacock blue-hued rugs below!
