Blue and Green Living Room Decor Ideas

Hello friends! I’m thrilled that you can join me today as I host the Styling for Spring home tour. Today, 5 other talented bloggers will be joining me as we share our homes all styled for spring. The tour will continue until Friday, so be sure to check back each day for lots more amazing spring decorating inspiration. If you’re stopping by from Farmhouse For Five – welcome! I’m so glad to have you! If you’ve never been here before, feel free to learn more about me and then follow me on Instagram where I share lots of inspirational home decor and dish out some great decorating advice.

Let’s get straight to the reason you’re here: My living room! This spring I’ve reverted back to my usual blues but I’ve added some navy blue and green into the mix, too. I love the vibrancy of a bright pop of green at this time of the year. It really lifts my spirits and makes me excited for warmer weather to come.

I have not purchased anything new for this little living room refresh but instead dug through all my throw pillows and accessories to come up with this color scheme. I love decorating with navy blue and green and if you do too, hopefully you’ll pick up some ideas while you’re here!

Navy blue and green throw pillows

Mixing textures, colors and patterns is such a fun way to add interest to a space. Even if you prefer a monotone color palette (say all blues), it won’t be boring as long as you vary those elements. The pillows by the way are all Target finds, except for the solid blue ones with are from HomeGoods.

Tulips just scream spring to me. They are my all-time favorite flower and I don’t discriminate when it comes to their color, either. Sometimes I pick white ones, some other times pink but when I have this blue and green color scheme going on, the bright sunny yellow has the perfect contrast. Don’t these make you feel so happy?!

On the other side of our couch we have a simple console table that stores photo albums, a basket of the baby’s bibs & burp clothes for easy access. There’s also a couple of baskets so that I can quickly scoop up toys off the floor and out of sight. It’s great that we have a playroom down in the basement where 90% of the toys live, but inevitably some will end up on in the living room so it’s important that they have a home that’s not the floor!

Shibori artwork DIY

This simple textile art is one of m favorite DIYs ever. It’s just fabric that has been framed but the blue along with the warm tones of the frames really finished off this corner of our living room. I was inspired to make them after I saw a crazy expensive version at Pottery Barn and knew I could make the same thing for a fraction of the price.

This fireplace is on my (never ending) list of projects for this year. Once the baby is stable enough walking, the bumpers will come off and then we can decide what to do. I’ve considered painting it white or tiling it but I’m not sure which direction we will go yet. The mantel also has to be replaced since it’s strangely short and possibly replaced with something a bit more rustic.

I’m always  moving things around on my bookcase. Usually  it’s because I stole something for another area of the house! If you’re looking for some simple tips on styling your own bookcases, I’ve an entire post dedicated to the topic.

Do you see that faux Fiddle Leaf Fig in the corner? He is one of my favorite purchases ever. He’s been all over the house but that corner is my favorite spot for him. There’s nothing like a pop of greenery to lift a boring corner.
