Certain colors just seem to go together, and designers know that the contrasting darkness of brown will make all colors of blue stand out. That contrast shows in the brilliantly conceived blue-on-brown bedding designs you’ll see here. From paisley swirls to unique floral designs to brown and blue argyle, these complementary shades just belong together. These are gender-neutral colors that can still evoke an either masculine or feminine feel depending on the bedding design details and individual shades of brown and blue. It’s easy to build a contemporary, stylish decor motif around these colors.
Brown is a hard color to
use with some other shades. As a neutral color, it can be set against vibrant shades to prevent them from overwhelming the visual space. Its neutral effect is precisely why blue and brown work so well together. Blue can be a vibrant, saturated color while still exuding an electric coolness that creates a soothing feel.
Aqua blue against chocolate brown is a reliable standby for designers trying to create a sense of earthiness mixed with a fresh dash of color. These are elemental colors — earth and water — that seem to have a primal effect upon the psyche. Designers have created blue and brown bedding sets that maximize contrast with stark designs in just two shades, but powerful textured effects can be created just as easily by experimenting with bedding that has multiple shades of brown and blue.
The designs you see here range from the simple to the ornate. Blue floral designs on a brown background are a stunning exhibit of contrast, but the truly elegant designs are the inspired vector graphic designs that blend geometric complexity, using the contrast between light and dark in an organic way. Any of these blue-on-brown bedding pieces are ideal for inspiring color choices and overall themes for your stylish bedroom.
