Revving Up Home Decor With Red & Blue Accents
Monochrome home interiors are a sleek modern option, but adding in bright colour really revs up the energy and character of a space. Today were specifically looking at how contrasting red and blue accents balance each other out in a black, white, and grey home decor schemeas well as pump up the wow factor. Take a tour around a studio apartment with a blue accent lounge, red infused kitchen, and some quirky wall art, to see how to push the theme big and bold. Then, finish off with a family home thats alive with colourful focal areas that float in a tranquil sea of white and wood tone.

Our first red and blue accented home is a studio apartment thats characterised by oversized elements and concrete feature walls. In the lounge, a modern sofa strikes a line of electric blue behind a round coffee table on a circular area rug.
The concrete partition wall behind the modern sofa marks a divide between the lounge and kitchen.
Indoor plants are dotted around the layout, building height around linear furniture. Grey concrete planters complement the living room feature wall. A red slimline media unit stands out brightly against a geometric wall treatment.
Monochrome wall panels layer up to build a cozy bedroom scheme with light and shade. LEDs in the headboard wall trick the mind into thinking there is a window there.
Large dining pendant lights make a heavy display low over the island countertop. White woven kitchen bar stools lighten the look.
Cabinets across the one wall kitchen are knocked back in white; a prep space at the centre carves out a dark block of grey raw concrete.
Walking into the bathroom, a slick stripe of red flows around the modern bathroom vanity and the cistern wall.

Our second red and blue accented interior is a vibrant modern family home. Grey, white and natural wood elements provide the base for colourful hero pieces, like this bright red window seat and matching red soffit. Although not quite as colourful, the piece of cool cat furniture above the sofa definitely deserves a mention; its angular form and wood lining make it a piece of feline friendly art. An equally stylish little cat ladder means that the furry family member doesnt have to use the sofa or anyones head for a leg up.
The blue stripe is echoed in the kitchen on a horizontal plane. A small round dining table is visually anchored in place by a low hanging sculptural light fixture. See more dining room pendant lights.
Blue backing picks out a built in entryway seat in a white flooded hallway design.
On the other side of the blue carpeted area, a makeup table and vanity chair form a dressing area.
A cut out in the front of the bathroom vanity reveals a washing machine housed there. A tray of soap dispensers dress the top of the utility cupboard.
A Scandinavian style kids chair and table make a dinky dining spot for teddy bears.
In the kids decor scheme, the chevron floor continues upward to form a flowing feature wall.
