We have seen pastels popping up in fashion and interiors in a big way over the last five years. Different shades of colors always flow in and out of home decor trends, BUT one that has particular staying power in Chicago Color Interior Design Trends is Powder Blue.

Some might consider this chalky hue a safe alternative to all the grey out there and really respond to powder blue when it’s the statement color in the room!

It’s a bold and (often) beautiful move to paint a ceiling or moldings in a color other than white, but as you can see, powder blue can really work in many different settings. We naturally respond to a blue ceiling because the sky is blue, and taking the saturation down to a powdery blue hue adds an element of sophistication.

Chicago interior designers are willing to go for painted molding or millwork! They consider where it will start and stop and how it mixes in with traditional white molding. You can see both the powder blue door frame and the white crown molding in this shot, and it looks so good together! When considering a light blue paint color always go more grey than you think to avoid it looking too baby blue. Really good soft blues have some black in them to temper the intensity, and Chicago interior designers also like when they go slightly blue-green as well!

A few of Chicago’s interior designers very favorite soft blue hues are:

There have been lots of navy blue kitchens in the past few years in Chicago but it’s exciting to see powder blue popping up in kitchen cabinets, stoves, hoods and tile as a brighter alternative. The soft color really shines in a kitchen setting when combined with marble, wood and metal.
