There's no doubt about the color blue's relaxing and soothing effect. In fact, it has been a go-to color for many homeowners that it's no longer surprising to see a bedroom with hints of blue and even a kitchen with blue-painted cabinets. To make your space a cut above the rest, you may want to take a chance on a lighter shade like powder blue. A bit cooler, it blends well with pastel shades and white—allowing you to play around and experiment when it comes to decorating.

Achieve a youthful yet sophisticated haven with these photos as your pegs:

For a minimalist feel in the dining area, avoid a dull space by opting for powder blue dining chairs paired with a white table. Keep things interesting by displaying framed prints and a few decor pieces in varying colors.

While it's common to see light blue kitchen cabinets, you can differentiate your space by investing in brass fixtures and drawer pulls. These tiny details bring a touch of elegance in a country-inspired or shabby chic cooking area.

Those who want simple and subtle changes can start by repainting the front door (or all doors at home!) in a powder blue shade. This hue will stand out if you have white or neutral-colored walls. For an extra rustic appeal, bring in wooden pieces and elements like a bench or a distressed table in the foyer.

A walk-in closet will look and feel more spacious with powder blue cabinets and shelves. Complete it with a ghost chair or a comfy armchair and a chandelier for a classic touch. To keep the look streamlined, you may also want to keep and display your clothes according to color or type.

Complete an airy and welcoming powder blue bathroom by adding an elegant cream framed mirror, wall lamps, and a white cabinet for your extra toiletries. A vase filled with fresh blooms can also add a refreshing feel.
