Blue for boys and pink for girls, right? Here, we think boys and girls can have any colour they like. And we especially like blue for girls. Blue is a beautiful calming colour that isn’t just for boys rooms.

There are so many amazing shades of blue, from soft pastels to dark petrol blues. When it comes to blue, there really is something for every taste.  You can use a combination of lots of different blue shades or stick to your favourite one. We are especially loving the richness of the deep petrol blues in the room above. Whatever shades you choose, you will end up with a serene and beautiful room for a girl.

Here are some beautiful girls rooms in very different shades of blue to inspire you:

We love the dramatic use of blue in this room.  If you do want to go for lots of blue, painting lots of the furniture in different shades of blue is a great way to do this.

The soft blues in this girls nursery are so beautiful and serene. We’re loving the two-tone colour blocked walls and the hint of deeper blue added with the table.

We’re loving the moody grey-blues in this little girls room. If we had to choose a favourite shade of blue it would be these kinds of tones. They bring a sophistication to a kids room, while at the same time creating a really cozy space.

If brighter colours are your thing, why not try a turquoise blue? This blue wall looks so striking and we love the unexpected mix with the deep maroon.

What’s your favourite shade of blue for a girls room?
