’Tis the season for decorating with pastel-toned accents, and there’s no dreamier (nor spring-friendlier) hue than cool baby blue. Though Etsy declared the shade its 2021 Color of the Year, sky blue remains a classic and continues to provide designers with a soft pop of color that evokes the atmospheric beauty of wide open spaces after the storms have passed.
Searching for the perfect sky blue piece to incorporate into a room? From ceramic wall tiles to floral-print bedding, Business of Home presents seven items to try this season.
