Copy the BlueForest.xml file into the /colors directory underneath your IDEA installation folder (or the user profile IntelliJ folder, depending on your OS). If you are on OSX/linux or using cygwin on Windows, you can also clone this git repository into a directory of your choice and use the script to install BlueForest and the script to copy back changes you made in IDEA.

After you have installed the color scheme restart IDEA and select BlueForest in Preferences/Editor/Colors&Fonts.
