feeling blue

Our latest colour crush? Blue. From a royal navy to a cheerful turquoise hue, this versatile colour looks beautiful whether you use it for flooring, walls or accessories. Inky shades will look oh-so-classy when contrasted against luxe gold accessories, or, if you’re after a calming ambience, mix a soothing mid-blue with off-whites and pastel pinks. Of course, we can’t not mention the nautical trend, which has become a stable in interiors over the years; add splashes of a vibrant red to really watch the blue pop.

Art deco is all about making a big statement. This iconic style screams glamour and sophistication, with bold colours, strong prints and striking furniture making up a timeless look that is big right now in interiors. Go bold with walls and furnishings, but opt for a simple and lighter carpet to avoid overwhelming the room.

Blue in a bathroom? How predictable you might say, but this is a new, modern take going into 2018. Mixing light and dark shades creates different focal points and looks dramatic when contrasted against the white in the room. Again, gold accessories add a flair to the room, but wicker details and fresh plants finish off this scheme perfectly. Ps: how cool does the denim effect floor look?

A fresh and bright blue is a great choice for a kitchen diner – what better way to kick start the day? With blue said to have a calming effect, going for a more vibrant hue may seem like a contradictory move, but it looks modern and eye-catching against whites and light wood furniture. Introduce small elements of green for added interest.
