Summer blues

Whether you’re dreaming of the vivid teal tones of the Mediterranean or the dramatic white-blue splashes of the Atlantic, blue is most definitely back. The ‘Summer Blues’ trend is full of life and intrigue. Inspiration is taken from the seascapes but without any of the usual kitsch of coastal style. This fresh blue palette, where several shades are used together, works best when paired with whites and greys. Simple denim-flecked carpets, weathered woods and stone-effect luxury vinyl work best to complement this look.
