However, one colour in particular has come out on top  – Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball. We’ve put together some Hague Blue decorating inspo to kickstart your next painting project .

Contemporary kitchen


Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball is officially the most popular colour for a kitchen in the UK with 8,760 annual searches. Be inspired by Angie from @somethingbluehome and pair your blue kitchen with brass fixtures and a gorgeous quartz worktop. The unique thing about Hague Blue is that it looks completely different depending on the level of the light in the room at a particular time, so you’ll constantly be wowed by your coloured kitchen!

Blue bathroom


Blue is a staple colour for the bathroom and has been for a long time, evoking images of the sea and nautical themes. Bring your bathroom into 2020 with a splash of Hague Blue. @carasuthers bathroom is utterly gorgeous, with a roll top bath, rustic wooden touches and a darker colour palette, thanks to her choice of wall and floor coverings.

Luxury living room


Don’t be scared of a darker paint colour even if you’re working with a smaller space. However, if you want to create a grand look that oozes luxury, take a leaf out of Fiona’s book from @seasidevictorianhome. Leave your living room looking fresh and bright by leaving your ceiling and skirting boards painted white to elevate your space.

Inky bedroom


Revealed to be the second most popular paint colour for the bedroom, just behind Sapphire Salute by Dulux, Hague Blue in the bedroom looks fresh and is beautifully calming. Beverley from @the_boarshead has added wall panelling to her blue feature wall, which adds another layer of intricacy and detail.
