  • Blues command attention and will create a vibrant look – for a cohesive scheme, choose just one shade and work within hues of that colour.
  • Using blue is an easy way to update neutrals, but adding different textures is vital – team a natural linen sofa with smooth painted wood and sisal flooring.
  • Break up an expanse of wall with delicate, paper-cut artwork.
  • Use geometric prints and patterns in various sizes on soft furnishings.

Styling Tips

Pairing white-painted furniture with a hint of natural wood stops the look becoming too stark. Choose modern shapes to keep it current. 

Create a focal point by painting the back of a shelving unit in shades of blue and display just a handful of accessories with different print styles.

Easy Display

Add colour to neutral walls with canvases painted in tones ranging from cobalt to the palest of pastels. Use them alone or as a backdrop for accessories.

 

Custom Design

Use a mix of patterned cushions and add a personalised touch by adding a pom-pom trim.
