- 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.
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.

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