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.

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.
