Deck out your home in an array of blue hues to get a fresh, breezy, yet sophisticated coastal theme happening. A touch of blue, spliced through your home can be elegant, soothing, powerful or cheerful. And, it goes with so many other colours, great with crisp white, moody with greys and charcoals, but our favourite is ‘blocked’ with burnt orange! We have four fabulous ways to maximise this colour with subtle perfection.

Coastal blues
Transform a crisp neutral room into a plush, calming retreat by bringing a splash of the sea indoors. Combine warm textured sofas, statement coffee tables and beach inspired ornaments like bleached coral and stressed timber trays, to give your home a contemporary beachside, vogue twist.

Accents of Blue
A contemporary home can still have a unique and fabulous boho look about it by using subtle accents of dusty blue. It’s a great way to keep classic white, eternally in vogue. Blue hues blend in very well with wooden, cane and sea grass baskets or rugs. Ornate, Balinese mirrors and pops of living green colour, bring any room to life and add dimension to the area.

Blue Crush
Splashes of indigo blue with an abundance of natural light, creates a harmonious and peaceful aesthetic, especially in the bedroom. Use pillows and throw rugs to add depth and warmth to the space and finish off with theme coloured art work or even a feature wall to give your room that royal pizzazz.

Dinner Blues
Blue accents work well in any room of the home and create a relaxing visual, so why not use the moody blues in a place we spend much of our time - the kitchen and dining room. It’s a colour that works so well on every level and is a great counterpoint to classic white. Accessorise with napkins, pitchers and chopping boards…the sky’s the limit here!
