Blue Hues, The Perfect Choice For A New Home
Moving into a new home is an exciting prospect, especially when it comes to starting afresh with your interior design scheme. Here's why we are recommending blue hues...
Choosing a theme that runs throughout the main living areas of the home will provide a continuity of style – and can be economical when it comes to paint and wallpaper purchasing. This year is set to be dominated by seafaring shades; from bright, aquamarine hues to brooding royal navy blue, this colour palette is surprisingly versatile and perfect for a new home.
When combined with plush sofas, warm-toned woods and striking stripes, a blue colour scheme gives a stylish nod to the nautical, without being over the top. Think urban elegance rather than shabby chic.
The plush velvet finish of the Azure sofa and chair from Barker and Stonehouse offers a sumptuous feel and is a great starting point for incorporating a deep blue into your living room.
Offset the pop of colour that the chair and sofa provide with neutral, wooden accessories, giving the subtle vibe of beach house cool. A perfect example is the Atlas tripod floor lamp, its teakwood base and vanilla shade provides a cool, contemporary feel, as does this coffee table with its sturdy, chunky shape and matt finish.
No nautical theme is complete without stripes, and wallpaper provides a great way to incorporate them into a room. The style and conformity will look great offset with the bold geometric pattern of the Viso rug, providing a visually arresting look.
With the variety of shades on offer in the blue colour palette, it’s definitely a hue that’s here to stay as an interior design trend, so it makes the perfect choice as the colour scheme for your new home.
