The Blues

by Creative Style Interiors


Did you know that blue is considered ‘the world’s favourite colour’? That’s because it is versatile and timeless, and can suit almost every décor style, from classic Hamptons to contemporary. At present, blue is a major trend colour for the home with plenty of accessories available in hues of navy, cobalt, lapis lazuli, aqua, turquoise and teal.



If you think navy is too ‘staid and old-fashioned’ for your home, there are some great ways to update the look to suit a contemporary style:


Introduce metallics such as chrome, bronze and copper

If you prefer to keep your home elegant and a little more classic:

Add to a white or cream scheme


Include patterns such as Willow Pattern, Toile or Ikat


Transitional/ Modern Classic


If you like a crossover from classic to contemporary, then a modern classic or transitional design scheme is for you. Here’s an example of how to use blue:

The pattern on this scatter cushion is classic, though the colours have made it look more contemporary through the addition of aqua to the royal blue and white scheme.
