Hi Everyone, I know I am a bit late with jumping on the pantone colour of the year bandwagon, but it’s because I wanted to let all the hype die down before I done a blog about it. Now all of the manufacture’s know this is the colour of the year, there are some great pieces out there to buy, which will give you such an on trend talking point in your interiors.

Firstly, I need to say, I am a bit bias to classic blue, in fact, any shade of blue. It is my personal favourite colour and I do try to put it in, anywhere I can. The tones of classic blue have always been known for their calming attributes, when I think of blues, my brain automatically thinks of the sea, ocean, beach, water, rain… literally anything to do with water and I find all of them to be my relaxing/ stress relief key points (if only I lived near the beach!) Which in a way explains why I have blue as my accent colour in my bedroom, where I go to relax, de-stress before a good nights sleep, and then also in my office, where I to keep calm & (try) not to get stressed.

Below I have created two moodboards, one is how to incorporate furniture & decor into your interiors for this key trend. The other, is one of our colour moodboards, taken inspiration from a natural environment setting.

Now if you are on Instagram, as much as I am, you would of already seen the likes of Lydia Millen, who use dark blue in her home. Pictured in the image below from her grid (image is linked). The colour used here was Farrow & Ball – ‘Hague Blue’.

The above image of Stiffkey blue is the colour used in my office, along with ‘Elephants Breath’ to create a nice neutral & relaxed colour platte. That is how to corporate some classic blue elements into your interiors, whether you wish to go all out or only with a few key pieces. If you wish to have more information on any of the items in the moodboard, please do get in touch.

Until next time,
