If you’re planning on refreshing your interior and updating your furniture this season, take inspiration from a palette of blues for the ultimate style statement.
Blue hues are having a moment right now, but are perennial enough to stand the test of time and never go out of style. Whether you choose dark tones, such as cobalt to inject drama into your home, or opt for striking teals to brighten a dark corner, blue is a truly versatile colour that works in most spaces. But with such a wide spectrum of shades available, how do you choose the right blue?
Discover our beautiful blue-hued picks and choose the perfect shade for your home.
Add a subtle touch with soft blues
If you’re looking to introduce subtle colour into your home without overwhelming the space, consider a serene and tranquil shade.
Soft blue shades are perfect for brightening a room and creating a feeling of more space. From duck egg to dusky blue, soft shades work well with Scandi-inspired furniture and pale wood. They’re also a great way to create a coastal vibe and can be paired with shades of grey and white for a bright and airy look.
Introduce shades of blue to a room with soft furnishing such as a rug. The Rocco rug‘s geometric design ensures it is bang on-trend, as well as suiting schemes with a vintage or Nordic influence. Its soft blue shade adds a hint of colour, but is light enough to be paired with a variety of hues. Place in a bedroom or living room to add softness and comfort underfoot.
Alternatively, add a beautiful finishing detail with scatter cushions in a soft blue shade, such as the Luxe cushion. Updating your cushions is often the easiest way to refresh your space and is affordable too.
For a more traditional look, consider a classically shaped chair updated with a subtle blue hue. The Pinter armchair is a perfect example that is sure to brighten and uplift any space.
Make a statement with bold teal shades
To make a statement, be brave and opt for bright, bold shades of blue such as teal and colbalt. Combined with sumptuous fabrics such as velvet, these daring shades work perfectly on accent pieces and accessories to add real wow-factor to a space.
A bright blue sofa will add a fabulous focal point to a room and create impact in larger spaces. The Harrington Large Chaise Sofa is a fantastic choice for those looking for something a little different. This contemporary design features a luxurious velvet finish in a bold blue shade to deliver high impact.
For a smaller statement, try a bold blue accent chair or footstool. The Ellonby Small Button Stool is a great choice. Upholstered in a daring teal tone, this stool is a stylish piece that can be admired for years to come. It can also be placed in a bedroom, alongside a dressing table for a look that exudes glamour.
For a quick and simple way to add colour to a space, don’t forget accessories. Brighten up neutral walls with statement wall art or an eye-catching clock such as the Minimal Wall Clock.
Keep it chic with navy blue hues
If bold blue isn’t your thing and you’re looking for something a little more muted, consider shades of navy which will help to create a chic and sophisticated vibe.
Navy is a bolder alternative to grey, but softer than black, making it a great neutral alternative. Deep and decadent, navy is guaranteed to inject a sense of drama into any room and works perfectly in every space, from small to large homes, contemporary to period properties.
For the perfect navy piece, the Renato sofa is upholstered in navy blue velvet and features a truly timeless design with an angular shape, sloped arms and chic vintage-inspired button back detailing. Another stylish choice is the the Lise chair; perfect for modern interiors, its contemporary design boasting an air of elegance.
Navy pairs beautifully with metallic accents such as lamps and accessories for a luxe look. Get the look with the Moonstruck cushion which features an abstract gold print.
