The in­te­ri­ors world has re­cently seen shades of blue mak­ing a re­turn to our homes, which is why it’s been tipped as one of the hottest in­te­ri­ors colours for 2017.

I find blue to be a ver­sa­tile shade that gen­er­ates a va­ri­ety of moods in the home. Lighter tones are per­fect for adding a cool and calm­ing sense to a space, whilst deeper and more moody hues cre­ate a so­phis­ti­cated and stylish state­ment. Or for a truly dra­matic look, opt for a vi­brant teal or rich navy shades.

Con­sider the scale of your blue tone and if it will fea­ture as an ac­cent or as an all over bold scheme, as choos­ing the right colour will im­pact upon how you feel whilst re­lax­ing at home. For a sub­tler in­jec­tion of colour, a real favourite of mine is the tie dye cush­ion, or choose beau­ti­ful coloured glass­ware to add em­bel­lish­ment to the room.

Vel­vets are ideal for adding a sump­tu­ous feel to a space. Choose the Matthew Wil­liamson Min­nelli sofa, or the patch wool and cot­ton che­nille rug to cre­ate a fo­cal point. Or try up­dat­ing with wall­cov­er­ings and blue paints, from fea­ture walls to up­cy­cling tired old fur­ni­ture – of­ten a lick of paint is all that is re­quired to give any room a stylish blue update.

A colour that of­fers so many op­tions, blue works well in all ar­eas of the home, mak­ing it the per­fect so­lu­tion for up­dat­ing in­te­ri­ors in a won­der­ful shade that will be en­joyed year after year.
