BOLDER blues

Add drama to your kitchen with rich and in­tense shades of in­digo and navy

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Kitchen Trends -

While wa­tery tones of blue are the main­stay of bath­room de­sign, you can be more dar­ing in kitchens. A heavy dose of navy or in­digo adds a sense of depth, while clearly defin­ing the space – ideal in open-plan homes. The blues should be dra­matic and deep (shades that Yves Klein would ap­prove of ) and aim for vari­a­tions in tone, with ei­ther ir­reg­u­lar fin­ishes or a mix of ma­te­ri­als in the same shade. Flashes of bright white and metallics shine par­tic­u­larly well when backed by blue.
