Do you ever look at your walls and have the urge to make a drastic change? I know that I do this all the time…
If that’s you are you’re looking to mix up your decor at home this year, then you might be interested to see how the latest colour of the year could work in your home.
I always pay attention to what kind of colours are ‘in’ and being a fan of blue, I was really pleased to see that the 2020 Pantone Colour of the Year is Classic Blue (a navy shade). I know that it’s already a very popular colour in people’s homes, so it’s great that it’s still very much on trend this year.
Navy blue provides the perfect amount of contrast for interiors and exteriors in both traditional and modern style homes, meaning that it can pretty much work in any house. It’s simply up to you how much you want to add to your home and whether you’re brave enough to daub dark paint on your walls!
Go bold with your kitchen cabinets
Blue kitchens are still a big thing and it’s not hard to see why. They look so polished against white surfaces and they work really well alongside wood too. Shaker kitchens still remain a really popular choice and if you dare to go a little bold, then blue units make for a really striking look in your kitchen.
If you have an island then statement pieces like these bar stools make a great addition and add some texture too.
Pink always works well with blue and there is a nod towards more earthy tones that emulate plastered walls. The gold fixtures also finish the look completely and bring the tones together.
You can still keep the walls light and opt for a piece of furniture such as this sideboard. It’ll really stand out in your hallway or in your living room and features a great geometric design too.
Go for spaces with natural light
If you feel that blue is too dark for the main rooms in your home then you could consider using blue if you have a aluminium lantern roof that will get lots of natural light. It’s the perfect place and colour to partner with lots of plants and rattan furniture. You’ll create that cosy feel but also benefit from the light overhead.
Indulge your living space
You can of course go completely bold with blues of all shades and can easily incorporate shades of green and gold too. This will make your lounge space feel very tranquil.
Or simply have your sofa as your focal point, while keeping everything else fairly neutral.
If you’re not brave enough to splash deep blue all over your walls, then you can add accents to your room in the form of soft furnishings and artwork.
What are you thoughts on having blue in your home? Do you feel it’s too much, or do you love a bold shade of blue?
