Feeling Blue? We Are…July 2016
Blue is one of this years top trending colours. Appearing in shades from Dock Blue to Bone China Blue, the choices are endless! The Little Greene paint company have produced an entire colour chart for their extensive blue selection.
The colour blue, in any shade, has a calming effect and whether you have wallpaper or paint, it is relaxing and comforting. Little Greene’s Pale Wedgewood is a perfect example!
Painting or tiling your bathroom a pale blue colour like this creates a tranquil and peaceful environment, which is great for another one of this years interior design trends, creating a spa in the bathroom.
Woad is a Little Greene paint colour that is not too strong with a dustiness, making it not to overpowering. This colour is a perfect blend of a light and dark shade.
Most hues of blue blend well together, from stronger shades of more green like teal, through to rich navy’s. A great colour to accompany blue tones is a fabulous mustard yellow, even if its just in the lights!
Smalt is a rich, luxurious saturation of blue. It is slightly moody but dramatic and strong, although definitely not dull! Using solely this colour makes a huge statement in the room.
This Little Greene paint is called Old School Blue. This shade is a lighter blue mixed with tones of turquoise. This shade mixed with white is inviting and has a coastal air to it.
If you are to put blue in the kitchen and dining area its best to keep lighter or muted shades. Adding in different blue accessories always looks great and softens the overall interior design scheme.
Alternatively an all white colour scheme and a few hints of blue makes you home look fresh and inviting. Whether you go bold or just a few undertones, if you stick with this fabulous trend for 2016 you’ll be onto a winner.
If the darker shades of blue are too strong and heavy, there are plenty of lighter shades you can choose from if you wish to bring a touch of blue into your home. What are you waiting for, check out Little Greene’s paint collection and get painting!
