Make a statement

From striking sapphire to cobalt, brilliant blues will effortlessly create an impact. Perfect for adding life to your favourite reading nook or living space, blue catches the eye with its friendly tone. Whether you opt to make your blue statement with a feature wall or bold furniture, blue calms spaces that are often busy. Bold blue paired with natures forms make a stunning partnership so consider a patterned wallpaper statement wall or organic inspired lighting to bring your space to life. The beauty of bold blues is you can go as big, or as small, as you would like!

Cool, calm, and collected

A lighter toned blue can be treated as a fun neutral. Using baby blues or cerulean tones as your base, you can layer up similarly natured neutrals to create a minimalist, scandi-inspired haven – think wooden tones and organic texture. If you’re envisioning a pastel palace, opt for a small rainbow of soft hued colours and repeat them across your walls and homeware. This will help create harmony in your space, whilst it still feeling fun and full of colour. The adaptability of delicate blues make it well suited to fresh spaces that crave tranquillity, such as self-care sanctuaries and bedrooms.

Pairs well with… Soft blue and brass make a dreamy duo – exuding velvety comfort. Flourishes of brass amongst your lighting and homeware will add touches of luxury to your home making the Stem Lighting Range and Loer Pendant perfect additions.
