Oh Whats This
INSPIRATION & TRENDS 11 Sep 2017 Rachael OWT

There’s nothing new about dusky blue, it’s just moved out of the nursery zone and into the rest of our homes with a stylish bang. When I read that this was the new hue for 2018, I was a little smug as 3 months ago I just had to paint our wardrobes in Barbados blue, (see here) and nothing could stop me!

WHY DUSKY BLUE IS DREAMY

The blue hue is dusky and dreamy and if you’ve loved and still love pink velvet, (always) then you’ll be crushing on this colour too. Bring this blue shade in through furniture, textiles, or be bold and paint the walls. Just remember to style with bold accessories so it doesn’t look too wishy washy.

Take a look at these inspiring blue interiors and you could be convinced that this dusky blue hue is for you.

If you feel like painting the walls blue is a little on the risky side you can style a neutral space with statement light blue furniture like this stunning room above. But i you really want to be bold…

Next up, Jessica Alba’s living room is the perfect example of balancing light blue with stronger colours. The black and red give it a bold edge, well done to our favourites, Consort Design for creating this gorgeous space.

We also love this blue corner with matching artwork. Complementing the baby blue with a stronger blue hue will really pack some punch.

This living room uses dusky blue curtains and textiles to balance the greener walls.

Blue velvet looks so sumptuous in a dark room like this one:

You can’t go wrong with a blue velvet sofa like this one:

Blue is the perfect colour for an extremely luxurious dressing room (house envy) like this one:

And this one…

Lastly, pairing blue with brass is a great way to balance the colour and make it stand out. Like these light blue curtains:
