Many of us may have had the pleasure to enjoy a white weekend, but now it’s back to work, for what is supposedly the gloomiest day of the year- Blue Monday. The weather is frightful, holidays and the summer seems all too far away and, well, it’s a Monday.
We think that blue has been given a bad name, and in fact it’s one of the most wonderful of colours, especially when it comes to decorating your house. So we’ve rounded up some of our favourite ‘Blue’ rooms that’ll make you swoon, and cheer your day right up.
If a blue room sounds a bit daunting for the colour-phobes amongst us, then adding a touch of colour through your window dressings is the way to go. Bring the colour around the room with accessories, such as cushions and ornaments to create a serene vibe.
Research shows that blue is the best colour for bedrooms since it promotes calmness, and this bedroom shows it beautifully. Build up a palette of similar tones, with the palest of hues offering an alternative to white.
For something a bit more sophisticated, go for the mediterranean theme. Deep blues against crisp white, with a touch of copper thrown in make the theme perfect for a mature space.
For the ultimate in country themes, duck egg wooden cupboards and a gorgeous Belfast Sink are the essential starting point. Make sure there’s a vase of fresh meadow flowers to hand and your haven awaits.
If a flat wall of colour isn’t quite the look for you, then add panelling in a majestic oxford blue shade. It’s also the perfect look for a library or home office, especially when mixed with plenty of natural wooden features.
