The colour blue is one of the most popular choices requested to our interior designers for a room scheme. It can add depth and harmony, it can be fresh and modern and it can be warm and welcoming. There are so many different shades of blue and all bring their own individual feeling to a room, and look fabulous used together.

So let us sing its praises and show you how to use the colour blue in all its different guises, to add flair and interest to any room.

MOODY BLUES

Living Room: Lamorran Corner sofa

Blue is commonly associated with harmony, a desirable concept to introduce into a family home. In this living room you can see that several shades of blue, both light and dark, all work well together. Our grand corner Lamorran sofa seems perfectly harmonious in this soft blue, with a blue-striped, bound-edged rug. Continue the theme with a selection of scatter cushions.

SUMMERTIME BLUES

Dining Room - Tresco Dining Table and Chairs

Nothing looks better in a sunny dining room than the colour blue. Reflecting the blue of the sky, this dining room will remind you of Mediterranean holidays, sun and sea. The Tresco dining room furniture has a beautiful oval oak table and the contemporary chairs can actually be covered in a wide selection of bright and muted colours in both wool and leather. Here we have chosen a selection of blues and greys to go together to make a serene environment for dining.

YOUR BLUE ROOM

Artists such as Renoir and Van Gogh used shades of blue not just to depict nature, but to create moods and emotions. We think blue is the perfect colour for a calm and serene living room. The British-made Hobbs chairs shown in this music room are a perfect example of how to achieve beauty with quality and simplicity. 

ELEPHANT TALK

Trafalgar sofa

The stunning elephant fabric used on the trafalgar sofa is Mandir Denim, with the coordinating Safir Denim on the scatters. Denim blue never goes out of fashion. The eastern and elephant theme is continued with the accessories.
