Blue is the New Black

Blue is the new black in interiors. Better than that, tones of blue have such timeless appeal it may well be one of the most universally appealing colour schemes you can try.

A strong blue theme in a room doesn’t need a lot of other colour. The impact of the mass colour is often stronger than anything that can be achieved by introducing contrast tones. The one exception to this is with flowers and greenery which can really pop against the blue.

Different shades and textures of blue make for an interesting room, while adding a neutral sofa or timber furniture can add depth to the look. White ceramics also brighten an otherwise darker room.

Once you have created your blue room base, the look can be adapted as you like to a nautical theme, traditional or as a backdrop to a blue and white china collection.

Many feel blue creates a positive psychological effect and evokes feelings of contentment and relaxation.

As always, our expert interior design team are happy and available to give you advice. Visit the Beadles showroom to discover how best to employ this stunning colour.
