Beautiful blue hues

Beautiful blue hues

Create a harmonious interior that’s ideal for spring with fresh shades of blue. Blue is a vibrant colour that commands attention and adds a striking backdrop especially when used on walls and paintwork. Decorating with blue is an easy way to update neutrals in any room in your home – our Ideal Home Show Shop top tip is to add in bold patterns and crisp white details for a contemporary twist. 


Blue and white

When decorating with blue you should choose just one shade and work within hues of that colour to ensure the look doesn’t become too over-bearing within the room. Adding in white details will also help tone down the look as well as keeping it fresh and modern. Pair white-painted furniture in modern shapes with natural wood or wicker to prevent the look becoming too stark. Adding in different textures is vital – team a natural linen sofa with smooth painted wood and sisal flooring.


Patterns and prints

Geometric patterns and prints are bang on-trend right now and here at the Ideal Home Show Shop we think they're a great way to add funky detail to a blue and white interior. Complement the scheme with contemporary accessories by mixing and matching patterns, prints and designs in various sizes on soft furnishings like cushions, as well as on lampshades and vases. Picture frames are a great way to break up an expanse of colour on your wall. Create a focal point in the room with a painted white shelving unit with a gorgeous display of a handful of accessories with different print or pattern styles.
