Get the #blues – #interiordesign

September 18, 2012

Spring is definitely upon us here in Australia and the weather is starting to warm up, so it seems like a good time to reinvigorate ourselves and our homes with a splash of colour…and what could be a better colour choice than blue!

Blue is such a great colour choice because, just about everyone loves blue!

It’s a colour that’s popular with both men and women. It’s calming, cooling and restful and it’s not a mistake that many major companies choose to utilise the colour blue in their logo designs.

Below are some great ways that you can introduce blue into your home:


Mathilde Dots Sofa


Niche Modern Pendant


Butterfly Effect Rug by Designer Rugs – love this design!


This wallpaper by Znak is great because it’s a perforated tear-off wallpaper that you can apply yourself! It also gives you the ability to get really creative and develop your own design.

If you’re feeling really adventurous you could invest in an artwork like ‘Blue Girl’ by David Bromley (below).


Blue is just about perfect as a colour choice, although something to bear in mind when decorating with blue is that if overused it can feel a little cold and even depressing, so as with any colour utilise it carefully and perhaps stick with a few accent pieces and you really can’t go wrong.

This interior image via is a great example of how to decorate well using blue.
