home: trend [ blue ]

This year we have already seen an array of gorgeous colour entering our homes including, pinks, peaches and greens. One that hasn’t had its moment… until now, is blue.

Often seen as a cold colour or one that is associated with seaside styled rooms, blue works really well as a background or accent colour to other shades, creating a modern welcoming space.

We are seeing blue homeware all over, including lighting, sofas & armchairs and furniture.

For a dark moody room go dark blue on the walls with furniture in woods and add metalic accents for a glam feel [ why not include some punchy pink to add interest ]. If your thing is lighter and brighter, electric & royal blue look great against a white background.

Whatever your preferred shade, get on board with blue and give it a go!

As we know pink isn’t going anywhere this year and especially the pastel shades. We spotted this chair at Abigail Ahern and love it.

An advocate of all things dark, Abigail Ahern is now bringing hints of a brighter colour pallete to her online and Islington stores.

This shade of pink will work with so many other colours, and look just as well in a bright white room as a dark grey one.

Gone are the days when sofa beds looked like sofa beds, the extra chair in the corner of a room or in the office that just didn’t sit right with everything else!

With demand for adapatable furniture that looks good, and the fact that we want ease when pulling out a sofa bed for unexpected guests, rather than a hassle, brands have starting offering us much better products.
