Feeling Blue

By | October 25, 2013

Whilst scrolling through Pinterest recently, I noticed that there was a whole lot of dramatic inky blue showing up in my feed. inky blue styling Image sources:: Top Left Top with Cinnamon |Top Right Image source unknown |  Bottom Left The Setting Takes Time | Bottom Right Etsy

I love the darkness and depth that you get from deep blue. Not to be confused with the vivid blue that once adorned my bathroom, the darkest hues are elegant, mysterious and calming. Inky Blue_Kitchen_Dining

It can be used in all rooms; combined with natural woods in the kitchen or reflecting against copper in the dining room. The versatile colour adds richness to living rooms and depth to bathrooms and would suit both a period and modern setting.

Whilst grey is one of my all time colours to decorate with, I appreciate that it can lack the depth and character of an inky blue. I’m currently exploring how I can add a splash of indigo to my house and if I was to go dark and moody I’m pretty sure I’d be picking one from this sultry palette.

How about you? Do you have any dark and mysterious rooms in your home?

    Yes! recently painted our bedroom ‘downpour’ blue- it’s the most color I’ve ever had in my house and I love it. It changes throughout the day and reflects light so beautifully!
