This year we have been working with blue shades through a range of products and trends, it’s safe to say we know how to take that colour tone in many directions. Opting for a darker shade in a space adds drama and impact, but with the right lighting it can also be made to feel warm and cosy.
Keep it fresh
Mix and match cabinets is another way to keep the look fresh and not go down the moody hues look. Copper key features such as tap design works with this colour.
Don’t want to darken a room too much? The same effect can be achieved by painting halfway up a wall as in this living room. You can still get the impact whilst keeping it fresh.
Take it moody
Dark blues work particularly well in classic, panelled interiors such as period properties with grand fireplaces and dramatic, high ceilings. This space can carry colour!
The kitchen (above) has dramatic, dusky blue cupboards which are on-trend this year. We’ve designed several sets for deep blue kitchens so keep an eye out. You can either go deep and moody, or add bold colour to offset the blue.
