Ways to Incorporate Classic Blue into Your Home
March 05, 2020
Classic blue is an elegant and timeless colour. It is a shade that is known for exuding an aura of sophistication while adding tranquility to a space. It is no wonder then that the Pantone Colour Institute has declared classic blue as the colour of the year 2020. Each year designers, artists, and architects look forward to this announcement and draft trend-worthy plans across textiles, paints, furniture, and design. This year’s colour is exciting and provides tremendous scope for interior design, particularly home interiors.
Here are some ways in which you can add a touch of this soothing shade to your home:
Go Big and Bold
If you have been waiting for the perfect time for a complete overhaul of your home interiors, then now is when you can go all in with classic blue. Transform your living room with bold sofa sets upholstered in this stylish colour. Opt for classic blue cabinets in the kitchen, which will provide the cooling tone required when you are whipping up awesome dishes. Enhance your bathroom with nautically-toned tiles in this shade. Enliven your balcony with blue furniture.
Experiment with Subtle Highlights
Are you more understated in your style? Then go for subtle hints of classic blue interspersed across your home. Accent one wall of your living room with classic blue paint or wallpaper with fine floral or geometric designs in this shade. Add little pops of classic blue around the home with side tables, flowers, throw cushions, rugs, curtains, curios, and even some blue artwork.
Pair Your Blue Love
Classic blue is a very versatile shade and pairs beautifully with a number of other colours such as silver, yellow, gray, light blue, and even pastels. Set boldly-coloured furniture against the backdrop of an accent wall in classic blue. This dynamic shade is also a perfect complement to brick and wood design walls, providing a ‘cool, edgy, and sophisticated’ look.
Get Creative with Geometry
Use geometry to bring out the gorgeousness of classic blue. Personalise it by adding geometric textures or designs. You can achieve a similar look even with classic blue wallpaper in geometric designs, which is quite easy to source. Geometric designs add a brand new dimension to a room and enliven it further. Opt for throw cushions, and rugs or carpets in classicblue geometric patterns. Similar designs for fluffy bath towels and mats will add coziness to yourbathroom.
Jazz Up Your Fav Space
Do you have a favourite room? Perhaps it's your bedroom or maybe even a study-cum-library. Maybe you just have a favourite corner in the living room. Bring a sense of style, serenity, and depth to this space with the brilliance of classic blue. You can choose to paint the whole room or space blue and pair with complementary accent furniture such as bookshelves, curios, artwork, curtains, and rugs. Or you can choose to do the reverse.
There are endless ways to celebrate your love for classic blue. Splash the colour across your whole home, add a dash of style and elegance with subtle accents and designs, or bring calm and depth to your favourite nook. Classic blue’s versatility and complementary characteristic makes it a popular colour to experiment with. Let this royal shade bring out the designer in you.
