Singing the blues

bird cage with blue


Pale, icy blues have to be one of my favourite colours in the home. They are so calm and relaxed, elegant and fresh. Blues can be very cool so are helpful if you have a very sunny or warm room that needs cooling down, but they can be tempered by the use of a shot of warm colour as a highlight. I find this image very elegant and romantic – the different textures and shades work in perfect harmony. I love this shade of blue with dove grey.

The walls in this image are painted a much more turqoise, green shade of blue. The effect of this is to make it feel much warmer while the bright candlesticks bring the look to life.
