Dulux has named Denim Drift as its Colour of the Year for 2017. This gorgeous shade of grey-blue is highly versatile and teams beautifully with contrasting and complementary shades. Find out how easy it is to use blue in your home.
In the kitchen, the classic combination of blue and white works perfectly for both traditional and contemporary interiors. Units painted in deep shades of blue provide the ideal backdrop for a pure white sink and blue and white patterned tiles
With a bathroom, you can really have fun with a nautical theme that has blue at its heart. Think back to your memories of holidays by the sea for some inspiration. Use the colours of the ocean such as deep blue and turquoise for the walls, and finish off with beach-inspired accessories.
To create a truly calming atmosphere for sleep, decorate your bedroom in shades of pale duck-egg blue. Choose bed linen in crisp white, chambray, stripes or check, and add a striped or patterned rug in blue and white.
Elegant living room
There’s nothing more sophisticated and elegant than a blue living room, and this is where you can introduce patterns to add interest to your walls. How about a beautiful pale blue wallpaper with a pretty bird design? Or try a deep blue upholstered sofa against a backdrop of cool cream.
In a bright room such as a conservatory which gets plenty of natural light, you can be adventurous and opt for a strong colour for those essential blinds instead of a standard neutral shade. Thomas Sanderson has plenty of beautiful colours to choose from in its conservatory blind collection. Teal blue works particularly well, providing a splash of colour and framing the windows perfectly.
