The Blue Boom

04 Mar 2020

Design Trends

Pantone’s much anticipated ‘Colour of the Year’ is ‘Classic Blue’. A deep, dependable colour, it reflects our need for faith and trust as we enter a decade of immense and disruptive change. Brace yourself for the blue boom.

See Blue

A classic blue TV feature wall creates a strong focal point in a neutral living room and adds a regal touch. In this simple, elegant space, the recurring motif of gold borders feels a little bit Grecian and a little bit Victorian while effortlessly pulling everything together.

Brown and Blue

Blue with a tinge of green teams beautifully with wood and light, warm, earthy colours. The teal feature wall in this open-concept living area defines the dining space with a pop of colour in an otherwise neutral space.

Blue Cue

The blue skies framed by floor-to-ceiling windows serve as a visual cue for the blue-toned colour scheme within this open-concept living space. The deep turquoise blue in the living room gives way to a cooler, lighter tint in the dining room, creating a serene and comfortable space that is integrated yet subtly separated according to function.

Kitchen Blues

While blue is notoriously not a food colour, it looks great in a kitchen – and on tableware for that matter. (Think Willow Pattern plates) In this modern galley kitchen, the crisp, strong contrast of deep blue and white creates a cooking environment that feels bright and fresh. Patterned black and white floor tiles add visual interest and a splash of green livens things up.

Blue in the Bedroom

A lighter shade of classic blue, with a whisper of grey, creates a soothing environment for a master bedroom that is not too masculine and not too feminine. In this colonial inspired room, white wooden wainscoting creates a gentle contrast with the blue painted walls and doubles as a bedhead.

Electric Blue

There’s more than one way to ‘paint’ a room. The stairway to this second-storey bedroom is painted with light – coloured LED lights to be exact. It’s an increasingly popular way to change the complexion of a room with the flick of a switch, literally.
