Here at The Little Styling Co you may have noticed we often use blue shades in our stylings. It’s safe to say that blue could be our trademark colour!
We regularly use shades of blues for a range of styles from country to coastal, to luxe and contemporary.
It is the perfect hue to create calmness, serenity and tranquility within a space.
This versatile colour has even been associated with promoting physical and mental relaxation. Knowing this benefit, why wouldn’t you want to introduce the colour to your adobe?!
Often drawing inspiration from the Hampton's trends in interiors, blue is certainly the go to colour to incorporate in your home. There is a vast range of shades and depths of blue in the colour spectrum - royal, sky, pastel and duckegg just to name a few. We like to create balance with other elements in a room when we are introducing blue into our colour scheme, whether it be through selected artworks and soft decor pieces such as cushions, coverlets, throws and accessories. A great way to start is to assess your artwork and incorporate a few select decorative pieces that reflect the blue shades displayed in your art.
If your art is bold and bright we recommend using soft hints of blue through your accessories and cushions and recommend the opposite combination if you have softer shades of blue in your art. This will ensure there is balance and there is not one depth of blue used throughout your home. We commonly add a bold block blue shade cushion against other printed or textured neutral coloured cushions. This creates a well balanced and harmonious look as well as interest and contrast in your space. See below two examples of how we pair together art and cushions using different shades of blue variations.
If you're seeking to make an interior statement, why not select a upholstered furniture piece such as a bedhead in your favourite blue hue. It is a daring move but if well executed it can be the talking piece of your room. If you choose to do this, the key is to keep it simple and use mostly neutral coloured cushions to ensure you don't "over-do" the blue hue within the room.
