January Blues

Blue is one of my favourite colours for its versatility and broad range of shades. You can never really go wrong with a strong navy, deep turquoise or subtle pastel and a combination of all three might even work too.

I find that blue will compliment most other colours if used in the correct way- perhaps a splash of blue on your chairs or a blue throw on your bed. On my recent journeys around some beautiful homes I have collated together the best ways blue hues have been used.

Duck Egg and Turquoise


Team duck egg blue, turquoise and whites together for a crisp fresh look that will brighten a room and bring some depth to your interior space. Get the look for less:

  • Wool Head board – ‘Arran’ from The Head Board workshop
  • Ruffle duvet- ‘Flamenco duvet set’ from Look Again
  • Moon Pillow- French Grey Interiors from Not on the Highstreet
  • Rose Fairy lights- Argos Home
  • Duck Egg throw- Fable bedding from Bedeck


  • Cherub duck egg throw- Coast and Country Interiors
  • White cushions- Kylie at Home from Debenhams

For the bathroom why not try some duck egg blue towels. Orla Kiely has some fabulous prints in a range of blue hues. Perfect! This ‘Stem’ print is a must.




Add a splash of colour to your room by adding a feature piece of furniture. How about this gorgeous upholstered coffee table which adds focus to an otherwise neutral room. You’ll find a few ottoman upholstered coffee tables on Wayfair.



Teal is a really grown up colour and will add elegance and charm to a room. Here Teal has been used in the kitchen diner which I love. I like to call these rooms ‘hard’ rooms as there Β are limited areas for soft furnishings but hear the space has been brought to live with colour and style. Get the look:

  • Teal chairs- Baker and Stonehouse
  • Feather Wallpaper- Wallpaper direct
  • White laquer table- Great furniture trading company

I love this gorgeous Scion print which comes in two colour ways and has a subtle hint of teal and turquoise combined! Get it from John Lewis or online at http://www.scion.uk.com
