We’re feeling blue and loving it. The colour that dominated the runways for the Spring 2018 fashion collections in New York is finally making its way into homes. In fashion, the spectrum ran the gamut from powder to electric. However, for our spaces, designers have been embracing mid-tones as well as darker, more formal shades which go perfectly with wood grains and metallic accents such as brass and gold. In colour psychology, blue creates a feeling of calmness and serenity; its darker tones signal security, stability and sophistication. Whatever you feel about blue, there’s no denying the appeal of these following five spaces.
Lucas Yang of Archive Design paired the robin egg blue of the Belize laminate with the warm tones of the Tanned Rosenheim Maple laminate to bring a Scandinavian feel to this children’s room.
The classic combination of navy blue and white conjures up a breezy nautical vibe for this master bedroom, designed by Starry Homestead. A headboard clad in the wood-inspired Tobi Milnerton laminate adds visual texture.
Eschewing the usual white-and-wood combination for kitchens, Three-D Conceptwerke chose to pair this kitchen’s white countertops with cabinetry clad in Cadet Blue laminate instead, for a more sophisticated look.
The Blueberry laminate creates an oasis of calm in this study room designed by Elpis Interior Design. The High Gloss Chalk laminate is used for balance. Colour psychology also points to blue as the colour of intelligence!
Blue makes a winning pairing with stone and metal looks as well, as shown in this master bedroom by Fuse Concept. The space sports a cobalt blue wall and curtains with the stone-inspired Lalo Ramblas laminate on the cabinetry and the metal-inspired Austin Tobias Steel laminate on the island counter.
