5 Happy Inspirations: Don’t Feel Blue…

May 15, 2012 0


After yesterday’s flashy pink door I thought I’d dedicate today’s ‘5 Happy Inspirations’ to one of my favorite hues, blue. There is one absolutely important rule when it comes to blue: Don’t feel blue, decorate with blue! Whether you like the Blues, Blue Velvet, blueberries, the blue Smurfs or blue fashion items – don’t forget to add a tad of blue to your home, too. You can go from bold to delicate. 

Inspiration 1: Paint a blue feature wall like this one as seen on Design Sponge. Use a saturated blue like Farrow & Ball’s ‘Cook’s Blue’.

Inspiration 2: Get yourself an eye-catching throw with a geometric pattern and blue accents. Like the Harlekin blanket from Fine Little Day.

Inspiration 3: Get handy and DIY a cool wooden chair. Then paint it, spray it, watercolour it, dip dye it – but keep it blue like this one as seen on Static2.

Inspiration 4: You are a blue pro? Then revamp your bathroom and enrobe it in blue vintage tiles like here as seen on Traditional Home.

Inspiration 5: For the indecisive – keep it small and flexible and add blue accents with a little stripey rug. Choose for example this one as seen on French Connection.

So, if you ever hear of a ‘blue Wednesday’ then you know where it comes from! Happy hump day!

    Blue is a very important colour for us humans I think. It’s the colour of the waters and the sky so it literally surrounds us. It’s no wonder it is the most popular favourite colour then.

    I LOVE those bathroom tiles :)

    Happy Hump Day to you Xx.
