on trend: the blues.

i’ve shared all about blue before, but i just keep seeing more and more of it popping up in the design world and i’d definitely say it’s on trend. but blue’s a pretty traditional classic, too, so perhaps were’ just giving it a modern update. velvet is also definitely trending (in fashion, and in decor) and the blue jewel tones (think sapphires!) lend themselves well to the richness of the fabric and they pair well together — like the beautiful vintage velvet crapaud chair with fringe we picked up for the shop at a flea market in lyon. i love blue paired with pink (like the abstract piece below) and mustard yellow is dreamy, too. whether you add a bit of blue through artwork, a beautiful piece of furniture, or a bold accent wall of ceiling to floor paint, it’s going to look great, and whether on trend or not, i think blue has long lasting legs that aren’t going away anytime soon.

  1. Oh, I love blue. It is my absolute favourite colour. Velvet is also a favourite and I’m so happy that blue velvet items are on trend right now because it means I can stock up! The downside is that everybody will think my home is terribly dated once the trend has passed, but I can live with that as long as I have the blue velvet to console myself

  2. Lovely post, we think blue is timeless and can see why its the most popular favourite colour for most people!
    Beautiful interiors, we will be sure to include blue in our next wallpaper collection!
