Blue is a fantastically versatile colour which can be used to create all kinds of effects in a room. It also comes in a wide range of hues and tints, ranging from navy blue to sky blue and turquoise.

Navy blue is considered to be a traditional, 'cool' colour that creates a calm, clean atmosphere. It is an elegant colour that can be cleverly used to create depth in shapeless or smaller interiors.

If blue's your base colour, then think about using a complementary colours such as orange or saffron to add an accent. Interior designers often reach for scatter cushions to add their accent colours, but wool blankets and throws provide an equally and arguable better way to add a colour accent.

Blue and white is a classic colour combination that's been used through the ages in various combinations. Think wedgwood pottery or Dutch tiles. The contrast gives an impression of clarity and order. Why do you think the British Royal Navy has used navy blue in its uniforms for hundred's of years. They haven't just been interested in blending in with their background...
