Shades of Blue and Cream

A timeless combination that never fails to create fresh and elegant interiors, it remains one of the most popular combinations in interior design. Blue surrounds us; sky, water, flowers, and we feel comfortable with it.

Mixing blues and cream gives a clean, cool look, perfect for these warm sunny days. Keep it calm with chalky blues, and for something a little different bring in other pastel shades such as pink and green. Soft shades can be used in abundance without clashing and they will give the scheme depth and interest. In fact they can be treated a little like neutrals and work well layered up.

Choose a pretty floral fabric and accessorise using the accent colours in the print to pull the scheme together. Try mixing different textured fabrics such as linens and velvet. Modern furniture will keep this scheme up to date whilst painted wooden furniture will give this look a more traditional feel. If this is all too calm for you add accent colours in stronger tonal shades.

There are so many exciting ceramics around at the moment, go for a selection of shapes and sizes and dot them around the room to complete the look.

Have fun and enjoy the summer!
