The colour of the sky and the sea, blue is expansive and open. It’s the go-to colour for coastal homes and works brilliantly with white for an easy, fool-proof decorating scheme that looks effortlessly chic.
In the winter months though, blue and white can be a little cold in the UK climes so deeper indigo and midnight blues work well, especially when layered, blue tone on blue tone with greys. Dark blue is a great alternative to black when you’re looking for an anchor colour. It’s not so hard but has similar depth and intensity.
