Long gone are the days when homes were dominated by a singular white palette, with beige, magnolia and greys usually chosen to create a neutral, minimalist design scheme. Homeowners are becoming bolder and braver and, with colour psychology becoming increasingly popular, bright colour pops are being used within the home in a variety of ways. In particular, blue has proven itself to be a firm favourite to create a clean, calm and classic ambience in the home.
A universally favoured colour, blue is versatile and has a multitude of shades, tones and hues. Perhaps because it’s the colour of both the sky and the sea, blue is said to induce clarity and increased intuition. The colour is also linked to creativity, serenity and productivity – some great moods to evoke within your home!
Used within interior design, the shade is immediately calming and welcoming, whether used in deep navy for a touch of drama, or a paler tone for a more subtle space. From nautical to regal, and from exciting injections of accent colour to eye-catching patterns, there are many ways to bring blue into your next home interior project.
Using tiles is a great way to incorporate blue into your scheme in a way that is guaranteed to look gorgeous, especially when paired with classic white and marble finishes.
Our Poitiers range redefines the classic metro tile with a decadent gloss finish and is available in a rich Azure Blue colour. Particularly striking against a clean white grout, the delicate texture of the tile catches the light and reveals ripples within the tile’s surface for a subtle style statement. Featuring a classic shape, this tile can be used to create an array of playful patterns, from on-trend chevron compositions, to herringbone patterns and straight-line brick styles.
For a bolder, more playful patterned tile, our Havana range comes in a fresh colour palette that celebrates soft blues, greys and greens. For an organic aesthetic, pair Havana with complementary shades of white, blue and natural wood, or embrace an impressive approach to colour confidence with clashing patterns and pops of vivid blue.
