In colour therapy, blue is known to have a relaxing effect, so bring blues into your home to create a sense of soothing tranquility. Textiles are an easy way to experiment with blue as an accent colour – try layering cushions and throws in different tones, from indigo to denim. Go bolder with blue in the bedroom for a look that’s cosy, not cold. Find the shade that suits you; try sophisticated navy for modern styles, retro turquoise for a vintage feel, or ocean blue for a clean, nautical look.
‘I started painting water colours in blue shades. I wanted to convert the expression of water into patterns, to capture the power of a stormy sea, and sun rays reflecting off a still lake’
Hanna Dalrot, designer of STOCKHOLM 2017 metre fabric and cushions
