This season blue has completely taken over the Interiors world.
The little Green Paint Company has brought out a new colour chart named strangely enough ‘Blue’ which promotes all the blues that are currently in vogue. ‘Ultra Blue’ being an incredibly bold cobalt blue for a contemporary Mediterranean look , but also every shade from a soft ‘only just blue’ named Celestial White’ which would be lovely in a bedroom. Through to a traditional and pretty ‘Bone China Blue’ which would be stunning in a traditional kitchen and also a darker daring ‘Hicks Blue’ which would create an atmospheric dining room or entrance hall.
In-keeping with the theme were a large number of Portuguese furniture designers at the show. Historically famous for their tiles, Portuguese contemporary furniture makers are now using stunning contemporary tiles in interesting ways to make crazy furniture pieces. This sideboard is made to order and each piece is unique.
If you fancy making a statement in a hallway or perhaps papering a fun small space like a cloakroom so that is ‘the height of fashion’ take a look at the ‘New Geometric II’ collection that has just been launched by Cole and Son. It has some brilliant funky papers that also come in other colours, not just Blue and work with both traditional and contemporary pieces.
Even the stone suppliers are promoting incredibly exotic slabs which create truly fabulous interiors, feature walls and furniture.
