Design offers you a many ways to warm up a blue hue. "Even if you choose a cooler blue, you can warm it up through layers of texture and lighting. Warm white bulbs in lighting that spreads from ceiling pendant to wall lights and table lamps and exposed timber floorboards, cosy wool rugs, warming oak furniture and an abundance of textiles from fully-lined curtains to upholstery will promise your room temperature feels balanced, whatever shade of blue you pick," Amy reassures.
We might be doing ourselves an injustice, though. "Basic colour theory always refers to blue being one of the cool colours, but that does not mean to say it will make your room feel cold," says Amy Conn, from Neptune design team. It is also a mistake to think that all blues are cold. "Colour temperature depends on the base and what tints and shades are added - for example, a blue with a yellow or red base will feel warmer than one with a purple or green base," she explains.
One of the fastest growing home trends for 2019, the botanical look is all about bringing the outdoors in. To incorporate this style into your living room décor, choose a colour palette that includes refreshing and serene colours from the natural world and accent with revitalising shades of green throughout. Furnish with pieces that use natural materials and finish off with some in-season flowers and houseplants. The truly brave may even want to have a stab at creating their own Living Wall (i.e. an interior structure comprising vertical panels of plants). Not only is the use of greenery on-trend, but it also has many health benefits including stress reduction and air purification.
