But why are we even talking about blue in the first place? Well, it is back, see. And like a lot of things, we can thank the catwalks for that. "The worlds of fashion and interiors have a close bond, but not a co-dependent one," Amy cautions, adding, "in the case of blue though, it is a story that found its feet in fashion. Shades of soft blue started to emerge last summer but have continued into spring/summer 19 collections with baby blue coming through strong".
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.
Do you have an unused space? A room with an eave or sloped ceiling can be a perfect place to add storage. In this design, we created a walk-in closet by fitting the space with open shelves and low bookcases. Use matching boxes and baskets to organize loose items and add a bench in the middle for some seating and a place to set things down.
