#Blueinteriors mentioned 37,100 times
After Dulux named its colour of the year 2022 as Bright Skies, it comes as no surprise that blue is making a serious home interiors comeback, with “Blue interiors” hashtagged just over 18,000 on Instagram alone. Inspired by the morning sky, blue is a seriously versatile shade that can be used to create inviting and welcoming spaces with a creative twist. Blue is subtle enough to be downplayed, or bold enough to be striking depending on the style you’re after; the more relaxed shades are a perfect substitute for often overused grey.
