Colours of Shopping: Blue

Grab a book, a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate to beat the winter blahs – an even more effective strategy when they are all in energising shades of blue.

Why call it a blue Monday when blue is such an inspiring and beautiful colour? It's shade that for some, invariably adds a sense of tranquillity and peace while for others, it's all about a steady and vibrant energy. And blue is the subject of two of our very favourite colour-themed Pinterest boards, Balmy Blue and Blue and White.

In our June/July 2019 print edition, we focussed on bright colours – including red, yellow, blue, green and orange – for our directional Curate decor shoot. Our upfront shopping pages were similarly themed, as well as including their usual focus on the trendiest decor pieces.

As it is in nature, when it comes to interior design, blue is an extremely diverse and versatile colour. There are multiple shades of it to play with in your home, where it can be used to calm and quiet – or to create a genuine sense of drama and luxury. It works just as well in living rooms as it does for children's spaces, and of course, blue is perfect in the bathroom.
