Well, call me crazy, but the Pantone Gypsy ball is right on the money. No other time, certainly in our lives have been as intense and challenging as they are now. And what helps to remember, is we’re all in this together and we are all in need of some “deep blue shade - that's at once comforting and relatable.”
COLOUR PALETTES FOR THE HOME – COLOUR REALLY DOES IMPACT YOUR EMOTIONS
Colours can - and do - affect our mood and psychologically, blue is recognised as one of the most calming and comforting colours of the entire spectrum.
Perhaps it’s because blue is so closely linked to nature’s biggest assets, the sky and the sea. But regardless, what you want to know is how to incorporate this healing, calming colour into your life and home.
CHOOSE BLUE FOR YOUR HOUSE PAINTING INSPIRATION
It’s actually never been easier to go along with a colour trend than now. Given many of us are spending more time than ever – at home, consider a painting project (at the time of writing a quick visit to your local hardware of choice is still legal). Otherwise, there’s always the online shopping option.
THE HAMPTON’S STYLE TREND IS STILL HUGE – FOR GOOD REASON
The entire ‘Hamptons’ look is based on the extensive use and highlights of the colour blue. There’s an obvious nautical and coastal connection to this wildly popular trend. But you can easily create this look with a more Australian bent, such as adding local vintage finds, especially by adding some local rustic wood in the mix.
But I would caution, as with any trend, make it yours - as in your personal and original take on the theme. Choose sections of your home or room and choose with care – as you add blue highlights. While blue always looks fabulous against a clean white background, it can also work with other colours such as grey, or those in the same ‘family’ of colours.
Remember, you can be bold with this colour but make sure you don’t overdo it. You want to enjoy this year’s Pantone Color of the Year - Classic Blue - for years to come!
