I love blue, it features in two rooms in my home and I wear a lot of it. In my home I’ve used a soft blue with pink in the bedroom which is inspired by the sea, coastal pink flowers and sunset skies. In the lounge I’ve used a darker navy tone which is nautical in feel. Come the summer and we are dreaming of the coast and summer holidays, it’s a great time to add some nautical or coastal themed decor accessories to suit the season. I’ve found a nautical blue collection that would help to create this summer look in your home.

Being creative in your home doesn’t have to be with items you’ve made yourself, you can create environments in your home that evoke feelings and inspire you in the way that you live in your spaces. One of the easiest ways to do this without changing up your entire furniture and furnishings, is to add accents of colour, to create little displays of themed items, or just to add accessories. These items will help you dream of coastal breaks but also blue is known to be a calming colour. Deep blues remind you of the sea and the navy tone of blue denotes intelligence and trustworthiness and is a good colour for grounding and making living spaces relaxing.
