Deep down at the bottom of the sea exists a magical life and uncharted territory. A few years ago, while in Hawaii we took a submarine journey to 110 ft below sea level. Looking through the porthole of the submarine we discovered the dark and mysterious ocean world full of life and amazing creatures. I managed to capture this image of fish swimming alongside us and simply love the colours and movement that it offers. Come along as we create a dramatic room, I was thinking a small sitting room, in a palette of shades of blue.
1. Looking for more ‘blue’ inspiration? Pick up a copy of BLUE by House Beautiful 2. Accent with shades of celadon and pale green with this stack of storage boxes from Style Hive 3. I adore this French Beauville Textile that was transformed into a pillow found via Etsy 4. The translucency of the ‘Stone accent table’ from Kartell is a perfect play on light and touch of modern via Hive Modern 5. The combination of blues, patchwork wave pattern and traditional frame has me swooning over this stylish Louisa settee, a showstopper for the sitting room 6. Include an area carpet in varying shades of blue and you’ve created an ideal base to offset your other blue elements. 7. Why not create a dramatic back drop by painting the walls Benjamin Moore Starry Night Blue? 8. Additional elements of pale grey/sage offset the blue with these Ceylon lamps from Bungalow Five. 9. The sheen on the Austin ottoman from Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams is lovely, adding a touch of glamour 10. The Gloria Chair, also from Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams adds another touch of femininity but also handsome details with tufting and turned legs. Two of these and you’ve completed your conversation area in the sitting room.
I hope this has inspired you to add a little moody blue to your room!
