Bright Skies and over light wash blues are perfect for promoting a sense of serenity in your home, and those who feel connected to the colour should consider dowsing their bedrooms in this calming shade. The most outlandish trend of all the Instagram blue interior design trends, this ‘more is more’ approach fully embraces the cooling tones for a total breath of fresh air. 


Colour Blocking

For those who aren’t afraid to embrace the bold, one of the best ways to really make cool tones zing is colour blocking with opposite complementary colours, like orange and peach. Colour blocking works best with sharp, contemporary lines and shapes, which allow the eye to soak up the bold colours at play.

Often, when working with colour, focusing on key pieces to work with is the best approach. Softer, corn-flower blues are great for drawing on when working with a neutral pallet, to give the room a grounded feeling. 


Impactful Wallpaper

For those who are partial to a statement wall, light blue focused patterned wallpaper is a fantastic way to juxtapose this calming tone with an exciting and bold pattern. This design tactic works amazingly in alcoves to accentuate the space, bring in colour and light and help make the room feel larger. 


Backdrop Tiles

Make your kitchen splashback part of your kitchen look with a bold backdrop tile wall to inject azure tones into your space. Making these tiles a feature, by tiling higher than normal, to accentuate the height of your kitchen.   


A Subtler Approach

For those who favour a more minimalist, Scandi design approach, embracing new colours such as Bright Skies could feel quite alien. However, these soft blues work incredibly well with a muted palette and natural textures so bringing in a cool-toned blue through subtler tactics, such as accessories and soft furnishings, will allow you to embrace the new colour palette without drastically changing your style.
