Blue has always been a popular colour, we look at how it’s being revamped for 2017 and how you can incorporate Pantone’s Maritime Blue trend colour into your home.
The Blue Berkeley Bar, London
This wonderfully deep colour is making its way back into contemporary interior trends. Pantone is predicting ‘Maritime Blue’ in their Reminiscence trend collection for 2017. Taking the shade even darker than normal, perfect for a wintery night.
Farrow & Ball have added Inchyra Blue to its palette – inspired by a bespoke colour made for Lord & Lady Inchyra at Georgian Inchyra House in Scotland. This coming year blue will be the new grey, especially if it’s kept earthy, dark and moody.
This look brings a dramatic and rich atmosphere into your room, especially if you pair it with brass, another trend for the season.

Country house interiors are veering towards raw textures to bring a new dimension to rooms for winter. Juxtaposing chunky glass with french crates and tangled twigs against a deep-stained wall is dramatic and very effective.
Contrasting deep blue velvet and linen accessories in your otherwise neutral scheme adds a new dimension, especially if you’re not brave enough to slather a whole wall in the rich colour.
