Styles Watch: Hints of Blue
Feb 16, 2022
As we dive deeper into 2022, the second style trend to consider for your next home improvement project is “hints of blue.” Looking to add a splash of colour to your home, but not sure what to pick? Blue is the perfect place to start. This hue will always be in vogue and you can use brighter renditions of blues in turquoises, cornflower blues, and baby blues to provide a touch of colour as an accent in your home design. Or, you can find grounding blue shades like blue-gray, sapphire blue, and navy to keep your space in a neutral palette. You'll get the most out of this colour trend by adhering to the basics of colour theory with a combination of complementary shades and infusing blues where you see fit.
