For 2020 Pantone’s reigning hue is a classic blue: an indulgent colour perfect for elevating a room from ordinary into opulent. Reminiscent of a dusky evening sky, Pantone’s 19-4052 is said to foster feelings of resilience and tranquillity. Two qualities much sought after in the calm of our own homes, we are thrilled with this choice of colour for the year ahead. With peace and comfort firmly in mind we’ve put together a mood board to reach for when you’re feeling blue and need some interior inspiration…

Get tactile! Create a soothing but stylish living space or bedroom with textured linen cushion covers, and an indulgent luxury feel in the bedroom with our sumptuous velvets. In neutral décor cool tones will lift the room without drastically changing the look by simply enhancing what is already there. For more of a punch, deeper blue and jewel tones enrich your already stylish space with an on-trend shock of colour. Whether you’re feeling modern rustic boho or embracing classic country cottage decor, the great thing about cushions is that you can mix and match wherever you are, whenever you want.

Not only available in a spectrum of blue shades, our lampshades come in all sizes and shapes too. Choose from our cool cottons, luxurious silks and satins, soft linens and the rich nap of our velvets to adorn your favourite light fixtures. Timeless and classic, these styles will take pride of place in both period and contemporary interiors. Top your lamps with plain or pattern, dark or light, and enjoy the enduring and elegant appeal of classic blue.

Brass and more brass..! We have long coveted the perfect blue to go with our Antiqued Brass accessories, and know that many of our customers create gorgeous combinations with deep blue paints.

Here we’ve paired Farrow & Ball’s Downpipe with our brass lighting. For living areas and studies try our best-selling Club (pictured) or our stunning Curtis Spotlight, then pair with matching switches and sockets for the complete look. The warmth of our lightly Antiqued finish truly sings against the cooler grey-blue, creating a stylish backdrop for your room that still allows you to introduce other accents of colour.

This is where our new velvet comes in. A richly tactile fabric in Burnt Orange, this latest addition to the Hunstanton Collection will create a sense of drama wherever it is used, perfect for providing a touch of luxury and playfulness against cooler tones. An ideal fit for modern rustic homes, this bold Burnt Orange can be used to contrast or blend, working beautifully with the season’s popular faded earth and gold tones if you prefer a more mellow look. Modelled by our Fluted Harleston Table Lamp, you can also purchase this velvet as a cut length, a cushion cover and in a variety of shade shapes and sizes. What will you style with Classic Blue?
