Work making you blue?

Picking a colour for a home office is a tricky thing. A pastel blue is perfect for keeping you calm, centred and focused on the job before you. A set of beautifully painted blue drawers, or a chair or even stationary holders can work wonders.

Blue haven

Turn your entire home into a tranquil oasis with a neutral theme of whites, browns and pastel blues. It’s the perfect trio to set your mind at ease, and creates the perfect backdrop for a potted plant collection.

The main attraction

Isn’t it incredible how a colour so subtle can utterly command a room? A single door, freshly painted in pastel blues, can liven up a room without overwhelming it. Consider making a weekend project out of your bedroom or bathroom door.
