Most people love blue, right? After all, it’s the number one “favorite color” out there, and we’re not surprised by this! In the last few years, blue really has become part of the neutral tribe in both fashion and decor and it’s no surprise why. Blue evokes many emotions, but a few of them are what everyone is after; peace, calm and comfort.
Recently we were asked by Domino for our favorite blue (alongside Emily Henderson, Leanne Ford and many amazing others!) and right now, we’d have to go with De Nimes, by Farrow and Ball. Here’s what Ashley had to say about this beautiful blue hue:
Ashley Scott’s favorite blue is reminiscent of denim. “Just like your favorite denim pieces, this color really works in almost any scenario. It can be dressed up or dressed down, but it doesn’t ever go out of style,” she says of Farrow & Ball’s De Nimes. For a lighter play on moody hues, opt for this shade and mix with warm and blond wood tones. Scott recommends using it in a room that’s privy to a lot of natural light to keep it feeling bright. As for where you should use this color, “I can’t help but imagine this shade in a nursery, especially in a little girl’s room for a fresh approach,” says Scott. “Mix with wood, whites, metallics, and plenty of texture to create a cozy and comfortable space.”
Beautiful right? It’s such a lovely tone! Crossing our fingers we can use it in an upcoming project! Since we’re in a “blue” mood, we thought we’d round up some fun blue favorites that you can incorporate in your space!
