i’ve shared all about blue before, but i just keep seeing more and more of it popping up in the design world and i’d definitely say it’s on trend. but blue’s a pretty traditional classic, too, so perhaps were’ just giving it a modern update. velvet is also definitely trending (in fashion, and in decor) and the blue jewel tones (think sapphires!) lend themselves well to the richness of the fabric and they pair well together — like the beautiful vintage velvet crapaud chair with fringe we picked up for the shop at a flea market in lyon. i love blue paired with pink (like the abstract piece below) and mustard yellow is dreamy, too. whether you add a bit of blue through artwork, a beautiful piece of furniture, or a bold accent wall of ceiling to floor paint, it’s going to look great, and whether on trend or not, i think blue has long lasting legs that aren’t going away anytime soon.
