Trend shake: Shades of blue in 2014

Trend shake: Shades of blue in 2014

Hello! Today I’m extremely happy to share with you the first post in our new column – Trend shake. Welcome and let’s get started! We are in 2014 and it’s time to have a look at what it means in terms of design trends. It seems that one of the most dominating color trends this year will be blue and it’s different hues. Three trendy shades: light blue, teal and turquoise are going to rock 2014, so whether you are planning to redecorate or simply add a splash of color, I’ll show you some of my favorite ways to invite blue into home. Ready?

Shade no. 1 – LIGHT, PALE BLUE‘A breath of fresh air’ (number 806) has been announced by Benjamin Moore as the color of the year. The color is very airy so it can help to brighten the room and give a calm, fresh feel. 

Works best with the following combinations:

1. Light blue + white + gray – for a balanced look
