Blue is a colour often overlooked in interiors as people are afraid it will make a room feel too cold. Not really always the case though with a little bit of careful planning.
It can also feel modern, fresh, clean, moody and classic. There is something so timeless about the colour blue in an interior setting. Also I feel it’s a colour that can be mixed with metallics as well as other colours easily. One of my favourites, maybe slightly controversially, is to use black and white accessories with blue, definitely one of my favourites at the moment.
The Little Greene 20th Century Papers – Blue Collection is taken from previous collections have been re-mastered in elegant and moody hues of blue. So I’ve chosen three of the wallpapers from the collection to show you today, that I absolutely love.
Fern in Sage Blue (£66.50 per roll) is from the 20th Century papers by the Little Greene. I love this botanical wallpaper, which looks like pressed fern leaves, and in actual fact I believe this was how the actual result was produced. It comes in 9 different colourways, some more daring that others like a bright pink or yellow fern with a black background. This cool two tone blue is my favourite though I think.
According to Little Greene:
Two colourways of this iconic 1970s paper are known to have existed in a French book from 1975. Both originals were neutral in colour and printed on an embossed paper, giving the effect of linen. Whilst several of the contemporary interpretations are bolder in colour, one of the reproductions in this book is completely faithful to the original paper’s textured effect.
Finally Pines Ash Pine (£66.50) Without a doubt the bravest of the three, but also definitely my favourite too. It was recreated by copying the drawing from an early 19th century silk kimono. The trees are pine, and said to be emerging from the clouds in an abstract way. Its this abstract form and pattern as well as the dark colours that I would love to see in a bedroom. I think it would look very striking.
