It’s Blooming Blue – Spring Colour Trend
Well if you are lucky enough to be a Vancouverite, then you realize we have welcomed spring with a bang. This last month has felt more like summer weather and we are loving it! Along with the blue skies and bike rides along the seawall, we are noticing a lot of blue in the design industry. In this blog post, we are going to elaborate on just one very popular colour trend at the moment. From dinnerware, furniture, fashion, and cars, you can’t help but find the palest of blue to the deepest indigo in any showroom. We have captured a few ideas on how you can incorporate this trend in your own home.
For the timid may we suggest experimenting with smaller pieces like dinnerware? Available online at March is the beautiful Italian stoneware collection by Rina Menardi’s in deep blue. Over at Crate and Barrel, you will find multiple lines in shades like navy and denim. Even Ikea is getting in on the action with their everyday value sets like Dinera for $34.99 in gray-blue. Or how about layering the bed or adding some toss cushions? Who doesn’t love linen? Check out the Belgian flax linen melange bedding set at West Elm.
Feeling a little braver? You could always paint a single accent wall in your home. Benjamin Moore included 4 blue versions out of 15 shades in their 2019 Color Trend Forecast. We particularly like the more muted versions like Black Pepper 2130-40 or Hale Navy HC-154. For a statement furniture piece, you need to look no further than one of our favourite lines Blu Dot. Founded by two Architects and a Sculptor who make beautiful, affordable and functional pieces. The Clutch Lounge Chair in Edwards Navy and Ash is sure to be the most popular seat in the room. Or another navy option is their Strut coffee and end table collection. Perfect for the minimalist home.
Fashion-wise we suggest a few pieces from Club Monaco like the Robetta Skirt in Marfa Blue or the Yolande Pant in Canyon Blue. Forbes tells us how to shop denim in Spring 2019 top trends. Who What Wear names midnight blue as one of the hot colours for spring/summer 2019.
According to automotive supplier BASF, if you’re in North America and you end up buying a car in the 2022 model year, it’s likely to be painted a deep blue hue called “Atomium Sky” thanks to your upwardly trending interest in science and space travel. This year you need to look no further than BMW or Volkswagen for several versions of blue.
