It’s that time of year again when I share some festive gift guides with you – I can hardly believe December is literally around the corner. Most of you have probably started your Christmas shopping (or at least thought about it and made a list, because that counts too, right?!), so I thought I’d help you along with a short series of Christmas gift guides. If anything, you might even find something for yourself in there, which I reckon is wholly acceptable and deserved after a busy year at work, school, college and everything in between.
In previous years, I have concentrated my gift guides around who the recipient is, however this year I thought I’d change things up a little and I’m writing three guides based on three different ‘looks’. I promise there will be something for everyone no matter what your home decor style (or if you’re anything like me, you’ll find something you love on all three gift guides!)
This first one’s for the Scandi style aficionados out there, so if you or the loved one you’re buying for, is a lover of all things simple, pared back and always functional, you’re in for a real treat…
As a follow up to my last post on ways to use indigo blue in your home, I want to show you what I believe are the best dark blue paint colours on the market. Dark blue is a popular colour choice at the moment, especially now that winter us upon us and we feel the need to turn the lights down low and hibernate. It is such a cosy, cocooning, yet also elegant colour, whether it’s an entire room cloaked in its velvety hues or simply one wall.
With all the different ranges of paint on the market today, it can be difficult to find the right colour for your particular home, so here’s my pick of the best dark blue paints out there and how they can work throughout different lights and times of day.
Indigo is a really gorgeous AW interiors trend this year, so if you’ve been looking for something a little different from the usual in your home, maybe this is the colour for you. To keep the look cosy for winter, just make sure to layer this beautifully deep and rich colour up with plenty of textures, offsetting its inky depth with neutral accents, such as warm beiges, creamy whites and soft blush pinks.
Here are some ways you can embrace this beautiful blue into your home’s interior…
