    Don’t get the January blues – get these blues!

    by  • January 15, 2015 • Craze • 0 Comments

    From turquoise to teal and every shade in between, blue works so well as an accent in interiors. It can be either fresh and uplifting or soft and calming. And, by adding a cushion or two in any of these variations, your room will feel instantly brighter.

    Here’s our favourite blue cushions of the moment, which range from an Indian design in rich indigo to a Delft-like motif, and a dreamy peacock in toile de Jouy to a flock of exotic hummingbirds. Now, doesn’t summer seem that little bit nearer?
