Jump into the Blue

Last year I styled an all blue decorating feature for Ideal Home playing with tone on tone and since then my passion for dark blue has become a bit of an obsession particularly for that intense shade of Prussian Blue - it's a bit like a favourite pair of jeans that look good with whatever you choose to pair them with.  However if this is just too much of a leap into the deep then try introducing a splash of  a brighter blue to a scheme - a dash of  azure, cobalt, electric or sapphire will add an eye catching accent to a neutral scheme or if you want to take a dip into one of this seasons most fashionable shades then take a leaf from my book and go for an all blue scheme in navy, midnight,  indigo or royal blue for a dark dramatic look.

Back to School

Maths was never my strong point but i'm loving the new trend for Autumn from Ferm Living which features those oh so familiar shapes from the humble triangle to the cone and cube all looking so cool and up to the minute.  So even if your times tables are a bit rusty gen up on Geometry for a little geek chic in your home
