Colours are everywhere, all around us, inside and out. Nature is beautiful as it’s full of pleasant and vibrant colours!! Azure blue skies and pristine white beaches, dense green forests, deep blue oceans—present an inviting and pleasing backdrop for weary minds and bodies looking for relaxing getaways. The fact is that colours affect our moods, our wellbeing, our emotions and our lives. Try changing the shade of a room or purchasing a car in your favourite hue and notice the instant mood shift.

The QS Supplies online survey of 100 Interior Designers in 2016/2017 threw up some interesting results. Apart from Green, Blue was the hottest colour on trend and continues to be a favourite with consumers and designers alike. Most voted among hues of blues are vibrant and classy Poseidon and Navy Blue, which is a bold accent colour that will look simply wow on upholstered chairs, sofas, and rugs. Australian designer Kate St. James had said, “My pick for 2017 is Pantone Biscay Bay- a beautiful greenish blue that works with our wonderful Australian land and seascapes, a true favourite of mine”! Denim Drift, Teal Blue, Island Paradise and True Navy are other shades of blue that are very hot this season.
