Like every year, we have some wonderful colours which Interior Designers and Interior Stylists can use based on predictions. Canvas of 2023 is ready to receive all, but special mentions for Red, Peach, Nutshell, Nephrite & Cornflower blue. I am sure we have heard of them already and it’s time to explore each of them one by one. This time let’s have a talk about Cornflower Blue. (thesmoothiebus.com)
As understood by the name itself, it is derived from the cornflower and on a broader aspect represents life and fertility.
From being an artist’s muse, as seen in the ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ painting or, creating dreamy Interiors and plush make-up, folks in the creative stream can have the best while using this versatile colour of cornflower blue.
To receive the best out of any colour, as a designer you should be open for exploration and experiments. Similarly if you are playing around with the cornflower blue then pair it with the right contrast. Also, a designer should know what aspect of the colour they would like to focus upon. Is it the more energetic side of it or the subtle reflections to initiate calming and dreamy effects? Hence, it is also very important to understand the significance and sophistication of its various tints.
Let’s discover the charm of this lovely colour for a beautiful interior:
It’s not necessary to paint the wall in a trending colour. One can always get some great inspiration and start small. Probably include a small decorative piece of cornflower blue and Let it spread its allure.
A colour which responds well to both outdoor and Indoor settings. As a host or while doing a table setting, it could be a fresh add-on to keep the day going.
Bring in different materials and patterns to work with. Blue has one of the highest graphs in searched colours.
If the room receives enough natural light, having a piece of blue-stained furniture is a welcome idea against the plain walls.
Create contrasts while deciding on a Backsplash. Use Patterns to keep you interested while working in the Kitchen. Visual triggers are a way to help you keep coming back to a place.
Old School ideas are reappearing in modern houses. One can always opt for patterned floor tiles if not the complete kitchen. Sprinkle patterns rather than overdoing the same.
Floors are often underrated. The use of patterns on the floor is an easy way to add that drama and escape from the overwhelming wall patterns in small areas.
We all know how the future is shaping our lifestyles. Our homes are an extension of our working spaces and that gives us an opportunity to create and update spaces as we want them to be.
The desire to merge the line between outdoors and indoors is ever-increasing. Create spaces laced with colours, use them on uncommon surfaces, and at the same time let there be enough space for people to relax and imagine. Imagination is an asset that Interior Designers are gifted with, and they can always pass it on to their clients to let them have fun with the spaces in their future.
I hope our readers have enough inspiration to explore the beautiful Cornflower Blue. We will talk about more colours in the coming posts. Keep discovering, until we meet next.
