Blue Sky Thinking

Blue is renowned for its serene properties making it the perfect colour to introduce into your home this spring. From a revamped wall to those well-loved accessories which add character and charm; its soothing, restful tone makes it an ideal choice for any room in the house. Additionally, in colour therapy, blue is thought of as the colour of communication.

American designer, potter and author, Jonathan Adler, imbues his aesthetic with his principles, which include ‘your home should make you happy’; ‘colours can’t clash’; and our personal favourite ‘we believe that when it comes to decorating, the wife is always right. Unless the husband is gay’. Describing his rooms as luxe and liveable, we love this inspiring presentation which marries texture, colour and form.
