Room of the Week

February 9, 2015

For our first Room of the Week post of this year we are featuring a smart living room which is decorated with one of the hot trends for 2015.


Following a few years in the decoration wilderness blue is back in fashion as a decorating choice and making an appearance in many homes. It’s a great colour for adding atmosphere to a home and never be afraid to go dark – decorating is so much more exciting when you step out of your comfort zone.

Two of my favourite dark blues are available from the Little Greene collection. The first is Hicks’ Blue which is a mid range blue named after David Hicks, one of the most influential designers of the 60s and 70s. This blue was used at the top of the London Telecom Tower in 1962. Over 50 years later it is definitely back on trend and a great choice for living rooms.

Basalt is an even darker blue if you are willing to step further towards the dark side. Shown below it would make a very superb choice for a bedroom to create the restful room. This blue is almost black but the effect is lightened here by adding touches of dusky orange to this bedroom.

Maybe this year will be the one you explore new colours and try darker shades in your own home? What do you think about the blue options here? Head over to the Little Greene blue selection to explore their full range.

This room was originally featured in the extensive galleries of House to Home. Take a look over at their website for room inspiration, and be sure to check back here every week to find which one of the rooms has been showcased.
