Winter Blues?

Mid Winter Blue inspiration
In the depths of winter it is natural to feel a little blue; but then you can get a little mid winter blue inspiration with these pictures.

Splashes of Blue

The above pictures are by Canadian Designer Sarah Richardson whose series ‘Sarah 101’ & ‘Sarah’s House‘ you may have seen on the Living Channel. She is a whizz at mixing lots of patterns and/or colours together. It is also interesting to see how, by mixing & putting together a few pieces that you may have lurking in your cupboards, you can create compositions and vignettes of colour to match your winter blue theme.  Note that not everything in the pictures is brand new.  Older pieces add soul and patina to a room that new things don’t. In other words, it doesn’t necessarily cost to show your style.

At Room Service Interiors fabric can often inspire furniture designs & we have noticed that there are also lots of blue fabrics coming through in the latest collections- especially in Ikat, geometrics, and tribal prints. There is also use of blue in updated traditional prints; blue has always been a classic and will continue to be.

These photos show wallpapers and fabrics available from Unique Fabrics. Unique has a wonderful range of blue fabrics in their indent collections from Travers- the Entrada and Windermere designs I especially love. Now then, Doesn’t it make you feel there is a little bit of summer in your winter blues?
