It seems that in nearly every magazine and every blog I have read in the last couple of weeks, the colour blue is taking a staring role. Blue in all its hues from royal blue or inky midnight, teal or bluey grey all are taking on bigger roles in 2011 fashion and paint palettes.
The Etsy Finds above (how funny is it seeing keep calm things on here - aren't we all so over those!) like the room sets below show that the secondary colour orange is the complement to blue on the colour wheel, it’s a colour with warmth and evokes exotic climes – Morocco, the Caribbean, India…… Yellow also works particularly well as a complement to blue, probably because it’s the colour of sunshine and creates a warming effect. It’s also incredibly cheerful.
These bold colours can look great in interiors and are uplifting. The intense blues work well with yellow, orange, coral, pink, white and also partnered with black and gold.
