Color trend: Deep blues

Of all colors, blue is the color most often picked by people when asked what their favorite color is. Blue is a very versatile color, it can go from the lightest airy light blue, to deep indigo, and almost black. A few years ago, a favorite color combination was blues and brown - still pretty! We have also seen quite a bit of sophisticated grayish blues. Well what I see now as a strong coming color trend are the deep blues and the indigos. These blues feel really fresh and sophisticated, yet graphic and modern. Look around, and you will soon see this color coming everywhere.

Rooms decorated in black

To decorate with black as your main color is daring! A good friend of mine, did her entire kitchen in black and white. This was some years ago, and maybe it's changed since then? But black and white is a very graphic, clean, and, daring color combination. Would you dare it?

Craving white!

It must be the Swede in me, but for the last 6 months or so, I am just craving more white in my own surroundings. It started with the kitchen. My gorgeous bluish black cabinets got a transformation with a coat of white paint. I love it! Then a few added accessories, in white, and now I am considering replacing my black office furniture with white pieces instead. White really is the perfect color in my opinion! It is at the same time fresh and crisp, but also relaxing and comforting. Think about all the different hues of whites there are - from warm off whites to contemporary whites with colder undertones. Any style can be done in white. It is a color that lets you breathe in the room. A white room done right, will never feel depressing. It will lift your spirit and leave room for imagination!
