We all love to have a breezy blue sky mood, so why not give yourself a boost by shaping the decor inside of your very own home to promote a positive outlook. Blue is the colour of fine weather, calm waters, and good times, and we all need more of those. Team blue accents with a silver lining of pale grey decor, and wisps of white, for freshness and clarity. Warm metals add modern sleekness to the result, whilst natural wood tones and rattan elements evoke a beachy atmosphere. These four home tours include all of this, plus a more shadowy approach where the blue theme builds an energised undercurrent.

Blue home interior number one is spiced with warm metals and wood tone against a smooth pale grey and white canvas. Breezy blue accents dot the neutral setting, in the shape of scatter cushions and throws on the modern sofa.
A small round coffee table adds a crisp spot of white onto a dark grey area rug in the lounge, opposite a white and pale wood TV wall.
A blue dining bench slices a bright divide through the middle of the open plan living room.
The dining bench is mixed and matched with comfortable grey dining chairs and a modern marble topped dining table.
A copper linear dining room light makes wonderfully warm contrast with the cool grey dining chairs. White storage cabinets back the space.
Directly adjacent to the dining room is a home workspace, which is zoned distinctively by a blue painted feature wall at one side of the desk.
Sliding doors can be pulled closed around the home office to create privacy and quiet from the rest of the living room–or to shield the relaxation zone from the view of work.
White and woodtone storage cabinets back the work area, and tie in gently with the finish of nearby kitchen cabinets.
A blue Eames bird sings out from a set of bespoke bookshelves.
Unique coffee mugs follow the metallic theme of the room.
The same storage system that backs the dining area runs around into the home entryway, where white and wood units are accentuated against a rich blue feature wall.
Blue goes missing in a smart neutral grey and wood bathroom scheme.

Our second tour takes place in a 66.4 square metre flat located in Lviv, Ukraine. The client here requested a maritime and travel theme that would maintain the spacious feel of the apartment. Gold wall sconces instantly evoke the intended theme in a cloudy grey, white and blue living room.
A mid century style coffee table adds a moment of natural woodtone into the centre of the lounge.
Plentiful blue accessories jostle in a cheerful beachy palette.
Geometric line appears in the light modern rug design, and in a gorgeous wooden media unit.
Wegner style Wishbone Chairs create interest around a simple white and wood dining table.
The white dining set stands out crisply against the blue dominated backdrop.
The designers installed transoms to maximise light from the limited windows at their disposal, of which there were only two.
An oversize rattan dining room pendant light shade ramps up the world travel theme.
Our third home design is a vision of cobalt and crisp white, where modern light tracks cut around the ceiling line, and modern furniture stretches out in minimalist lines.
A blue ottoman coffee table splashes character into the centre of the minimalist living room, and sends its colour theme rippling outward to crash against slatted blue interior doors and a blue kitchen.
A modern lounge chair stands on a black wireframe base, which amplifies lined pattern in the area rug.
The dazzling cobalt blue kitchen is textured with on trend slatted panelling to exaggerate the effect. Crisp white kitchen bar stools, pendant lights and countertops clean up and lighten up the look. We think it would be pretty much impossible not to feel uplifted when walking into this room to make our morning coffee!

Our last home interior is a bit on the darker side, yet feels completely energised by the blue theme that streaks through its 84 square metre floor plan, located in Miami, USA. A plush floor sofa sets the tone in the centre of the lounge, where blue and houndstooth cushions layer up.
Large doors conceal a TV wall inside this minimalist living room, to maintain a sleek and clean aesthetic. Only a black backed hearth area at the base of the media wall remains permanently on show.
The large bifold doors move back flat against the wall when the TV is in use.
A modern fireplace awaits ignition on the contemporary hearth. A floor lamp glows by the blue sofa.
A light grey area rug holds the elements of the lounge together as one, and defines it from a kitchen diner space behind.
The light grey rug lays subtly with grey wood chevron flooring, which runs throughout the entire open plan.
A room divider lets daylight penetrate into the home entryway space.
The home entryway is decorated dramatically, with black paint engulfing every shadowy wall and door.
A black dining island extends beneath a boxy linear suspension light.
Six blue kitchen bar stools energise the monochrome culinary space.
Modern bedside table lamps sit on boxy bedsides.
Grey chevron flooring continues inside the bedroom.
A blue shower enclosure looks refreshing.
A flat fronted modern bathroom vanity establishes the minimalist bathroom style.
