Have you ever felt instantly calmed in the presence of water, or noticed your stress levels drop when by the sea? There’s something wonderfully soothing about gazing out over an expanse of water – no wonder so many of us dream about seaside holidays!
If you’d like to create an oasis of calm in your interior, why not take inspiration from the sea and put together an irresistible palette of coastal colours? While the bathroom is an obvious choice to paint blue, an aquatic-inspired colour scheme would work equally well in a living room or bedroom. Layer cobalt, ultramarine and aqua for an all-encompassing, blue-lagoon feeling, or dress up a neutral scheme with pops of rich blue to create a resort-style look.
