Is Blue The New Grey in Interiors

As we all have all been obsessed by the use of grey in our homes for the last couple of years, is there finally a sea change in the air? Is blue becoming the new grey?

Fashion designer Erdem, the man behind the pieces in our wardrobes, that would become heirlooms to pass onto our offspring, if we could only afford them, has this month opened his first store in London and the interior walls are painted a beautiful pale china blue. The store was designed by his partner, architect, Philip Joseph, so between these two creatives you’d figure they must know a thing or two about colour and trends?

To add to my curiousity about blue perhaps being the new grey, Little Greene paint Company have also launched a separate paint scales chart especially for their blue shades, their only other scales chart currently being grey. Coincidence? Surely not?

Farrow & Ball, in fact predicted that one of their key colours for 2015 was their light Blue, seen here.

Lisa Armstrong of The Telegraph, suggests Farrow & Ball Light Blue or Parma Gray, above, as a close substitute for the custom blended paint used in the Erdem store, should you decide you too fancy a change from the 50 shades of grey we’ve been surrounded with.
