It's Blue Monday

Don’t be depressed, be inspired

Blue Monday is the name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) which is suggested to be the most depressing day of the year. At British Gypsum Homeowner we want to turn those frowns upside down and instead of feeling blue, we want to feel inspired with these stylish blue interior trends.

Paint it blue

Towards the end of last year PANTONE® announced their fashion colour report for spring 2016 and blue featured heavily in the palette of shades. So if you fancy giving a room a blue makeover be sure to pick one of the below two colours – or maybe even both of them?

PANTONE 15-3919 Serenity – Has a comforting calming effect, perfect for a bedroom

Blue Monday

PANTONE 19-4049 Snorkel Blue – A maritime inspired blue, which makes you think of holiday cottages by the sea

Blue Monday

Cool Kitchen

Often the busiest room in the home, kitchens can often become hot noisy environments. Add a splash of calming blue with some cool contemporary tiles.

Blue – tiful!

Don’t have time to paint or tile? Create a calm relaxing room with blue accessories! A sofa, prints, pots or cushions. We love blue lampshades the best. Remember the lighter the room, the more bold you can be with your shade of blue.
