Blue Sitting Room

19th December 2021

A pretty country house sitting room with a fresh blue and white scheme. It creates a friendly atmosphere with a delicate paisley wallpaper, and matching blind and cushions in check. It's finished with an oversized lampshade which sets the blue and white theme off beautifully.

Get the Look

Walls and Blind

One of the most popular wallpapers, Malabar, is used here in white on a pale blue. A lovely fresh, clean look is created with a slight off-white paint, like Architects White.

Roman blinds are ever popular, perfect if you have shorter windows, or want less fabric on the walls. They can be a great statement too. A simple Lusanne check complements an intricate paisley wallpaper.

Furniture, Cushions and Lamp

A pair of angular Thakeham Armchairs, covered in a pretty Rooksmoor blue velvet with contrasting piping in Arthur's Seat cream wool, adds extra texture and warmth to the room.

A ceramic Table Lamp that can have a bespoke lampshade with the blue binding finishes the look.
