Midnight Blue by aglassofice
It seems one million times easier to incorporate trends into the wardrobe than the home, which isn't really surprising considering the size difference (unless of course you're Carrie Bradshaw or Mariah Carey and have a wardrobe the size of a small castle). Having said that, there are home design trends that don't require enormous effort and for 2015, the perfect example of this is the explosion of blue accent colours. Personally, I tend to gravitate towards cream, beige and gold tones, however I'm certainly not opposed to throwing around a navy blue cushion or two in appreciation of the trend!
Eugene Small Pendant in Antique Brass - In my opinion, brass fittings are the perfect way of adding warmth to an otherwise 'cool' path laid out by the blue accent colours
Debora Stewart Essentia Acrylic Painting - This is such a fun and playful way of experimenting with the trend without immersing yourself in the colour. I'm actually looking for an identical piece to this in cream and gold for my bedroom - perhaps I'm finally close to finding my 'dream piece'!
L'Objet Lapis Large Vase - Crafted from cobalt blue Limoges porcelain with 24k gold accents, this beautiful vase is probably my favourite feature from this set
Patent Leather Cobalt Book - With regard to the home design trend, a set of five cobalt blue patent books is as hard-hitting as it comes - ten points for filling the brief!
Montegrappa Fortuna Blue and Rose Gold Ballpoint Pen - If you're anything like me, this pen will be giving you heart palpitations right now. The design is elegant, the combination of blue and rose gold is on trend and best of all, it's very reasonably priced
Pottery Barn 'Be You' Framed Print - The award for 'loudest statement and lowest cost' goes to this inkjet printed poster (12.25'' wide x 18.25'' high x 1.25'' thick)
Smythson ''Blah Blah Blah...'' Panama Notebook - As most bloggers will agree, Smythson's grained lambskin notebooks are pretty much the pinnacle of 'attractive' stationery, however I would say this cobalt blue version takes home first place (joint with 'Make It Happen')
Dot & Bo Turquoise Glazed Vases - These certainly aren't the electric, striking midnight blue that is getting all of the attention right now, however similar to the Eugene antique brass pedants, they offer light relief in a sea of blue..
Crate & Barrel Matte Indigo Pillar Candle (3'' x 6'') - Say hello to the prettiest colour and even prettier price - I'll take ten!
Fearne Cotton Melrose 3-seater Sofa - It's not midnight blue, deep navy or even indigo blue, but it's trying really, really hard and so it gets seven points from me just for effort!
Dot & Bo Laken Nesting Tables (Set of 2) - Unsurprisingly, another striking feature from Dot & Bo in this set. With metal bases offering two different shades of blue and contrasting wooden legs, these nesting tables are a fantastic way of bringing the on-trend accent colour into the home
