Here at NONAGON.style we love a bit of blue, as evidenced here and here. In all our blue adventures though, we’ve rarely explored its frothy sky, duck egg, pastel-toned form – until now that is. Stand by for a round up of our favorite pastel blue interiors and decor items that are sure to make you love the shade as much as we do.
Taking inspiration from Pantone’s Colors of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity, this room expertly mixes pink and blue without making it feel like we’re in a children’s nursery. Geometric shapes facilitate color blocking for a simple yet effective feature wall. The layering of different tones of pastel blue above the doorway is a nice idea to steal if you want to add dimension to a space.
Pastel denim blue and Scandinavian designed? This Sofa Bed is all our favorite things rolled into one. We especially like how the dark stained feet add a mid-century modern appeal to the piece. Don’t think that this pick is simply style over function though! This sofa is also a practical piece perfect for a flexi-living situation; simply push down the arms and remove the back cushion to transform it into a day bed.
Exposed brick walls don’t mean you have to adopt an industrial loft aesthetic. Instead, by painting the walls a gentle sky blue the designer of this space has managed to create an altogether different (read: warmer) vibe. Alongside the impressive collection of greenery and exotic rattan accents, the pastel blue helps to establish a bohemian indoor-outdoor living ambiance. We imagine this room to lead out to a balcony packed to the brim with fairy lights and a hanging woven hammock.
For an industrial take on pastel blue we present the Hairpin Stool. The curved Tiffany-hued lines of this stool offer a glossy elegance that is matched by the beautiful elm wood seat. Have a couple of these on hand for those times when you’re entertaining and in need of extra seating.
Duck egg cabinetry lends a sense of calm to this open plan kitchen. We like how the design sticks to cool toned grays and minimalist white to keep the space looking sleek. At the same time, pine accents add just the right amount of natural warmth, stopping this from looking like an abstract show house.
