Blue and green: neighbours on the colour wheel with the advantage of going together perfectly. Although each of them can be individually difficult to master, because of the intensity that defines them, it is together that they deliver in spades. The perfect way to give perspective to a space or character to a wall, the blue-green combo is stunning. Surprisingly, it can also create a bold motif when combined with black. In its lighter variations, we like to see it rub shoulders with wood – for warmth – or different weaving techniques. Because, first and foremost, blue and green is a story of love. A love of materials. Thus, brass or glass is enhanced by the mere presence of this flattering colour combination. More than a passing fancy, blue and green meet our seasonal needs and expectations. They can be chosen in dark intense shades so that the velvety tone can touch us without damaging the retina. In a hallway for example, a dense khaki and a deep blue will create a uniquely enveloping and welcoming feel. Top that if you can!
