FIND COMFORT IN BLUE: SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
Sweeping through the design and interior world as a colour that has a positive effect on wellbeing, blue’s combination with warm, natural finishes creates a feeling of reassurance and comfort too. So, Quick-Step laminate, vinyl and parquet collections are the perfect way to enhance blue’s spirit and turn your house into a warm nest.
Blue in every hue
From an azure blue that makes you dream of exotic beaches to a mysterious indigo, associated for hundreds of years with spiritual enlightenment, every shade invokes a different feeling. Vibrant cobalt and electric blue have a stimulating effect, while softer tones like sky blue and petrol blue are calming. No wonder these last two colours have become increasingly popular choices for bathrooms and bedrooms, adding warmth and serenity to the relaxed feel. Now, living spaces are being flooded with an eclectic mix of different blues too.
Playing the blues
Blue might be the coolest shade in the colour wheel, but it comes in many varieties. The hue can have a warm or cool undertone, depending on the combination of colours and materials. So, it makes sense that your choice of flooring impacts the effect of the shade you’ve chosen. Quick-Step laminate, parquet and vinyl collections include a wide range of wood looks that can reinforce the feel you’re aiming to create.
If you’re dreaming of a cosy living room, choose deep blue walls in combination with warm wood. To ramp up the feeling of comfort and security, why not play around with accessories in warm, earthy tones, like chestnut red, chocolate brown and ochre yellow, or combine with rattan and dark earthenware. If you think that painting all the walls blue might be a bit much, there’s always the option of choosing an eye-catching blue sofa or decorative elements like handmade ceramics in Delft blue or intense turquoise.
If you’re a fan of Scandinavian design, try combining pastel blue with light wood. Pale shades of blue can help to soften the greyish tone of a floor, while tiling or smooth concrete vinyl can intensify the effect of cool blue tones. Perhaps combine this look with accents in steel and black metal, to create an even cooler urban vibe.
The conclusion? Blue is a universal colour that lends itself perfectly to personalisation, in combination with the floor of your dreams of course.
