Ocean Blues

Ocean hues are a hot trend this summer with aqua and deep blues contrasting with crisp white for that classic Aegean look. You really don't want your home to look like a taverna from 'Shirley Valentine' so here are some subtle changes to create that Greek island-style.

Add a cobalt blue accent by painting your existing kitchen chairs. Mondrain Blue by Dulux would be a good choice. Adding a beautiful arrangement of cobalt vases or an electric blue rug would work equally well.

A little corner of rustic charm! Blue Ground from Farrow & Ball has been used here to add some subtle aqua tones to this home. Love the little blue stool too!

Sea blue shades in glassware look stunning arranged on open shelving. These Moroccan style tumblers are made from recycled glass (by Canvas Home).

Try adding some beach chic with a bead chandelier. The soft tones of blue are perfect for a restful bedroom scheme.

Blue and white ceramics are a classic combination and these artisan bowls are so divine!
