Did you know that blue is the most popular colour? Perhaps it’s the soothing, watery tones or the serene coolness of this shade that makes it so attractive to so many. Blue is a hot trend in interior design these days and it is fast becoming the most asked for colour by Corea Sotropa Interior Design clients. Last year we completed this crisp living room makeover featuring a pop of blue. The ombre area rug which fades from royal to robin’s egg blue was our starting point. We worked with our client’s existing trunk coffee table which had just been purchased and added custom upholstery and new side tables and lamps. A few cobalt and navy accents and a graphic fabric for the drapery and voila, this basic living room was transformed into a crisp, family friendly gathering space. Check out the upholstered console and the accent trim on the velvet pillows – some of our favourite details.
