The colour of a swimming pool on a hot summer’s day, cerulean blue works as an accent in all rooms of the home.

Decorate your home with cerulean blue to create a feeling of bliss and contentment.

Sunny outlook

A blissful blue, cerulean conjures up images of endless summers and deep Mediterranean seas. In fact, the Latin origin of this exotic-sounding word translates to mean dark blue or blue-green, and that’s exactly where cerulean sits on the spectrum – halfway between bold, aquatic blue and shimmering sea green. No wonder then, that when the cerulean pigment was created in the early 19th century, the Impressionist painters flocked to fill their canvases with this glorious hue. (In fact, third on the list of Picasso’s last paint order was ‘Blue, cerulean’.)

Taste of the tropics

Brilliantly bold yet also calm and collected, cerulean blue makes a great accent hue in any space where you want to project a feeling of bliss and contentment. Pair it with greens and yellows for a lush, tropical feel, or combine it with pale neutrals, like eau de nil and gentle aqua, to create a relaxed look that will make you feel as though it's summer all year round.

Incorporate cerulean blue into your home decor with accessories like throw pillows, curtains, and rugs, or paint an accent wall in this beautiful hue to make a bold statement. This color works well in any room, from the bedroom to the living room, and can be paired with a variety of different styles and aesthetics.
