The New Primaries: Say Hello to Pretty Periwinkle

Alluring tones of powder, sky and sea blue are on the horizon…

This year, get ready to see red, yellow and blue as you’ve never seen them before. 2016 has ushered in a series of elegant updates to the three primary colours in chic shades you’re sure to love – like the periwinkle blue of the Armchair One from Another Country pictured above this post.

We all like to be beside the beach, and this tone will certainly transform your space into a cool, coastal-hued hideaway. Warmer than the icy blue tones that prevailed last year, and stronger than your average pastel, this shade is a surefire way to create a relaxed and elegant feel. Fabrics such as wool and linen can be relied upon to complete this soft seaside look, so keep your finishes matte for a cosy feel all year round.
