Duck Egg Blue: Your New Favourite Colour

What do you get when you combine the two trendiest colours of the year – blue and green – and interpret it in the softest pastel hue? You get one of the most relaxed and elegant shades of all: Duck Egg Blue.

It’s a shade that reminds us of those perfect little boxes of jewellery from Tiffany’s, the quintessential colour of Spring, the softest and easiest colour to live with. It’s a shade that truly never goes out of style, having been popular for at least the last 20 years and certainly not going anywhere.

With its proven longevity and the ease with which it combines with so many hues and materials, Duck Egg Blue is the perfect colour to decorate your home this Spring and Summer.

Of course, we’re a bit partial to this shade as our best-selling Jasmine Sofa in Duck Egg Blue is the ultimate centrepiece for a stunning lounge. We’ve shared our styling tips here but we especially love it set with some country charm.

Consider off-setting this cool shade with some warmer metallics to bring it up to date. Copper is a great foil for this shade of blue-green as shown in the deVOL kitchen below.
