Happily, pastels are big news this spring with duck egg blue leading the pack as one of the season’s favourite hues. Could this timeless shade be just the thing to give your home a fresh new look for the season? Our post today may just convince you!
What colours look good with duck egg blue?
One of the most effective ways of using duck egg blue is combining it with similar shades. Spring green and turquoise works particularly well with this shade, creating a tranquil look perfect for a living room or a bedroom.
It also contrasts beautifully with rose pink or warm reds. Our Jasmine accent chair in Linen and Bamboo Spice fabric shown above is perfectly offset against duck egg blue walls for a more contemporary take on this much-loved shade but you can use a softer pink as well if you prefer a more traditional look in your interiors.
For a fresh look, embrace a more coastal style by combining it with white, natural wood tones and other shades of blue. Add clear glass elements and loosely arranged flower arrangements for the finishing touch.
