We've been seeing beautiful shades of sky blue popping up all over the pages of House & Garden, sometimes decking out entire walls, sometimes used as an accent on furniture or woodwork. These colours seem to work well if they have a green undertone, and some even hover on the border between blue and green, and though pale, are deeply pigmented. They work wonderfully when combined with cheerful shades of pink and red, and also with yellow accents.
Sky blue is a wonderfully forgiving colour to paint an entire room. In a London house by Rachel Chudley, the warm tones of the new walnut parquet flooring set off the bespoke pale blue paint on the walls, which was developed by Rachel with New York colour consultant Donald Kaufman and now forms part of the Rachel Chudley Colour Studio range; it is enlivened by the wall trim, ‘Greek Key Border’ in grey from Adelphi Paper Hangings
Lucy Williams’s west London home’s hallway is a study in pink; Myland’s ‘Soho House’ adorns the walls and reclaimed quarry tiles line the floor. In a complementary tone, the stairs are painted in Paper & Paints’ ‘Porphyry Red’. The ceiling light is a Beata Heuman piece, whilst the pine wall light is vintage.
