Watercolours are an emerging trend in the UK at the moment – perhaps because they can be so ethereal and unique. There’s so much you can do with this trend. You can stain your bedroom wall your favourite blue to give an artsy feel, or head straight to one of my favourite designers, Bluebellgray to find some accessories for your home.
Whatever way you use it, it’s a fun, easy and edgy trend to get on board with and is a great way of modernising your home. Here are a few ideas to get you going…
In the living room
If you’re looking for something to give a bit of edge to your home, why not add a splash of watercolour to one of your plain walls? Yes, it might get confused with mould but that’s only if you choose green. I love the dark pastel blue of this colour.
‘Feathers’ is the third wallpaper design in the Mini Moderns ‘Hinterland‘ collection. It marks a repeat collaboration between Mini Moderns and artist, Matt Sewell. The design is based on Matt’s feather watercolours and would be a gorgeous addition to a bathroom – although it’s wallpaper it gives a distinct watercolour feel.
This looks like it could be a fun project with the kids, but is in fact wallpaper. You could create a DIY effect in your kitchen to add a splash of fun, or if you want to go all out you could actually do it yourself in your children’s nursery.
I adore this Bluebellgray Devon rug. You can use watercolours to accessorise your home too – whether it’s cushions, rugs or bedspreads, it’s a great way of bringing the trend into your space. Bluebellgray are well-known for their signature watercolour designs so make sure this is the first stop on your search!
