Living with Colour – January Blues!

Yes, the January Blues are an actually thing! After all the highlights and sparkle of the festive season coming to an end, we’re now starting to accept the cold, dark and gloomy days that can have a negative impact on your mood.

Changing your interiors to brighten up your day and decorating with certain styles and colours can really make a difference and help enhance your mood.

“There’s nothing basic about the colour blue! Wherever we turn, a shade of blue can always be seen. The sky, deep lakes and beautiful blue blooms. With an array of tones from moody blue hues to fresh duck egg shades using this colour can create a mood-lifting ambiance and enhance your home.” says Abigail Watson, Co-Founder 1838 Wallcoverings.

Here’s our Top 3 Blue Wallpaper picks…

This is the first place you enter, and the first-place visitors experience in your home, so creating a light and welcoming feel to your hallway that creates a lasting impression. Try playing with different scale, shapes and colours. This can be achieved through interesting vases, table lamps and candles. Adding a large mirror creates great reflective qualities whilst metallic wallpaper adds a luxurious feel. Finish the overall look by choosing flowers which leave a heavenly scent!



Linea Denim from 1838 Wallcoverings

Dining Room

Create the perfect back drop too your furniture and tableware with our contemporary, textured striped wallpaper. Surface printed layers of blue and taupe are brought to life by adding grit for a textured finish. Traditionally, stripes have been hung vertically. We love the edgy look of this dining room where the wallpaper has been hung horizontally.



Madama Butterfly January Blues

Living Room

Adding wallpaper to a feature wall can instantly uplift an existing scheme in a living room, without the expense of purchasing soft furnishings. A wallpapered feature wall draws in the eye and creates a beautiful, striking feature. We have complemented our Madama Butterfly wallpaper by covering the remaining walls with our Gio design creating a modern contrast to a floral design.
