Trend: Blue Bedrooms

Did you know that blue bedrooms are on the up for Spring, especially darker indigo tones? However, you'll need to make sure you keep the dark and light balance in check by introducing a neutral coloured bedstead - contrast can be a very effective tool if implemented in the right way.
