Beach Hut Blues

Adele Shotton-Pugh | Posted

Marine blues represent the true blue side of the oceans colour palette as they contain little or no green undertones. Their hue is more pure and evocative of clear blue skies and deeper parts of the ocean.

They contrast well, even vibrantly, with white and are deep enough to co-ordinate with warmer colours from the colour spectrum such as red.

Maritime themed blue, red and white striped armchair in a beach hut

The striking deckchair stripe used on this inviting easy chair combines an aquamarine tone with marine blue and red to create a stunning effect! The white-washed cabin and untreated, sand brushed, floor showcase this chair beautifully and the co-ordinating fabrics depicting sail boats,  sea shells and a geometric reef design provide a subtle but unmistakeable nod to the nautical theme. The scheme is bright, cheerful and uplifting and whilst this marine collection may be all blues, the atmosphere and ambience it creates is anything but!

The collection works equally as well outdoors, against wooden decking and white-washed timber again and has been used here to give two vintage style deck-chairs a fun and funky makeover. I could happily sit here and watch the sun go down slowly over the yard arm, armed with a glass and a good book!
