January Blues | Homewares


If you can’t beat ’em, join them. Embrace the January blues and transform your interior into a restful and soulful retreat with homeware in every shade of the blue hue; from soft steel blue through to uplifting cerulean and deepest indigo. With just a dash of forest green thrown in for good measure. Well, just because.

Proving that blue doesn’t need to feel cold, Farrow and Ball’s Pitch Blue emulsion is a rich blue shade that will add warmth to your walls, creating the perfect antidote to grey January skies.

A part of print designer Laura Slater’s Assemble/Configure collection, this abstract cushion illustrates the textile designer’s penchant for passionate and exuberant mark making. Its joyful expressionism certainly lifts my spirits!

Pretty much everything Scandinavian brand Muuto make is perfection. Their Unfold pendant is no exception, and this brilliant blue option will lend some zesty energy to an interior.

Danish brand AYTM curates finds from across the world alongside their own in-house designs. The Motum cushion comes in four colour options, all with contemporary graphic quilting. This dark and moody green dirties up a blue colour palette perfectly, adding warmth and depth.

You gotta know I love a bit of concrete! Toughness and fragility collide in the Willman vase by Menu which mixes the rawness of concrete with refined glassware.

The Knot Cushion was created for Design House Stockholm by Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir. The Icelandic designer’s mission is to create “products that are unpredictable and that make people curious”. And a bit of unpredictable curiousity sounds like the perfect way to shake off the winter doldrums!

Made in Portugal, the Olmo bowl is a part of Habitat’s tableware collection of the same name. The range comes in three shades of blue, spanning from deepest indigo through to earthy turqouise and palest sky blue. Due to the reactive glaze used, no two pieces are alike.

Taking inspiration from the traditional straw tatami mats of Japan, Barcelona based brand nnanimarquina combine the softness of New Zealand wool and the structure and brightness of jute to create this brilliant blue indigo rug. Guaranteed to lift your spirits and brighten up dull January days.

The Bauhaus inspired Outline wall hanging from Ferm Living uses laser cut MDF to create its linear geometric form. And the symmetry of geometric lines has been proven to have a soothing effect on the brain.

Available in two gorgeous greys and this deep forest green, this super-soft mohair blanket from Etcetera is perfect for snuggling up in and recharging for a while.
