How to choose blue bedding?
A good place to start seeing up your new blue oasis is bedtime. Blue bedding can be a simple way to add a splash of blue to your bedroom while you test the colour out. First, think about what shade of blue you prefer. Have a scroll through Instagram and Pinterest to see what shades make you feel most relaxed. It’s important to choose a soft, smooth fabric that will keep you comfortable. Going for a neutral navy blue bedding set gives you room to play around with complimentary shades and will go with plenty of accessories. Bamboo adds a silky, stylish finish to your bed and is a dream to snuggle up in. The natural, breathable fabric is thermoregulation, making it perfect for every season. So you can keep your blue bedroom and sleep nice and fresh from winter to summer.

Blankets and throws in different shades of blue can add texture and a focus point, whether you drape them over your bed or a chair. Cushions are another easy way to add a touch of colour and keep you comfy (especially if you are working from home) Or perhaps for your ‘something blue’ you go for some colourful artwork. There are some budget and planet-friendly creative shops where you can pick up pre-loved pieces that could be the perfect fit for your blue room. Have some fun shopping around and see what you can find.
