Blue: Smart buys under £50

I received new wallpaper samples from Scion, one of my favourite wallpaper and fabric suppliers, and that gave me an idea for this week’s smart buys. I built the whole scheme around this stunning kaleidoscopic wallpaper. Read on to see my home office design. But first here are my blue smart buys under £50.

Blue smart buys products


1/ Scion Axis blue wallpaper available from my KB shop, £32.00 per roll

2/ Blue geometric cushion from Zazzle, £22.95

3/ Letter rack holder from Amazon, £8.93

4/ Cali table lamp from Dunelm, £29.99

5/ Light blue pencil pot holders from Amazon, £2.35 each

6/ Blue Rune rug from Urban Outfitters, £49.00

 So now to my home office design. I think blue with orange are such a great combo for an office environment. Blue gives you calmness and allows you to focus and concentrate while orange brings in the punch and keeps your brain alert.

To break the scheme a bit, I introduced a little bit of lilac in the curtain fabric. I really like this ombre trend right now.  Designer’s Guild has the most beautiful ombre fabrics on the market at the moment. The colour choices are just stunning. Using this fabric against the bold geometric wallpaper and in a complementary colour rather than matching colour brings some more interest and “not so matchy” look.

So what do you think? Can you see this bold wallpaper in your home somewhere?

Have a great weekend!
