Welcome to Mykonos
Bright blue skies may be something of a rarity here in the UK, but the colour Mykonos blue is lifting the atmosphere with its tropical quality. Mykonos is a beautiful Greek island landscaped with whitewashed villas, surrounded by crystal clear water and sculptured with stunning architecture. The island also lends its name to a bright blue hue that is perfect for enhancing a space with some Greek serenity.
Introducing a pop of colour into a neutral scheme can refresh the look of your living space without having to do a complete decoration overhaul. Keeping the rest of the room light and airy means that you can create a natural Greek ambience. By including a geometric patterned rug it will evoke the feeling of mosaic tiles, which are often featured in Greek architecture and art. It’s also bang on trend this season.
A neutral coloured small sofa in our Marl Cream fabric will perfectly complement the cool, refreshing vibe of the blue in any space and help prolong summer in your home. Fabric sofas go particularly well with Mykonos blue as they tend to keep the room feeling warm and comfy. Accessorising your sofa with some accent scatters can enhance your look and is an inexpensive way to adorn your space.
Blue tinted sea glass and old-fashioned ink bottles offer a simple but effective way of adding a feature to a white, wood coffee table to really finish your space.
