Trend of 2012: Blue & Black Color Combination

The Trend of the Day: 
Blue & Black Color Combo!

Lets kick off our 30 days of new trends for 2012 with this color duo.  Not your typical color combination that you would put together off the top of your head; but no worries, pairing these colors will do anything but leave you feeling black and blue. Together the pair lends itself to a very classy look that you can apply as a whole room theme or use as fun accents on a bookcase, in artwork, or for accent pillows.

In the new January 2012 issue of Veranda this color combination was described as being “bold and dramatic without being showy…” So if you are looking for something new and fun to change up your house keep this beautiful color combination in mind!

Blue & Black bookcase simple!
I also love how the designer centered everything on each shelf.

This is a Rosslyn Papers wallpaper from Farrow & Ball.
It would look great as an accent wall, or paired with wainscoting.
Wallpaper is in!  We'll talk more on this later, but the possibilities with wallpaper are endless!

I love this combination with the bright blue table runner and the 
bold wallpaper paired with the high gloss black dining set.

Here is another overall room design with blue and black.
I love the blue velvet couch paired with the grey & black chairs and accents.
Also the staircase painted black is a nice touch as well.
