Ikea catalog 2018 and deco in blue in all its nuances
We dare to plunge into the big blue because the trend in 2017/2018 in terms of interior decoration is blue in all its forms. All shades of blue are allowed at home. This blue wave affects furniture as well as decorative accessories.
The petrol blue or the duck blue are shades of blue that are in the spotlight in the interior decor this year. The colors are obscure but looking for chic at a low price we come to find it thanks to dyes covering furniture, paint on the walls and some decorative objects. All objects are not blue because copper objects and metal objects imitating gold or just gold are very trendy too.
The most popular fabrics in dark blue, duck blue, petrol blue or a shade are velvet, satin and cotton. We will mention here that almost all the pictures we have chosen for you, there are flowers or green plants that are part of the decor and specially cataloged in Ikea catalog 2018.
The furniture in blue duck or some shades of blue that you could get for your living room, bedroom or hallway are cupboards, dressers or cubes that can serve as shelves.
This type of shelf has more advantages than disadvantages. It is true that their limited height does not allow you to store large books but the layout you can find at these cubes at home may not be fixed. Indeed, you have the freedom to scatter them all over the wall at home. By the way, you’ll get them in almost every color, so you can combine the blues with others, as shown in the picture below.
We told you about friendly landscaping when we listed the trends to follow this year. The friendly arrangement is among them. What does it mean exactly? The friendly arrangement allows you to store your little ones’ toys next to your own belongings. The general idea that combines with another general idea, namely to live in a stress-free environment, is to no longer make the strict division between what belongs to you and what your child plays. In other words, it is no longer impossible from the decorative point of view to see small plays in the living room for example.
The idea of open space is very fashionable and it translates into a sharing with people in a friendly and friendly atmosphere without sharing the objects that are part of the decoration. The Ikea catalog explains the principle very well and illustrates it through various images. Regarding the friendly atmosphere in the open space for adults, we have selected some pictures for you that you will see below.
Ikea catalog 2018: the decoration in blue and dividing walls
It is very fashionable to live in an open space such as a studio, a loft, etc. In this open space, it will sometimes be better to provide a separating wall or separator furniture to properly form corners whose function may be different. You are under no circumstances obliged to build a real wall. The dividing walls we are discussing here are nice dividers, like the one shown below. You see a slight metal or plastic construction that does not obstruct you in any way visibility or passage.
The dividing wall can be a piece of furniture with shelves open on both sides where you can store decorative objects, books, plants, etc. Indeed, you have free way as to how you will express your tastes and preferences.
In addition, the arrangement of a table and chairs arranged around may constitute such a corner in a room.
The floral separator wall is the last example of this sub-category that we are going to show you. The climbing plants in the middle of the room are indeed a living and fresh dividing wall.

Now back to the dark decor and ask ourselves the question why this choice of colors is fashionable. Indeed, the shades of blue that were mentioned earlier are in vogue this year because the blue duck or peacock in English, as well as the dark blue color are in the palette of royal colors. To decorate in blue and its dark shades is to decorate chic at affordable prices.
Tinting or painting in this way gives your home an interesting and original look without having the shock effect. On the contrary, these cold colors soothe the atmosphere and do not create a feeling of tension in the inhabitant. It may be that the atmosphere is not really warm but the chic is not at all warm prices.
Decorative objects that go well with dark dyes are living objects, gold-colored objects, or pastel-colored objects. In this way, bright or soft touches (in case of pastel-colored decor) revive the dark complexion.
Luminous bodies are accessories that play an extremely important role in an interior dyed in blue, gray, dark green. Metal as the chosen material for lamps and shades is a good choice. In this way, the artificial light brought is accompanied by an additional shine that shines instead of illuminating only.
In addition, shiny objects give the complexion or pastel paint a contrasting glow. All accessories with shimmering effect brings its touch bling bling often sought by many of us all!
And speaking of the bling bling, here is a decorative object that is almost unavoidable today: the mirror ball! Indeed, the disco ball is since its appearance in the 50s, in France it seems, the accessory that does not stop to please. Always in fashion, it will probably never be obsolete. And to close the blue chapter alone, blue combined, specify that the golden mirror ball would fit better in a dark and pastel decor that the mirror ball classic.
Furnish a clear interior, or even painted white, with blue duck furniture is also very fashionable. In addition, for many of you, white is the color of walls par excellence. What you can do, too, is paint a single wall in duck blue and leave the other white walls.
