All dreamy summery blues, this mosaic-effect wallpaper speaks of blissful cloud-free days and hazy heat.

Classic meets modern as a vibrant aqua loveseat pops against a delicate grey-blue floral.

An ombré skyscape, hits of icy blue and a moon-inspired pendant create a scheme that’s out of this world.

Shadows of wind-swept clouds and a sheer drape’s cornflower hues bounce off a glass bookcase to ethereal effect.

Working soft, graduated geometrics across the floor and up into a decorative fireplace creates an edgy display.

A riot of ciel shades woven into a punchy wallpaper and oh-so-feminine chair creates a dazzlingly seductive clash.

The curvaceous lines and velvety finish of this luxe sofa and silver-splattered curtains nod to Art Deco glam.

A shower curtain awash with zesty greens, soft powder blue flooring and a sleek grey marble make for one zingy bathroom.

While a rich floral steals the show in this boudoir, the soft lavender throw is a serene foil to its dramatic good looks.
