something blue… for the home

Everyone is well aware of the wedding tradition rhyme ‘Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’ and try their best to incorporate each piece into their special day, in hope it will bring them good luck and fortune. And it’s not just the wedding this tradition can be applied to; continue it through to your married life by adding gorgeous blue home touches to your Wedding Gift List. It’ll hopefully bring you many years of happiness and romance to your sweet abode.

A great place to start is by filling your newly wedded home with stylish pieces of furniture. The Painted Classic Shaker Table And Chairs makes an impressive centrepiece with its simple, vintage design while the Set Of Two Chairs are a striking alternative, painted in five shades of breezy blue, and would make an exquisite addition to any dining room. The Victorian Pine Kitchen Table by Katie Bonas has beautifully painted duck egg blue legs while the top has been left to show the natural beauty of the pine. Although these items may be a little bit pricey, with Wedding Gift List Contributions available there’s no need to feel cheeky adding these gorgeous pieces to your gift list.

Kitchenware makes a great addition to any Wedding Gift List and it’s a whole lot more fun wishing for colourful plates and bowls rather than your traditional white dinner set. Jules China has a collection of Blue Terracotta Tableware and Linda Bloomfield has different sized Porcelain Bowls, both perfect when entertaining friends. I love the Handmade Earthenware Jug by Sylph Baier as this would be a fab accessory for any tea party. Other stylish blue kitchen accessories are the Sedum And Squares Table Runner, the Cake Tin – Shutter Blue and the Personalised Painted Kitchen Sign.

It wouldn’t feel like home without some lovely homely touches. The ‘Home’ Framed Artwork by Kelly Contemporary is a perfect start with a colour choice of baby and navy blue. Other welcoming touches are the Ticking Stripe Cushion, the Handmade Porcelain Hanging Vase and the Book Endings Book Ends. Decorate the walls with a By The Seaside print or a Personalised Coordinate Print holding the romantic memories of your honeymoon. Another option is the Vintage Style ‘British Railways’ Hook Board – a stylish choice for hanging coats up.

Keep your rooms bright and cheery with a retro-inspired Multi Angle Lamp by Rose & Grey. But for something more subtle opt for these stunning Jewel Lanterns by Berry Red – they’re lovely for creating a warm ambience. There are even a few lovely blue products for your garden too. This Folklore Bird Nesting Box is in a traditional house style which will be sure to encourage birds to nest. And there’s the Trowel and Fork Set by The Balcony Gardener that will bring a new stylish dimension to your digging and planting.
