A key part of the interior design of The Cookie Jar is embracing the colour blue.

Each room has a tone of blue incorporated into the design – whether that is in the paint colour, fabric, lamps, artwork.

Some key items and ideas that you could implement in your own home are as follows:

  • Use the same colour but with different patterns – as seen in Linehope Spout, Holy Island, Bamburgh and Sweethope Lough
  1. A rich dark navy blue is used as the base colour in these rooms and is teamed together with the fabrics that all have this colour running through them too. But each fabric has a different pattern, so that gives each room an individuality and a contemporary feeling.
  2. A rich paint colour is used throughout for the woodwork in these rooms – Farrow & Ball – Hague Blue – to hold everything together and create further impact.
  • Don’t be nervous of being brave and putting patterns together that might ‘clash’ – as this can actually create a really interesting and fun design and stops the scheme feeling too ‘safe’
  • Wallpaper can also be a key factor to bringing interest to a room. Again, embrace the idea of linking the colours of your scheme together. For example, Holy Island and Bailiffgate use a wallpaper with a dark blue pattern to tie everything together.
  • Also look at how to accessorise your space
  1. Lighting plays a huge part in setting the tone and mood of a space. Look at bringing in textured lampshades to create a soft light in a bedroom environment.
  2. In a simpler scheme consider using a bold coloured bedside lamp or shade to add some impact to the scheme. In a busier space use a more paired back light, so that it does not distract from other elements of the design.
  3. Bring key colours into your artwork – either within the actual art or simply paint your picture frames in the same or similar colour as your woodwork or furniture, to create an overall cohesive feel.
  4. Within The Chapel, Linehope Spout, Holy Island and Bamburgh the rich and dark navy blue is broken up with a flash of a rich burnt red. This was used as either the bed throw or piping to the bed cushions – This linked all the different elements of the scheme together, and shows an eye for detail.
