One of the most popular colours from the 2017 Plascon Colour Forecast, Windblown (B6-B1-2), is the perfect colour for adding some calm and inspiration to our busy lives.

As blue lies between green and purple on the colour wheel, it can lean toward either of the hues. Plascon’s Windblown leans toward purple, making it slightly warmer than ice blues.

Windblown’s ability to soothe, refresh and balance, means that it works well in any room of the house and is also great for work spaces, as can be seen from the inspiration below.

Add some punchy brights to liven up the blue and give it a contemporary look. Yellows, oranges and pinks will not only warm but also add balance to the scheme. You can get some wonderful inspiration on Pinterest, for example:
