Interiors are Singing the Blues....and Mustards

According to folks in the know, 2015 is the year of blue and mustard, says Canadian Interiors, which recently published Versa's trend forecast.  Every value and hue of blue is showing up in fabrics, interiors, carpeting and furniture. You’ll find it in conservative navy suits, All-American faded denim, international indigo dyes, the turquoise of island waters, the purpled blue of heather, and pale blue of ice and birds’ eggs. It’s also making a strong appearance in multi-blued accessories.
