From classic country homes to contemporary minimal interiors, duck egg blue is a colour trend that has transcended the shifts in time and style. This light and bright colour option provides a chic and calm ambiance that is perfect for relaxing home interiors. A shade of duck egg blue that is cool and calming to add a contemporary feel, it’s also romantic and pretty so doesn’t make your interiors cold and unwelcoming.
The beauty of duck egg is that it works so beautifully with other colours. This versatile colour can be partnered with both dark and light interior items and will give a sophisticated hint of colour without overpowering any existing furniture items or accessories. Lighter, cooler colouring establishes calm and tranquillity, sanctuary and security.
To find the perfect shade of duck egg blue, I gathered up all my favourite duck egg blue kitchen items from my vast array of kitchen tools to my favourite origami fairy lights…
The result? Opal blue is a beautiful crystalline and calm chalky pastel shade of duck egg blue, a milky subdued tone with broad appeal. Similar in tone to Cloud Pink, Opal Blue is a versatile pastel that can be many things. Fun and playful yet also elegant and calming, it’s timeless, too, looking equally at home in charming country cottages, grand French chateaux, retro 1950s-inspired kitchens and ultra-modern schemes. Wherever its used, this pretty half-blue-half-green shade creates a summery vibe that’s instantly uplifting.
