From turquoise to ultramarine: bathing in blue

Blue is probably the most popular colour of all in European countries. We associate blue with relaxation, the vastness of the sky and life-giving water. Colour providers have greatly modernised the palette of blue shades in recent years, resulting not just in innovative colours for the wall but in new variants for tiles that create a cosy effect as well.

The interior design world’s rediscovery of marble is encouraging the use of blue sanitaryware. Combined with sand hues, blue creates a style related to the popular Scandinavian look, and anyone looking for an alternative to the hip black trend can opt for sumptuous ultramarine instead. The more vibrant the shade, the more luxurious it looks.
