Last week I announced a new feature on the blog entitled #AAHouseCrush, offering you guys the opportunity to post in images of your pads that I would then showcase across my social media channels. I have to say we have been a little inundated which is super exciting. To kick-start the column I’ve bunched a number of images together. Sometimes I will feature just one pad, other times I’ll group together around a theme like today. Seems like everybody is a fan of the blues, check out the slideshow.

It’s a striking hue that makes a statement but also feels dreamy and tranquil at the same time. Also I’m delighted to put to bed all those stupid old myths about it being cold and unfriendly you only need to look at the images on the slideshow for that. Any colour goes with it and I’m blown away with how dramatic and luxurious everyone’s pad’s look. You can go deep and dark, or use paler tones, on walls, floors as an accessory. Plus you can also use it anywhere from the loo to the bedroom and again forget about never using it in north facing abodes (mumbo jumbo).

So there you have it a showcase of some of the coolest pads around using the rich, deeply luxurious, serene hue – blue. Thank you to everyone who posted in and if you would like me to feature one of your rooms or entire house on my House Crush column post them into social with the hash tag #AAHouseCrush.
