This attention grabbing blue is one of my favorites. I’m so happy to hear it’s expected to be popular this coming spring. Pantone has a version of it they call ‘Lapis Blue’ in their 2017 Spring Fashion Color Report. There are many ways I would describe this color: sapphire blue, cobalt blue, bright blue, navy blue, royal blue and indigo to name a few.  Whatever you calll it, I’m looking forward to seeing more of this bold blue in the coming months. But for now, let’s take a look at some fun design ideas using this color trend.

A small amount of well-placed ‘Lapis Blue’ accents in a white room creates a stunning effect. Beautiful!

You could definitely turn some heads with this gorgeous bright blue dress…

‘Lapis Blue’ works beautifully with light, natural woods and painted white brick. Add in a small amount of black accents and the look is complete.

For a nautical design, use royal blue stripes on white with some monogrammed details. The result is crisp, fresh and inviting!

Now we’re talking! This electric blue long coat would look great over an all black outfit. I’m in love!

If you want your front door to draw attention, go with a ‘Lapis Blue’ colored entry door. I love this modern glass entry with bright blue frame!

White and ‘Lapis Blue’ are the perfect mates. I love how the designer used the blue accent on the stair treads for a floating effect.

This particular shade of blue looks lovely with gray. It’s a soft yet sophisticated combination.

How fun! A cobalt blue bunny on a white background. I love it!
