If you love a statement look and always aim to create some contrast in a room, opt for a sunny yellow shade - this bold colour offsets against most variations of blue quiet nicely. You don't need to sway from the classic neutral shades in order to achieve a striking look though - by providing a fresh yet polished feel, soft ivory shades work well in achieving a nautical look and are excellent colour choices to use in a bathroom. And if subtle shades are your preference, soft greys and metallic silver shades combine perfectly with any shade of blue to create a conservative yet stylish feel.
