Petrol Blue Feature

Petrol blue is deep and inky, with a hint of green, that acts as a perfect accent colour in the home. Bringing with it a sense of warmth and depth, petrol blue works well in the contemporary coastal home. It is a fabulous choice for the well-travelled, eclectic home, and also adds a pop of colour in neutral home décor schemes.

Petrol blue works with a myriad of other colours and tones to create a balanced living space. Tan and petrol blue, for example, are a match made in interior heaven. Petrol blue also ties in beautifully with other jewel-toned colours, and it works with all neutrals.

Petrol Blue Kas Australia

In this contemporary  quilt cover by KAS Australia, petrol blue is paired with harmonious shades of mint and grey. They work beautifully together to deliver colour, but in a restrained way that is conducive to creating a peaceful bedroom.

Petrol Blue Satara

Kitchens are a major investment in the home, and they work best in white or neutral colourways. As seen with this stunning Satara stool, a piece of furniture in petrol blue is a great way to add a pop of colour to a neutral base. It acts as a feature piece for this beautiful kitchen.

Petrol Blue Amalfi
