Our bestselling Electric Blue paint colour and how to style it in your home

By Emily Harnasz on

It's magical how a colour can be so beautifully vibrant, and almost like velvet once it's dry. Nature has given us plenty of origins to draw our inspiration from with this electrifying blue. We're obsessed with the colour of Dory, the stunning Tang Fish in Finding Nemo, the Purple Emperor butterfly, the Lapis Lazuli stone.

And for those in the know, and for those who don't, the YesColours Electric Blue paint colour is now one of the most truest shades available in the UK to the original Majorelle Blue created by Jacques Majorelle, which you can see adorning the fountain at the YSL Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech.

Oh, and in case you were wondering - yes, we now have our Electric Blue paint colour as a special edition masonry paint too.

Now, we know this particular hypnotising Electric Blue paint is not your typical run of the mill blue shade, so here we've gathered some inspiring ways to use this unique and immersive colour in your own home. Get ready for some electric tips to match our Electric Blue.


Upcycle your furniture.


Make a statement with this eye-catching paint shade by slathering it on old cabinets or side tables that might be in need of a new lease of life. Be sure to prime with something like Zinsser BIN before applying the emulsion and add a top coat for extra protection and you’re good to go!

Hidden delight.


Why not add a pop of this bold blue to your window recesses or window sills for a fun architectural statement that no one will expect. It goes against the norm and that's exactly why we love it.

Long live the feature wall.


This is the sort of colour that simply screams to be a feature wall. Imagine this inviting you up your stairway, encouraging the kids to get creative in their playroom or enticing you to get to work in your home office. Whichever wall you choose to use it on, having a punchy pop of Electric Blue means you’ll never feel uninspired again.

Small is beautiful.


We believe all spaces can and should be beautiful, therefore adding Electric Blue to a forgotten room like a closet or downstairs loo will bring new life to an otherwise unappreciated space. Creating little moments like these really are what make a house a home.

Step outside.


Use our limited edition Electric Blue exterior paint to adorn your courtyard, welcome new guests on your gateway or even outdoor furniture. After all, this colour was born for the Marrakech outdoors, so why not have a taste of it in your garden too?

If going the whole hog seems too daring for you but you still want a slice of this stunning colour somewhere in your life, buy a sample pot and create your own bespoke artwork with it.

Mix and match with some of your other favourite colours for a creative and unique feature to any space.
