My love of jewel tones is over for the moment. There’s a new love in town… blue! No matter what you call it, sea-foam, turquoise, aqua, sky blue, periwinkle or cerulean, I’m just so drawn to this color. It works in every room of the house and it’s just so darn inviting! It’s such a soothing, clean, tranquil color. The rooms I’ve redone recently in my house have been done in a shade of blue and they are the spaces I want to hang out in. You can make the walls blue but there are other great ways to incorporate the color too. Take a look!
Paint your furniture blue! When I first started this blog, I redid this dresser in a turquoise blue for a friend. Pretty huh?
Just look at this distressed cabinet from Better Homes and Gardens and this dresser with the stenciling on the front. Gorgeous!
Blue causes the body to produce calming chemicals, so it is often used in bedrooms. Hey, maybe instead of taking Ambien, people could just paint their bedrooms blue?
Blue tiles in the bathroom. Love!
Add in some touches of blue with furniture and accessories too!
Love how soft and pretty this blue living room is. In our gray, dreary Oregon weather, this would really be a great color choice for brightening up your mood!
House of Turquoise
If only I were lucky enough to have a porch like this! You might not really care what color your pillows were if you had a view like this one, but why not match them to the ocean?
A splash of blue in the kitchen looks so clean and bright. You could add tile or paint the cabinets blue. Oolala!
So many beautiful ways to decorate with blue! I hope some of these photos will help inspire you to incorporate some blue into your home.
