Love the blues…

Always drawn to blue accents, blue bedrooms, and luxurious finishes with a touch of worn blue…  all shades from pale powder to deep indigo bordering purple.  Most of these pictures are from Pinterest- a wonderful and terribly addictive website!

Perhaps it’s because I’m painting several pieces of furniture right now, but I absolutely love the surprise of color on the inside of this antique desk.  It’s it a fantastic surprise and a great way to use a bold color for those who are color-shy?!?

I love how Pamela Pierce has used a variety of blues in this room without making it too overwhelming or too matchy-matchy.  She is so good.

Shannon Bowers pretty settee that I just can’t get enough of and have posted repeatedly, not to mention all the other blogs whom have posted it too!  Love the color, ruffles, and the pop of hydrangea blue in the background.

More blue and natural linen color together.  Such a great combination, isn’t it? A blue chair is so fun.  I suggested my sister do this in her living room with this chair:

It isn’t always masculine.

So soothing.

Love the fluffy white cushions and the backdrop of French blue.  Inviting and elegant normally aren’t words that you hear together but this room does it.

And a last word that a pop of blue is really all one needs- this image is one of my favorites because of that one little square of blue.

These are definitely the best blues. I think blue is one of those colors you have to get just-right. And all of these are of the "just-right" kind!

Love that armoire!!
