When you want to transform a room into an entirely different animal, change the color.
Have you heard? Blue is in this season, whether it's called indigo, cobalt, greek or french blue. I know this because all my favorite shelter and online magazines told me. ;) However, I don't feel blue is ever really out. We have had it in our home for years and while I crush on other colors, I always come back to blue. I love it's moody personality. You get the saturation and drama of black without the bad attitude.
Last year, we painted our game room a deep shade of peacock and I am wild about it. It is sophisticated and cozy. I added navy velvet drapes to further create add to the cocoon-like feel. We now snuggle up in that fancy room and watch movies like it's our job.
I am dying to paint cabinetry in a high gloss rich blue tone. Isn't this butler's pantry just too much? I wonder if I can find a client willing. Hmmm....
Here are some juicy blue items that have been on my radar lately.
Whatever you do today, make it great!
