FEELING BLUE.....

I have a new found love for the color blue. Not all shades of it, but the calm watery shades.














Aren't these spaces soothing? What colors are you feeling? How do you like to use colors? Do you like a neutral palette or an all around color explosion?!

The rooms are gorgeous & very serene! Are the walls in the 1st picture linen?

Andrea hi,

I think the top photo's wall is covered in grass cloth it has a textured feel to it.

I'm new to your blog and having a blast browsing through all of your older posts. I see that we have a few things in common! I also try to find the perfect balance between family/friends,the everyday hustle & bustle of life and having the necessary 'me' time that I crave & need. Also,I too am a HUGE Beyonce fan...
You have a warm,inviting blog w/ great interior design stories/ideas and inspiring stories about family & self.

Oh my. I'm thinking my bedroom will be blue very soon. Funny, by favorite color is blue, but I have NONE it in my home...yet. Your last picture (Grace Home) I just came across in House Beautiful the other day. Love, love, love the headboard. (That's what they were featuring, upholstered headboards, so i didn't see the entire room.) Thanks for showing the whole picture here.

Gorgeous selection of rooms! Love the top photo. I went to a home show today and the watery blues were everywhere...I don't think there is a more calming color.
