"All About Blue"

As I previously mentioned, I love the magazine, House Beautiful. I was reading their March issue, "All About Blue," and was reminded why blue is so luscious and beautiful. My favorite blue is aqua because it has always reminded me of a tropical island and the color of the crystal clear water. Think aqua paired with light pink, hot pink, coral, red, or chocolate brown.

When we 1st moved into our house we had our house painted. The 1st floor colors stayed the same, but the walls got a fresh coat. Upstairs, I chose the color for my dressing room and our bedroom & bathroom. My husband decided he would choose the color for the spare bedroom. He chose a light blue. At first I was hesitant because I've never loved light blue, but the color is so refreshing and reminds me of a perfect summer day.

My mother-in-law has also used many shades of blue in her house and it looks amazing- a shade of blue in the office, blue curtains in the dining room, a blue couch in the living room. I will try to get some pictures and post!

I fell in love with these photos from the March 2010 Issue, and I'm sure you will, as well. I hope they inspire you to add a few shades of blue in your home!

Love the pop of the blue lamps against this gorgeous gold wallpaper:
LOVE this luxurious bedroom!!
