I can't say that I have ever in my life thought of my favorite color being blue. Not once. It has always seemed so "boyish" to me!! Which I know sounds so weird, but I grew up in an entirely pink room, carpet walls, the whole shabang! So, blue was never a color I entertained growing up. Never wore it, never decorated with it, never owned any blue items. Until now. I have 3 rooms in my home with a shade of blue on the wall. My guest bath is a light shade of sky blue, we call it our "beach bathroom". My dining room is a shade of blue/gray/green. Is that bad of me to say that as a designer?? Oh well, we keep it real here!! It is a weird shade that looks green in some light and blue in others. Not what I was expecting, but I like it just the same. And now my office is a very light shade of gray/blue. Very bright and soothing and a great place to work. I am not sure when my love of blue developed. It came on very suddenly! But I do find myself drawn to things that are the color blue. Maybe it has to do with my husband. He went to the Air Force Academy and their colors are blue and silver, and he loves blue. Maybe it is because of our recent move back to Indiana and my love of the Colts?? I don't know! All I know is that blue is slowly starting to take over my home and it makes me a bit nervous!!!
These pictures are not my home ( I wish)!! But they show great examples of how to use a color and not go overboard with it! Splashes of blue are everywhere in this home. Very clever.
What do you think about the color blue??? Do you have a color you said you would never use and now you find yourself drawn to it???
