Bold Blue

A little something about me that you might not know: I'm psychic.  And I know what you've been doing.  You have been hemming and hawing for far too long about what color to paint that room.  You know the room I'm talking about.  Want my advice?  Blue.  Bold beautiful blue.  Cobalt for drama.  Or peacock for playfulness. Your choice.

Wow. Blue is usually not my go-to color, but these are very compelling examples ... esp. #2!

Wow, seriousely, how did you know I had trouble choosing on one color for my bedroom...
but I'm sorry to disappoint you but due to only being allowed to use mineral paint pastel paint is the only option for me :(
Check back on my blog to see the outcome I will post in a few weeks. ;)
Love.
Jay.

Blue is my colour- although I have a mudbrick home which is a kind of latte brown I have lots of white and then use blue accessories in the form of soft furnishings and china. My kitchen tiles are blue and white. We built this house nearly 20 yrs ago and I never tire of it. It doesn't really date either. xxCorrina.

I don't have a speck of blue in my house, but that bistro and the dining room w/ chandelier looks wonderful swathed in it.
