Into The Blue

January is a great time to reflect upon personal style. A new year always sparks talk about trends, hot colors and what to expect in the coming months ahead. As I contemplate renovating our family room this year, the one element that I already know will remain constant is the color blue. While the furniture might get replaced or reupholstered, I’m happy to say that the palette will not change. I love the serene feelings that blue lends to a space, whether it’s a whole room or just a few accents. Speaking of constants… I also still love the design work of Steven Gambrel, whose sophisticated interiors really showcase the color blue so beautifully.

    My Grandmother Elsie had a home full of beautiful soft robin's egg blue and gold. She passed away when I was little but I still remember being enveloped by blue and knew right where to go for the shoe lid of crayons, paper and hershey bars. I do love how blue reminds me of her.
    Good luck with adding blue to your family. I mean beautiful blue.

  2. I have decided to go with soft cotton blue for my living room accented with silver and white to match my TV and flueless gas fires surrounds. I love some of the furniture you have pictured, thanks for some nice tips!

  6. Sue I love the image of the living room with the octagonal ottoman in front of the fireplace. I always think of blue as calming, soothing, enveloping.

  9. I love blue! I know everyone is saying this is the year for green, and I already have quite a bit of that in my home, I'm finding myself gravitating more and more to blues.
