Blue. It's my all-time favorite color for both clothing and Interiors. I love all shades of blue, from aquamarine to deep navy. It's calming by nature (literally releases calming hormones in the brain), and just so beautiful to look at. The house I grew up in had cobalt blue cabinets with white countertops. I didn't even realize how cool it was at the time, but as I look back, I admire my Mom's bold choice. She also loved art and accessories in blue, which may be why I grew to love it so much. Thanks for being an inspiration, Mama!

Are you feeling it? Do you think you would like a bold, blue room in your house? We just painted a small TV room a beautiful shade of navy in a house I'm working on. I can't wait until it's finished so I can show you pictures! It's going to be amazing.
