My favourite place for blue is Master Bedrooms. So many people use white bedding and blue is so pretty with white.
And, blue can be a tricky colour to choose. If you don’t gray it down enough, it ends up baby blue on the walls and–unless you pair it with lots of white or a bright colour to warm it up—a gray/blue that’s too dark can end up looking too much like ‘teenage boys room’ or a ‘man cave’.
So when House Beautiful sent me their little book called Blue to review, I learned something new about blue. And here’s what it was:
If you keep it a happy, clear blue and you go darker, it works. Just like this wonderful blue above, Farrow & Ball Cook’s Blue 237. I’ve been specifying gray blues for so long, I never thought much about it. The only time I would pick a bright blue like the one above is if I was for a kids bedroom.
Blue is the world’s most favourite colour, so if it’s yours, this stunning little book with one beautiful room after another (and all with colour names) is for you! Click here to order your copy.
