Decorating Colors - A Symphony of Blues

This is the second in this series inspired by the September, 2011, issue of House Beautiful - their annual color issue.  This article presented the ideas of designer Rhoda Payne who feels that blues don't need to match - they just go together so well!  She is obviously a woman after my own heart because blue is my favorite decorating color - I have blues all over my home.  I also collect blue and white porcelains and spread them in with any and all other color schemes.  Some refreshing ideas include:

  • Using periwinkle blue to paint windows and shutters to create a friendly look
  • Using an aqua blue rug with multiple different blue colored accents in living room
  • Using delft blue wall tiles and a wedgwood blue walls in the kitchen
  • Using a pistachio stained kitchen cabinets
The overall look is young, fresh, and, yes, FRIENDLY!
