Decorating with Color: Blue

While you are dreaming of oceans and pools let's explore decorating or redecorating in blue this Spring/Summer. Blue conveys new beginnings, purity, tranquility, harmony and wisdom. Blue is also the universal color of nature.

This classic color has been used in decoration for centuries in Africa. Bring a touch of African-inspiration into your home with blue in its various hues {indigo, cobalt, turquoise...}. The color pairs perfectly with a lot of colors especially white.

Be inspired by some of my favorite blue pieces and spaces below

                                              Small Blue and White Wicker Basket by Danye





I am obsessed with the color blue, don't you just love it?
