Blue Ribbon Blues

I have been so drawn lately to shades of deep, beautiful blues. Navy to peacock to indigo...I can't get enough of these gorgeous colors.

I first saw it last year on Centsational Girl's bamboo dresser makeover.


And I've been seeing it pop up more and more.

    











I'm trying to work up the nerve to incorporate some bold color into my house. I'm desperate to get rid of these plain white walls but it's a big step to make that first brushstroke of color!  These pictures are pretty good motivation, though...










And to save the best for last, my lovely friend Kim set her magic brushes upon this New York State of Mind table


I must really have it bad for the blues - I set out to include just a few inspiration pics but clearly this has snowballed out of control. Congratulations if you made it all the way to the end!

What color crushes have you had lately?

  1. I think they are all Blue-tiful! I love blue and white together. When I want a pop of color on my walls I usually will paint just one wall in the room (Usually the one with the most windows) and I really have liked that effect. I stayed to the end because they all looked great. Ann

  2. What a pretty color! I was looking around my house trying to see where I could fit that color in.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  3. I'm especially love peacock blue lately. The photo of the white & brown stairwell with that rich blue wall is my favorite.

  4. Thanks for the kind words on my post! And I think I could paint my whole house blue. I love it so much. I loved those patio pieces but maybe that is because I've been porch shopping lately! :) Love your blog name. Erin

  5. I'm not really a blue girl, except turquoise. You are making me think twice!
    Beautiful Emily!

  7. Oh, I love all the blues. Blue has always been my favorite color. My walls in my living room are currently that old country sponge painted blue and accents of Maroon. I was thinking I was ready to change from Blue but this post has me rethinking that. Maybe just an updated look with accents of deep blue. I love it. Thank you.
