When we think of the color blue our minds often wander to natural bodies of water that offer a sense of peacefulness and calm. Rivers, lakes, the sea and the most striking shades of blue that can be found in the mediterranean - these are what we think of and are places that you would normally find us during this season. These certainly are not normal times and this summer we will be spending a majority of our days at home. We love the idea of using this calming color in our home whether it be with a splash of paint on the walls, a piece of furniture upholstered or painted in a shade of blue, or more subtly with decorative items such as vintage art. We have rounded up some of our favorite interiors that use various shades of our current favorite hue and hope that you love them as much as we do.
we love a pop of color on a furniture piece and think this vintage daybed is perfection!
the striking blue used in this kitchen has us daydreaming about a trip to the greek islands
if you're attempting to achieve a moody and romantic aesthetic, opt for a darker shade of blue like the one used on this beautiful cabinet
a bold entryway that doesn't shy away from color
subtle pops of blue from these beautiful vintage paintings
a colorful floor is so unexpected and we are so inspired by the floor of this room painted in the prettiest shade of blue
this dusty shade of blue gives this small space a touch of character
