I have long since waxed poetic on the use of blues in the home. But sometimes it takes a fashion trend to emerge for home brands to catch up on what we already know. If blue is chic, then powder blue takes it to a whole other unexpected level…
And while there are many ways to ‘do’ this color in a home, I have to say I really love it most when it’s paired unexpectedly in a more glamorous situation, amongst black and white and gold. That rusty red is also a fabulous accent color with it.
Apparently, I really have a thing for this blue when it’s tufted. Paired with fresh green and white certainly isn’t a bad place for it to be – I’ve always loved the preppy nature of this bedroom.
And neither is the back of a kitchen cabinet, as a totally unexpected pop color. Just be warned that when you go to use this hue on the walls you better be doing a room that looks nothing like a nursery. Or it will look like a nursery. Better to err on the side of a french blue than baby blue.
