Fashion for the Home – Deep Blues

blue The noble blue in all its shades from aquamarine to deep dark blues have continued to be at the peak of  fashion trends for several seasons in a row. As you know what turns up on the runway usually turns up in interior fashion and these lovely dark blues are no exception.

While I tend to lean toward the light and bright I can’t help but notice how amazingly sophisticated these deep blues look in the home. Inky blues make a great background for bold art and pops of color, complements the warmth of wood grain, bring out the shine of metallic, and add brightness to pale neutrals. Like denim it goes with just about anything and pairs equally well with neutrals, bold colors and pattern.

I will admit the floor to ceiling blue is quite a commitment. If  you not feeling bold enough for all over blue maybe just an accent wall or try a deep blue sofa or accent piece. It would be amazing on the ceiling, like the night sky. No matter where you put it, it  will definitely add impact to any space.

What do you think? Is this bold blue the new black? Are you willing to give it a try?

    I love the first room. So beautiful! I’ve always wanted a place that over-looks the city.

I'd love to hear what you think!
