Lovin' Blue

     As you may be able to tell, I love the color blue.  I have used other colors in decorating but I always seem to be drawn back to blue.  It is such a calming and soothing color - that's probably part of the reason I like it so much.  But the shades of blue that I gravitate towards have changed over the years.  I am really liking the soft aqua blues these days.  Here are a few of my favorite blue things around my house:

a basket with great texture


a soft comfy throw


wooden candlesticks


a small ceramic strainer I use for soaps in the bathroom


a wire basket

     Is there a color that your eye always goes to?

         Hope you're having a calm and peaceful day - it's a good thought anyway!

  1. I am just starting to love blue. It reminds me of the ocean. I used to only decorate with neutrals so I'm enjoying a small bit of color in my home.

  2. I also love the color blue, what a coincident! Blue always seems to stick out whether it's the beautiful sky or a calm pond, blue is always there.
