Transitioning to Blue

A very strange change has taken place in our house.  I am slowly but surely introducing more and more blue.  It all started when we painted our cabinets a blue/grey color and the only table runner that seemed to suit the new look was blue.

And then for our anniversary we bought these beautiful linen arm chairs.

They also happened to look best with blue pillows.

And then I fell in love with this blue and white painted glass window at a local antique mall…(only to find out from my art school husband it is not at all the work of art I thought it was.  Ah well, at least it was inexpensive!)

So suddenly the woman who  never liked blue, has a house full of it.

I read in an article that the color blue, “calms and sedates, cools and aids intuition.”

So maybe it’s all the supposed positive physical effects my senses are responding to.  I think every mom can use something to “calm and sedate…” Whatever the reason for the new found fondness I have for blue, the one thing I am sure of… I have never been so happy with the one room in our house that has always been my nemesis.

If you are curious as to what I have been up to,  this is it…when I am not changing diapers, cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping, etc, etc…this little project has been keeping me busy.

Happy Wednesday All!

    Beautiful! Blue is the main color we all wear, and the color of the table runner you gave me a couple years ago that I still use :)

    I love your new look – really opens the room up and truly is a calm, sedate look.

  6. The only thing missing in the pics is a steaming cup of coffee! It looks so cozy and beautiful Grace, love the blue. I’ve fallen for it too, our playroom is now sporting blue walls with white trim….hubby was proud of me, my first step from moving away from white or beige walls :)
