Why so blue?

Living room by Peter Dunham

I really like the color blue (even more so now that my two-year-old nephew goes around declaring that "bwoo" is his favorite color). It really is suitable in a range of interiors, but its soothing effects are universal.

When paired with a neutral color scheme, it creates an atmosphere of cool and quiet....

But, when paired with gold accents, it is the epitome of sophistication.

Whether streamlined traditional....

..... Or fresh and funky (love that Frances Elkins chair!)....

Bedroom by Sara Tuttle

... Glammed up with Hollywood-regency style....

.... Or punctuated with drama-inducing colors like black and red....

This leopard actually can change its spots!

Have a happy Thursday, everyone!
