Picasso went through his monochromatic blue period ~ clearly, I am going through my own blue phase. I went through my first blue period when I was first married over ten years ago, but it was more of a cobalt blue fixation back then. Then I rejected blue altogether and banished it from my house. Blue was forbidden for years! But being a fickle and forgetful gal, I’ve returned to yet another blue and white phase, this time I’m drawn to soft gray blues, robin’s egg blue, soft turquoise, and intense hues like peacock blue.
My home office? My living room? My master bathroom? Yep, they’re mostly blue. I make no apologies, I happen to find the shade is extremely calming, and complements just about everything. Think about it. Soft blue works with chocolate brown, red, pink, orange, gray, green, white, everything ! So I prefer it over other colors, as long as it has plenty of gray in it.
Now I’ve gone and saturated the family room with blue too, but more by force than by choice. Allow me to explain.
