Have you entered my Shaklee Giveaway??
When Bette asked me to do a guest post, I was pretty excited - this being my first guest post and all. I had to think long and hard about what I wanted to write about and even take some time to get more photos to accompany the post. This post pretty much ties together some of my favourite themes - the colour blue, decorating, and taking photos. You can see more of all three at my blog, Sense and Simplicity.
Blue is the world's most popular colour, and just happens to be mine too.
I thought it would be fun to look at blues in nature and see how they inspire decorating.
The icy pale blues and gray-blues that you see in ice and snow:
can be seen in this lovely Swedish Gustavian-style dining room.
The soft gray seafoam blue in tumbling waves,
can be seen in this beachy blue bathroom.
The misty colours of rocks, lake, and the setting sun,
The periwinkle blues of the cornflower,
can be seen in this bathroom.
The pure blue of a summer sky,
can be seen in the simple blue and white bedroom.
The gorgeous blue in the forget-me-not flowers
can be seen in the blue of this cottage bedroom.
The darker purple-blue of a blueberry
can be seen in the blue backs to these bookshelves.
The deep blues of the sky at dusk,
can be seen in the inky walls of this blue living room.
What about you - what shade of blue inspires you?
