Summertime Blue(s)

Blues are such a breath of fresh air in the summer heat - they refresh and cool a space, and can bring a surprising pop as well...
An easy way to add a bit of blue to your own home for the season? Start a little collection of new and vintage vessels in varying shades... Textured blue walls with quatrefoil mirrors seem to be doing it for me... adding a touch of exotic decor or detailing helps puts a traditional color in a different light.Want to go for something a bit unexpected? Treat a thrift store chair to a little makeover in a strong shade of aqua - a perfect compliment to warm woods and whites.
