I've been getting very excited about blue paint color for walls. Did you know blue is the number one paint colour in homes in North America?
When using blue paint be careful not to select drab or dated looking colours. Blues of today are warm (hint of red undertone) and fresh.
Here are a few photos for some inspiration for you!

This fresh blue looks stunning against the white trim and marble. Adding in the blue and white ceramics provide a lovely grounding for the walls.
Blue looks striking when combined with black and white! This blue reminds me of Bombay Saphire's blue gin bottle...makes me thirsty for a Bombay Saph &T!

I'm so loving this door!
Due to my desire to put blue *somewhere* in my house, my daughter will be getting a room in Robin's Egg blue! Sigh, I'll have to wait till the front entry is done first before beginning yet another project!
