Blue - Cool and Calm

Personally I love blue and think that sky blue is a great color for a room in a hot climate.  The color swimming pools and summer skies, blue always suggest vacation time to me. 

Blue is also a calming color which means it would be wonderful in a child's room, a guest room or a bedroom. 

The mixed patterns and the leading edge on the curtain panels are favorites of mine. 

The aqua color certainly makes me think of the ocean.

Once again the blue is a reflection of the beautiful ocean outside of the windows.  The banding on the bed skirt, the contrast welt on the chairs and the tassel trim on the window panels are a few of my favorites in this room.

Blue = Calm = Great for a "tween" room.

This use of dark blue grounds this room.

Blue in a bathroom always suggests clean . . . like that.

The blue ticking used on the window shades and the simple addition of the blue pillow against the nearly all white background suggests a clean and fresh feel to this child's room.

The layered patterns, with a continuous use of blue within this room, once again give a feeling of peace.
