Designer Blues Make For Happy Rooms

If you're looking for a new idea for your room, a fresh color palette for spring, take on blue.  The Blues are in the air right now and interior designers are using the hue in every variation.  Red, green, and gray are all adding to the sophistication of the blue palette these days.  Whether you love blue violet, turquoise, or a powdery steel blue, you're still very much on top of the Blue trend.

Blue is even a favorite of many people internationally and across both genders.  It's restful, relaxing, and confident in many ways so it can work for a living room, powder room, or even a bedroom shared by both a boy and a girl! 

Because blues can look great with everything from crisp whites or bold oranges, it's a very versatile color that works well with what you already have.  I've used Prescott Green HC-140, a soft toned green blue on the walls in the sitting room adjacent to my bold Autumn Cover 2170-30 dining room.  I use clean white china with blue and gray patterns at the table to bring that subtle color connection into the space.  How do you do blue?
