Feeling Blue?

I love the color BLUE.  I always have. When I was young my bedroom had BLUE walls. I had comforters and pillows of BLUE.  It was all BLUE…except for the pink reclining chair I sat in to do my homework and watch baseball (hour after hour).

BLUE, any shade, is a color that makes me smile.  It gives me a burst of energy.  It excites me.  Maybe not surprising given that the color BLUE is often used to awaken artistic expression and inspiration.  Well, I’m here to say it works!

Let’s get inspired with some BLUE!  Here are my favorite BLUE inspirations from the last few weeks.

Love the orange and turquoise and the tree on the wall.  What a great headboard substitute!

You can just move those chairs and that couch right into my living room, thank you!

To Resolve Project

I LOVE the To Resolve Project.  Creatives illustrating their New Years Resolutions.  And what’s even better, they are available for download onto your iPhone.  If one catches your eye or fits your resolution give it a try!

I’d like to sit in this room and read my blogs and emails tomorrow morning (but I’d probably end up staring at the painting and the chandelier all day).  What would you do in this room?

WAIT!  Really?  Check out this dipped furniture.  How FUN is this.  I want to try this NOW!  What can you “dip”?

I had an idea in December to make a cute ruffle skirt for a chair slipcover I have that needs a little personality.  I LOVE how it was done on this chair.  It inspires me even more to dress up my chair SOON!

I met artist John Murphy this weekend at the Brooklyn Flea.  His frames are beautiful!  They are made of resin and are sturdy and VERY colorful.  Shown is a great grey/blue color but there are lights, brights, neutrals.  Check them out!

I recently purchased this print from the talented Whitney Ferre.  Something got me the moment I saw it on her blog, Creatively Fit, and I had to have it.  I’m not sure  if it was my new “blue” shade or if it was something magical about this angel that spoke to me.  Whatever it was, she’s mine now and will be framed and hanging soon to soothe me with color.

I have a free gift for you today.  I’m giving you some of my own COLOR.
