Color Story : Summer Blues

I’ve been pinning and noticing a whole lot of dark blue interiors and fashion outfit images lately, so it’s no wonder these fresh deep and calming hues inspire me at home as well this summer. There is something so soothing about these summer blue hues…

It really doesn’t take much to update a space with some fresh deep blue hues. Here, some simple wrinkled linen blue pillowcases add a splash of summer freshness to this simple bedroom.

I love collecting mis-matched dessert/side plates, and these lovelies make my heart happy this summer. The flower patterned plates are from different Anthropologie home collections, and the Coves of Cornwall (top right) ones are by artist Rick Stein and on constant rotation this summer at home.

  1. While a deep, rich blue rises and falls in popularity/trendiness, it never, ever goes completely out of style.
    BTW: We have some ancient blue cushions for the outdoor table. They are real cotton–not some weird combo–and when they faded (sun, age) I really hated to get rid of them. So I bought some dye. And it worked great! I then was inspired to go through my closets and dig out all the tired blacks that no longer were black enough, and to dye them. Mostly excellent results (a couple of pieces with polyester blend were more resistant to dye). It was like getting all new stuff, for very little expenditure–and certainly more environmentally sustainable than buying all new. Anyway, dark colors like blue and black are particularly easy and amenable to staying refreshed.

  2. I’m totally in love with blue all year long therefore, I just love these inspiring images. Indigo blue is probably my ultimate favorite and hence, those mismatched dessert plates of yours are just my cup of tea. xx
