Sweet blue

Whenever I think of painted wood furniture, I always think of white. But lately I keep seeing all these beautiful pieces, painted a lovely shades of blue.




















I'm not sure any blue painted furniture would fit with my house, but that doesn't stop me from falling just a little in love with it!
Best wishes,

I am besotted with the last image - the striped chair the little still life painting & the darling blue cabinet. Perfection!

Such pretty pictures. Gotta love blue. It makes a room feel so calm and relaxing. It's definitely my go-to color of the moment.

It's so soothing. I really like that first picture. All that white and just a little blue. Very nice.

Gorgeous! I especially love the first photo. You have such a wonderful blog; we seem to share the same exact style! I really enjoy coming here to see what you come up with each day!

It was nice to read this post on my favourite colour. Although in interiors natural colours have my preference, I can't resist a blue accent. :o)
I especially like the bedroom picture (beautiful greyish blue on the wardrobe) and of course the last picture (a beautiful still life).

Oh i just love a beautiful grey blue and paired with white? So classic, so gorgeous. The first photo is my ideal boys' room in a beach house.
All of it is just lovely!

Such lovely pics. Blue is such a soothing colour and adds a little interest to an all white bedroom. I just love all those blue cupboards. Makes you want to get the paintbrush out!

With the first picture I immediately thought "beach house", every other picture just reinforced that thought. It's a lovely bedroom, that first one.

I like the looks of the blue in a cottage atmosphere, where there is a lot of white in the room. Not in my house of course, but I like it. :)

Thanks to a bad experience MOTH had with a previous wife, he's banned me using this shade of blue anywhere. I'm just about to haul him up from the fire to have look at this glorious post - thanks Catherine, I reckon it might be enough to change his mind, 'cos I love it.
