Feeling Blue?

I know I am.
And by blue, I don't mean sad or depressed. Quite the contrary.
I am loving me some blue lately. Especially the deep saturated blues. Peacock blue. Prussian blue or (gasp) teal, even.

I'm not sure if I'm up for painting a whole room yet. Maybe just my closet.

Here's a swatch I painted. And yes, my college diploma is in my closet. Isn't yours?

For now, I've just been adding pops of this blue (and other shades too) throughout the house.

My foo dogs protect the mess on my desk while adding some much needed color to my bedroom. I know they may be so last season, but I still love them anyway. Just as I love the slightly, um, unusual paper weight (just to the left of the foo dog) my daughter made in art last year. I'm calling it folk art.

What color are you "feeling" right now?

Well I have always been partial to tones of the earth and will probably never venture too far from them although I do have my one departure and it too is an ode to blue. My master bedroom is enveloped in blue which was supposed to have been a bit deeper than it is. I ended up with something more in the Tiffany Blue range but I think all the rich wood tones and bronze curtains offset it nicely. I have come to love it. Now if I can just keep it clean......
