I have a soft spot for the Blues.
Be it stripes, plains, blues with white, soft pastels, rich turquoise and especially deep dark BLUES. I LOVE THEM ALL!
Although not overtly BLUE, this home makes my heart sing!
My love affair with this home started with THE Sofa
A shapely number, with generous proportions. The blue and white stripes present a fresh, crisp tailored look, but when you get closer, I suspect it has a soft side that allows you to sink into it's embrace!! I think I love this sofa!!
Ok. .. so moving away from THE Sofa now!
Let's take in a full view of this room.
Oversize white lamps on mismatched pedestal tables flank THE Sofa and create a nice visual frame. Darker colours, introduced by way of deep blue armchairs and rattan covered ottoman, ground the room and stop it from feeling too floaty. And the Indigo throw cushion ties in with these deeper shades and brings the eye back to (yep you got it) THE Sofa!
Here's a close up of Armchair and Ottoman
Cousins to THE Sofa.
Love the rattan tray!
In the bedroom the owner has taken a departure from the blues by way of an antique french screen, decorated in rich grass green with subtle pink flower accents. Paired with crisp white linen, these colourings results in a clean fresh restful space.
Now here's a surprise.
The rest of the house is a careful study of balanced tones ... But here in the bathroom, Bold Turquoise takes the stage!
Sadly here we are at the entrance, and time to take our leave.
I do hope you have enjoyed this little tour of;
'The home of THE Sofa'!
I'm off to find my stripey blue cushions!
