Brilliant Blue

I mentioned in my first post New Colors for a New Year that I have very few bright colors in my wardrobe. I like to play it safe with neutrals; the always chic black, tan, and gray. I do however make one exception to that rule–Cobalt! A beautiful, bold, vibrant blue, it is the most intense addition to any wardrobe or room. As in Greek architecture, it is most dramatic when contrasted with bright white.

This room says it all. The contrast is beautiful! Patricia Gray Interior Design. Farrow & Ball Paint No.253 Drawing Room Blue.


The new book "Style and Substance, The Best of Elle Decor" is full of examples of beautiful blue interiors.

Domino Magazine. I love the geometry of this space. The contrasting white trim emphasizes all of the different shapes.

I love Jonathan Adler's nautical link cobalt wallpaper, and it is a great contrast to his white ceramic decorative pieces.

"Variations on Blue" Architectural Digest.

This room almost mimics the image of the Greek architecture along the Mediterranean coast. Deep cobalt blue, stark white, and sand.

The inspiration for it all…

Santorini, Greece.
