The influence of a bud vase or feeling blue

I've been spending a lot of time on Etsy (procrastinating).  As you know, my dear readers, I've been obsessing about all things pink lately.  I can't get enough.  Then I saw it.  A sweet little bud vase in a minimal shape.


In cobalt blue.  That did it.  Now I can't stop thinking about blue.  I adore cobalt blue, and I also love periwinkle and turquoise.  Image Blue Room Pottery.

I love this room painted in cobalt blue.  That white sofa really pops.  Even though the wall color is  electrifying, the room appears calm.  Calm is achieved by keeping all the accents in the same color and  balancing them with large amounts of white.  Image Chris Everard.
I love this headboard and lamp!  Also Chris Everard.

 I love these club chairs from CB2.

Beautiful ceramic collection from The End of History.

 I love these lamps!  Image via Alice in Designland.

A room by my favorite designer, Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz.  Benjamin always demonstrates how restful monochrome can be.  Dreamy.  Love the shape and color of those sofas.  Guess I'll be adding blue in my Spring decor.

Oh, it feels so good to have inspired you. I love the color BLUE, and it doesn't make me feel blue at all! It is actually very uplifting and very spiritual.

Thanks for featuring my little pebble here, I love your beautiful blog!
