Room Love: Blue

I'm in a blue mood today...

I've been daydreaming about the Dream House again. I'm picturing blue design elements being used throughout the house. I'm envisioning the front door being painted a beautiful blue (the same colour as the one shown above), and the study being painted a gorgeous blue hue (much like Jeanette Whitson's library painted Farrow Ball’s Hague Blue, top image, shown above)--actually, they seem to be nearly the same shade. I have always loved blues, from light to dark, cool to warm, I love them all.

Maybe the reason I'm in the mood for the colour blue today is because, two days ago, Glen and I found out that we are having a baby boy. I'm 20 weeks along, which means that I'm halfway through my pregnancy. It's so exciting to imagine our life with this new little person. As much as I'm a girly girl, and I adore all things pink and pretty and feminine, I will certainly love this boy of ours.

Nobody does blue like you do blue! And congrats again on the boy bun in the oven. There is SO much cute stuff out there for boys, I have no doubt he will be one styling little man. Can't wait to see him and watch him grow (albeit from a distance).

Thank you so much, Laurie! I'm going to enjoy shopping for him, and sharing photos and stories of life with a baby. :-)

Hi Kim-it makes me so happy that my blue library is giving you inspiration all the way over in Australia! I was an expat in Jakarta, Indonesia for four years so know what it's like to be so far away from home. Good luck to you and congrats on a beautiful baby boy - mine just turned 17 and he's been a lot of fun!

Best,

Jeannette
