i've got the blues

The blue bus is calling us.
Jim Morrison, American Poet & Musical Artist
Those of you who have read my blog for a while know that I have an adoration for the color blue...perhaps it is because I was raised on the deep blue Great Lakes or maybe it's the color of my aura.  However you slice it...I've had the blues ever since I can remember.  But who can blame me when you see these beautiful designs from Jim Howard appearing in the current issue of House Beautiful.  I adore the subtle blues accented with the deep pink and the stark white...harmonious!  This is what my dream home looks like.  Check out this bedroom! Subtle, graceful and playful...
Although if I had my druthers, I would pick this one (there's a tiny blue blanket on the bench so it works!)
This gathering room is airy and yet formal...a deeper navy blue paired with grey.  I can barely see the skyline out the windows...but I am sure it looks fabulously romantic on an over-cast day.
Finally, this living room is from an LA home...blending various blues in a great concerto...inspiration at it's best!
Do you ever have the blues...send me your best!
