We first spied Susie's use of blue in this pairing of a mismatched dresser and shelf. Delightful the way the two work together now with that cheerful blue paint and contrasted paneling. Then we spotted soft blues sprouting up in other photos of Susie's UK cottage...
Here, another shade of blue in this small kitchen cabinet. Susie's self-proclaimed "cluttered kitchen"
looks downright charming to us. We never would have thought of these particular colors, tiles, and checked curtain below the countertop, but here they work splendidly!
And there's a use for a nonworking fireplace. Its colors echo the contrasted colors in the first picture, this time paler.
