Flowers in Blue

Is blue still for boys? Rachel helped her friend paint these great blue flowers in her nursery. Her friend is having a girl and her husband thought this color looked too much like a boy's room. What do you think?

Rachel told us this project only took one afternoon. "Using a shade or two darker than the color on the wall, we freehand painted whimsical flower silhouettes around the room up to chest height," she explained. Sounds simple- but we're not sure ours will turn out as pretty as these!

We are always fascinated by color and how much it affects us. Rachel's website is a great source for all things color. She always has insightful, thought-provoking posts about color in its many forms.
