Fresh Start Color Palette: Crisp Blues

House Tour Inspiration Gallery

Nothing motivates my desire for order more than a pretty picture, and during this month of fresh starts I've been drawn especially to the soothing and refreshing side of the color wheel— blues! Blue gets a bad rap for being cold and aloof, but we've seen quite a few examples in our house tours that are anything but icy or uninviting.

Blue has long been a favorite pick for bathrooms, but when balanced by warmer accent colors or cozy textures its a perfect pick for bedrooms, living rooms, and, well, every room!
