Robin's Egg Blue

Finding a pale, broken robin's egg on the ground is a sure sign that spring is in full force. We like the color just as well in the home, where its pale iciness can be refreshing in a sunny bedroom, unexpected in a kitchen and cheery in a living room. Paired with white and black, it's glamorous; with brown and wood tones, it's classic; while, bright touches of color (like red!) make it fun and folkloric. See for yourself!

  • Used in the kitchen, and especially dramatic when paired with a glamorous light fixture, blue is an unexpected and cool color for a room that often veers into the warmer end of the spectrum.
  • David's Robin's Egg Refreshing Room: David entered our Room For Color contest last year with this happy blue bedroom.

  • Headboard Idea: Blue Racing Stripes: Blue can also tip glamorous when paired with white and black. Even with the tongue-in-cheek use of stripes as in this bedroom.
  • Kelly Osborne's Blue Bathroom: This bathroom is awash in a blue from the tiles to the cabinetry for a clean, fresh feeling.

  • Blogging...Our Home Decor Style And How It Rarely Changes: If you're too timid to paint your whole room blue, refresh an old chair with a happy coat of paint. Paired with a dark wood table, it's a classic color combination that's anything but childish.
