Remember, "from carrots you get beautiful eyes", 
Haha.. I remember my mom saying this when I was a kid.

Interior 2015 - Hues of Blues

Interior ideas with the trending color blue

Blue will be the most popular accent color and is the perfect complement to Marsala, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year.
“Pops of indigo blue or deep navy will become a staple in home design this year, as their deep natural hues become extra vibrant against warm earth tones like Marsala,” says Zillow Digs home design expert Kerrie Kelly

I am not sure if it is really going to be the most popular color for interiors this year. Fact is though that blue is liked by many, including me!

Blue, the color of water and sky!

Blue reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order - we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky.

I have been thinking of creating a beach teamed gallery wall with pictures I took of the beach here.  I am loving the blue trend, living by the sea, a touch of nautical is always a good idea!

There really are so many possibilities to add some blue hues to your home.

Have a wonderful day,
