True Blues – Decorating with blue fabrics, wallpaper, etc

Did you know that the colour Blue is thought to bring tranquility indoors?  It is also said that, used in soothing collections of aqua hues, it evokes memories of the sea, calming waters and ocean tides which are often the base for creating restful spaces… I can’t help but wonder if this is the reason why we often use all shades of blue to decorate boys bedrooms… blue curtains, blinds, cushions, etc.

I have two boys of my own and God knows I’d do anything to bring a little calm and tranquility back into my home!

Blue is this Pantone’s colour of the month, here’s a few images I love showing the result of decorating with blue!
