Moodboard | Shades Of Blue |

I probably don't give blue the attention it deserves here on my blog. It is in fact one of my favorite colors. Maybe it's just that I take it for granted and I forget to give it all the love it deserves. But I truly love the versatility of blue - it can be calming and serene, vibrant and cheery, modern and classic, or deep and moody. Here are a few of my favorite images that I have come across this week featuring lovely hues of blue. 

I am especially in love with the painting (image 5) by Michael Carson and I may soon have to dedicate a post just to his work, it is exquisite.  

I also came across this behind the scenes post of designer Rebecca Atwood at Apartment 34 (second image), I am besotted with her textile design work and as always I love a good behind the scenes look of creatives. One of my dreams is to have space enough that I could also get messy with trying out different textile design techniques. And this feature makes it all look so lovely.

  1. I am in love with this post in so many ways. I don't give enough attention to blue either. But I need to get in that lake NOW. :)

    A behind the scenes of creatives post would be super wonderful. And yes, more on that artist pleaseandthankyou.

  2. I really like seeing it paired with white - always so clean and crisp.
    Loving that linen (?) throw on the bed in image #3.

  3. I am loving that artist, Michael Carson! His painting is the first thing that I noticed. I just went to artnet and saw his other painting, "Painted myself into a corner" and I'm swooning over the way the blanket looks. So textured, so lovely.

  4. Ooh, please do a post on Michael Carson! I bet there are some beauties in his collection, if that painting is any indication. What a wonderful array of blues; you're right, it has such versatility. xo

  5. The photo of the lake makes me want to jump in, although the water is probably freezing. After my swim I would take a nap in the bed right next to it. I am with Santa and like the linen throw. And yes to more on Michael Carson. Will be clicking over to the behind the scenes post now...

  8. I've been admiring so many blue rooms recently that the decision is made - we are having a blue bedroom - well, certainly blue details. The white bedroom here with the blue throw and dark floor is lovely.
