You know we love us some blue around here, but lately POOL BLUE has been capturing our hearts in an unexpected way.
Now this isn’t your average baby boy blue, or Carolina blue. It’s not a rich royal primary blue but it doesn’t lean green or purple. We are talking about a soft hue with a hint of age, maybe a dusty grey got mixed in, or even a touch of brown, something to give it a bit more complexity… more than a pastel hue, but a blue that has been around and holds more in its knowing layers than the soft candy hue that might come to mind when one thinks of the average light blue.
Have a look at some of the inspirations below that we have been pinning and hopefully you will see what we mean.
You can get a dose of pool blue from Anthropologie’s Linen Maryn Sofa.
change things up in the mudroom and instead of white wainscoting and built-ins, consider a bold blue
the little dresser you picked up at the tag sale with new brass hardware and blue paint, also notice the deets a little tassel accouterment, like this one
snuggling up with this headboard every night, not half bad
blue bottom cabinets contrasting brilliantly with the checkerboard floor
pool blue makes a big appearance, charming cottage style
a bold color on the door in a neutral room
fun color on a cottage or bungalow that you don’t see everyday, black frame windows give it a little sophisticated edge so we don’t just say “aaaah that’s cute”instead we say “ah look at that house, that’s a cool color”
This is Ben Moore’s Gray Owl (eyerbody’s fav) paired up with Ben Moore’s Blue Jean, the pocket door at the Bennett Kitchen remodel was so close to being Blue Jean
