Sam Loves || Shades of Blue

October 08, 2013




So excited to have the tenth edition of  the "We love" series.  Here was the last post in the series in case you missed it.  To refresh your memory Sam from The Peak of Tres Chic and I will be gathering inspiration under a certain theme a couple of times a month and sharing it with you. Sam will guest post here in my blog and I will post at Sam's.  I guess you could say we are swapping for the day.  This time around its all about Shades of Blue!!

Hi all!  Sam here, from The Peak of Tres Chic, back for the 10th installment of the "We Love" series with Albertina.  Today, we're swapping posts to share our take on shades of blue- both for the closet and the home.  I have noticed that bold blue hues are popping up everywhere, and I'm particularly inspired by cobalt blue and royal blue.  I love the way different variations of the color can be layered together and still hold their own, like in this bedside vignette.  Also, I've always been a fan of easy, breezy dresses- and this bold royal blue number paired with black accents is so perfect.

So what's your take on bold blue hues- love it or leave it?  Are you a fan of the softer shades, too?  Come see Albertina's picks over at The Peak of Tres Chic.


[ For the Home: Barbara Cosgrove Gold Table Lamp $570/Coral Caribbean Roses $115/Turquoise Accent Table $873/Leigh Viner Fashion Illustration $28/Serena & Lilly Nailhead Upholstered Headboard $1,250]

[For the Closet: Current Elliot Soho Jacket $368/Mason by Michelle Mason Dress $450/Tom Ford Red Lipstick in Willfull $48/Black Joe's Pumps $135]

  16. Love blue! That room's wall colors look just like the color we painted my living room. And it is the color of the chairs I just bought for my dining room. So I guess you could stay that I am on board with blue!
