A Client’s Love for Blue

My client came to me with many great attributes- good taste, decisiveness, and a love for all shades of blue. Her favored palette choice ranges from dark indigo, sapphire, cobalt, to sky blue. (In this case she’s a North Carolina native so it’s a clear Tar Heel sky blue).


Blue and white was our jumping off point for several rooms. In the living room we started with an extensive, albeit unorganized, collection of antique blue and white delft pottery vases and urns. We grouped disparate styles of display brackets over the sofa and washed them in milk paint for continuity.


Generous blue taffeta curtains accented with cut crystal curtain finials add more glamour.


The garden room has a neutral backdrop accented with blue ombré velvet pillows and tie dyed glazed table lamps.

Our favorite blue paint colors:

Farrow and Ball: Dix Blue and Oval Room Blue
