blue 02 + blue 07 + blue 12



I got a huge pile of really old magazines from a friend the other day.. and flipping through them I wondered what it is with the color blue.... I had just bought the Elle UK Decoration that had a big blue section. VT Wonen added a lovely Style guide to one of their latest issues with examples on how to use blue into your home. And there I was with a pile of magazines from 2002 talking about Blue... and another from 2007 talking about blue.  

For me blue says definitely summer, sun, holidays and good memories of far away places. It is the color that always return every spring throughout my whole life. {See here last years post} And now I am wondering if Blue returns into the magazines every year as well around this time? Is it always there or a returning theme every few years?? 

I am adding some new blues into my hallway at the moment by filling a little part of the wall with frames and pictures. How about you.... are you dreaming of summer already?

I discovered I am not the only one thinking of blue this week.. for more inspiration you can have a look at Karine's cupboard below and her blue post from today here ...

Ik verlang ook naar blauw. Strak blauwe lucht met een heerlijke zon.

En van jouw foto's word ik al vrolijk.
Fijn weekend.

Ik 'blauw' ervan ;) Ik omring me altijd graag met turkoois, zo heerlijk sprankelend en rustgevend!

Dromen over de zomer doe ik zeker... En nu al helemaal sinds ik op de radio hoorde dat het kwik einde van de week richting de 20 graden gaat!!! Maar de drang om kleuren in huis toe te voegen... neuhhh...............:-)

Groetjes Judith

Like you..blue for means holidays! That's why I painted our shutters in blue in France so it wold scream to me 'you're now on holidays baby!!"

I'm pretty sure it's a recurrent theme for interior mags. Living Etc has each year an issue called the White issue
Have a great weekend. Just had lunch with some friends, have eaten too much...

I didn't realise that blue had been so popular Desiree ..... blue has never been my favourite colour when it comes to decoration but, I love the litle touches that you have added. As long as it's done in moderation I like it. I shall have to search out some of my blue things.
Hope you are having a lovely weekend Desiree. XXXX

You have found the perfect shades of blue!
It's funny how the Hungarians are not familiar with using blue in interiors. As a Finn I'm a great fan of blue.

Luckily I'm in the middle of summer in Miami still some weeks...

Blue is a lovely color to put in the interior. Take a look at my livingroom with the big blue clock :)

Mijn zoon Sam zei, toen hij nog heel klein was:
"Het blauw duwt de wolken opzij".
Ik vond het zo mooi, dat ik de tekst op de schutting heb geschilderd

Your new design looks great!!

I think blue comes every spring, but I don't like it... I don't have anything blue in my home at all. :D But it's supposed to be the most popular colour in the world.

Nathalie- regards et maisons said...

ça a changé ici ! Très jolie bannière. ET oui au bleu d'été.

Annie said...

It's because blue is the most popular colour - fact! Probably because we all originated in water millions of years ago. But just looking at blue cheers me up. Makes me whistle merrily!
