Baby blues in grown up spaces!

Happy Monday to you! Hope everyone had a great weekend and a happy Fathers day was spent with all the dads in your life.  I must confess....I am a blueaholic. (OK yes, I know that is not really a word but a word I coined for all those obsessed with blue like me) I so  love the color in everything from decor to clothing to my car color to just about anything for that matter. Blues rock! I love them from the palest shyest blues to the darkest boldest navy's. There are few blues that I don't embrace or see the beauty in. One palette that I have always loved and been drawn to is a soft baby blue, even with a hint of gray, its such a soothing, serene, calming and elegant color. 
I am planning on my master bedroom being done in creams and pale pale blues. I cannot wait to start pulling it together, right now I am working on the carpeting and will go from there. I am not rushing, as I want it to be right therefore I will do my darnest from making hasty decisions. So in my quest for a beautiful pale blue master bedroom I have naturally acquired quite a lovely little collection of pictures for inspiration as you might imagine! Thought I might share them with you for all you blue lovers out there and for those of you aren't maybe I will make a convert out of you yet!! Here we go....onto a dreamy pale blue cloud!
