I've got the blues....in all its many shades!

Good morning. I have a small request. I get a fair number of anonymous comments which is totally fine. However many of those ask me questions about specifics on a post, like the name of a paint color or an architects name, and I am generally very prompt at getting back to people and always acknowledge the questions. But if you are anonymous I have no way of writing you back! So the best thing most likely to insure a reply is to click on the "email me" link on the right and it will allow you to email me directly with your question. Hope this clarifies things, as I am always more than happy to help/answer any questions.

Like blue? Me too, but I am sure that's not a big revelation if you have been coming to my blog for any length of time! I love blues from the palest milkiest grayest blues to the darkest inkiest navy. There is not a bad blue in my book. I find this color to be incredible versatile, uplifting, moody in a good way, dramatic when you want it to be and above all else beautiful! There are few colors paired with blue that don't look amazing, from all the neutrals all the way to rich browns. I know I will be using plenty of blue in my house as I start to decorate. So today is all about the many shades of blue that really light my fire. What is your opinion on blue? Like or love? Always love to know......
