A Blue Moment





Blue is just one of those colours I always love. It's such a classic colour which never seems to date; pale blue, navy blue, aqua blue, I love them all. Today I thought I would post some pictures of a chair I've just had recovered for my mum's bedroom in a pale blue and cream basket weave fabric on the front and a pale blue and cream broad stripe on the back. I've also posted a little snippet of my new kitchen in which I have hung some blue and white Spode plates (given to Brad & I as wedding gifts). Mixed with white, blue is just so fresh and summery. I also love it mixed with hot pink too.

I find all of your interiors inspiring but I especially love your use of blue and white. It's always so fresh and modern!

Hi Anna,
beautiful chair!
Would you mind to share a bit more of your new kitchen? Kitchens are so important, we spend so much time in it, and yet there are so little posts about it.
Thanks in advance,
ciao

When I saw the image of the chair, I thought, "Oh, that reminds me of Anna's mom." Funny! It's adorable, she a very lucky mom.

Anna,
Is your mums house completely decorated with the blue and white theme? I have the perfect picture (chair related) that reminds of her interior, but I'm not sure how you post pics. Should I email it?

Love the way you play with the blues. Your kitchen plates are looking lovely beside the orchid plant. I like it all...

Great chair! I love reuphostering chairs like this and mixing and matching the fabrics. That's what makes them so fun.

The chair is such a success Anna!

Blue is my favorite color, too. Especially a blue-green, but I love any blue. That first photo is absolutely gorgeous. Simplicity, serenity and beauty....just gorgeous! I am loving these photos from your mother's place!

I love that chair! Especially how you used two different fabrics.

I think blue looks good with every colour. It's my favorite hands down.

The fabric selection for the chairs is marvelous! I love how you chose to mix the fabrics.

I love blue and white and I think hot pink goes with anything. I have too much blue and white but when I see a piece of china at a yard sale for $1 it's hard to resist, no matter how humble he piece.
