I think I’m in my “Blue Period”. No, I’m not depressed (although I could be depending on the results of Mr. Bingley’s blood work). I have six blue rooms in my house. And I picked the color for five of those rooms. I had no blue rooms at my old house. What caused this? I was not reading blogs at the time of this decision. The only shelter magazine I was receiving was Cottage Living (still sad and bitter about that). Isn’t it strange that I bought a new house towards the end of the brown trend and the beginning of the gray and white trend, and without knowing about any of this trend stuff, I chose blue for many rooms and the neutral I chose has gray undertones, not brown. It’s weird how we all absorb information without knowing it.
Did you know that at the beginning of this year, Pantone announced that turquoise is the “color of the year”? Apparently, a lot of design bloggers were like, “Duh!”. I wasn’t. But I’m not a design blogger. Then I started to look around my house. I was shocked by all the things I now own in the realm of turquoise and aqua. And I’m not even talking about my closet.
It has even migrated to my dish problem. If you want the recipe,click here. It’s not really my recipe. My friend Lou’s mom gave it to me years ago. I got that dish from an Etsy seller. I would pass on the information here, but I can’t find it. Sorry! It’s really cool. It has a lettuce pattern all over it.
The table pictured above is three Ikea ottomans stacked, with a tray from Wisteria on top. Here is a closer look at the table:
