August Color of the Month Blue

It’s officially back to school and very soon as we enter October it will be time for a new color of the month! But before we usher in a new color, I thought it might be a great opportunity to reflect on what “works” about our current  COLOR OF THE MONTH Cathy’s Barcelona Blue from my own paint collection at Mythic Paint!

Here are some great accent pieces that I think would fit in extremely well in a room using this blue color!

1. Lamp – idecorstore.com has such cute things! Definitely worth checking out!

2. Chair – I am and have always been a fan of West Elm. Their furniture does run on the expensive side but is high quality and lasts forever!

3. Quilt – I love this quilt from Serena and Lily. It’s perfect for a summer home or a bedroom! It’s warm and inviting yet not too hot! Perfect colors.

4. Pillow – Why not add a little fun to your room with this Jonathan Adler pillow. Tiger stripes in a subtle blue to add just enough “oomph” to your otherwise dull room!!

Blue is so versatile. Often people think blue can only act as a cool color to tone down a bright space. Blue can also act as a wonderful color to lift the color or mood in a space. Blue has the ability to highlight beautiful windows and the views in those spaces!
