Did you know they have all kinds of window film colors too? Speaking of color, I’ve been noticing my gravitation towards styling my home with shades of blue. I think style is an ever evolving behavior. It’s taken me a long time, and I don’t ever want to be finished, to figure out what I love in my home and what I don’t. More often than not, color is something we are drawn to naturally. This is the case with me and decorating with blue.

Starting with my Restless Sea {by Behr} dresser that I painted last year. It’s in my office and stores lots of paper supplies and the like. I found this previously white dresser on the sidewalk just a few houses down. We actually carried it home.

Re Painted Dresser

The other major blue piece is the coffee table I turned into an ottoman. This was another curb side find. There are many treasurers in the trash for sure.

I found this blue velvet fabric at a warehouse closing sale and couldn’t leave without it. I actually have 2 yards of it in grey I’m waiting to find a use for.

I always meant to change out the blue slipcover for another fabric for the spring or summer, but I can’t bring myself to take it off! I specifically make a slipcover just for that purpose, apparently my idea hasn’t worked.

Coffee Table Turned Ottoman


This was a blue dresser whose drawers didn’t work well anymore, so I made it into shelves. This was a piece I made over to sell; it was purchased a few months ago. Blue, blue, blue.

I couldn’t help myself from spray painting this little pet horse. He’s in the dining room on the bookshelves. You can catch a glimpse of the ottoman and pillows, in what color? Blue.

I guess I just love blue. Deep, dramatic blue. Have I gone too far with using the left over paint? Should I try and bring some yellow into my life? Sometimes I wonder if we have too many blue accents, so I’m trying to add variety to my color choices.

What may be my next color obsession?

How about Deep Amazon – this is the actual color name by Clark + Kensington. Fabulous right? I’ve already painted with it, and will show you soon.

Do you gravitate to a certain color or colors in your home? What are they?


  1. I’ll tell you, I never considered blue my thing but I can see some touches of blue/aqua creeping into our Key West house. Yours are awesome!!!

  2. My go to color is red. I love looking around and seeing that color pop out from different places. Though my office is a deep blue on the walls and I’m accenting it with yellows, glass, and whites. I think I might add in some silver in the coming weeks.
